A smoothie is a blended, chilled, sometimes sweetened beverage made from fresh fruit or vegetables and in special cases can contain chocolate. In addition to fruit, many smoothies include crushed ice, frozen fruit, honey or frozen yogurt. Some may also contain syrup and ice ingredients. They have milkshake-like consistency. Unlike milkshakes, they usually don't contain ice cream, but can contain milk.
Prunes are dried plums. Whole Prune/prune juice is best known for its laxative property. In addition to promoting regularity in the bowel movemnt, the prunes and prune juice concentrated the chemical that becomes LDL cholesterol (lithocholic acid) in the stool, effectively flushing cholesterol away. Prune juice may also help prevent estrogen-dependent breast cancer. By drinking a glass of prune juice a day, studies suggest you are strengthening your body’s defense against disease.
