Are Smoothies Supposed To Have Ice Cream?
Smoothies do not generally have ice cream. Smoothies are considered a healthy beverage, which is why you won’t often find smoothies made with ice cream.
But, most smoothie chains or fast food chains that offer smoothies, will typically add heavy cream or ice cream to their smoothies.
