A smoothie is supposed to be made by pureeing raw fruits and/or vegetables in a blender. Typically, there is a liquid base added such as yogurt, milk, or juice. Smoothies are an excellent way to get in extra vegetables and fruits, especially for those who have trouble chewing hard foods or who have difficulty opening and closing their mouth. People suffering with TMJ problems, jaw pain, TMJ headaches and TMJ pain may experience these hardships. Besides providing an abundance of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, smoothies contain fiber from the raw foods, important for gut health.
