Drinking smoothies is a great summer activity. Kids love them, they help adults and children beat the heat, and are naturally gluten free foods that everyone can enjoy. I can’t image anyone making or drinking a smoothie containing wheat, barley, or rye.
Most of the smoothie recipes mentioned suggest (or is it their recommendation?) that coconut, soy, hemp, almond, or other types of milk be used. This makes convenient for vegans as well as for people who are lactose intolerant, of course, but that is not the only reason for looking at alternative milks. Each type od milk has its own taste and texture that imparts something very special to the finished product.
