Ever wanted to know where smoothies got their start? History tells us that Eastern and Mediterranean cultures have been producing pureed fruit drinks for centuries. But smoothies as we know them today have their real origin in 1922. That’s when Stephen Poplwaski, proprietor of Stevens Electronics in Rancine, Wisconsin, invented the first blender. And just like that, Americans had the means to experience the joys of well-mixed and pureed fruit drinks.
The health and food movement of the 1960s boosted the popularity of smoothies, and so began the search for the healthiest smoothie recipes that has lasted through till the present.
The 1970s brings us the etymology of smoothies, courtesy of a lactose intolerant man named Steven Kuhanu, founder and owner of The Smoothie King. Steven, wanting to enjoy something similar to the milkshakes his friends drank, began crafting smoothie recipes from frozen mixes of ice, fresh fruit and other healthy goodies. Kuhanu does not take credit for the name of the popular beverages though. Kuhanu cites hearing “hippies” in the late 1960s using smoothies to reference fruit juice-based drinks.
With roots originating from Mediterranean cultures, to a health craze that still has legs today, smoothies have had a sweet journey to say the least, and it’s clear that this drinkable fruit fusion has a big future.
