I call these my "Smalts" because they are not quite a malt. They do have fruit, but I would not consider them one of my breakfast smoothies. So I guess they are better for you than a malt would be, but not really enough to get it to last from breakfast to lunch. Either way, they are refreshing and a good way to have a cold fruity drink. They are delicious!
