Este trabalho objetivou realizar uma revisão de literatura sobre bebidas mistas de frutas e vegetais e seus principais componentes no contexto do consumo alimentar. O presente estudo é uma revisão narrativa elaborada a partir da consulta em diferentes bases de dados, como: Web of science e Science Direct. Optou-se pela busca por termos livres. Os termos  juice, drinks foram combinados com as palavras fruits “AND” vegetables  para localizar estudos sobre os dois temas. Posteriormente, a fim de selecionar estudos com os principais componentes das bebidas mistas, foram utilizados  os termos livres “citrus limon”, “Malus domestica”, “Ananas comosus”, “Cucumis savitus”, “Brassica oleracea”, “Spinacia oleracea”, “Zingiber officinale” e “Mentha ssp”. O critério de inclusão dos trabalhos foi pautado na seleção de materiais que tivessem por objetivo estudar os efeitos isolados do consumo dos  principais ingredientes das bebidas mistas, como também os artigos que utilizaram a bebida mista  com alegação “detox” nos estudos. O direcionamento dos artigos selecionados está relacionado com a prospecção da atividade antioxidante e, apesar da composição das bebidas ser diversificada, destacam-se o uso de maçã, de repolho e de pepino como ingredientes das preparações. As bebidas mistas, sucos ou smoothies apresentaram variável composição que determina os atributos sensoriais, composição físico-química, compostos bioativos e atividade antioxidante.

This study aimed to conduct a literature review on mixed fruit and vegetable drinks and their main components in the context of food consumption. The present study is a narrative review elaborated from the consultation in different databases, such as Web of science and Science Direct databases. It was chosen to search free terms. The terms juice, drinks were combined with the words fruits “AND” vegetables to locate studies on both themes. Subsequently, in order to select studies with the main components of mixed drinks, the free terms "citrus limon", "Malus domestica", "Ananas comosus", "Cucumis savitus", "Brassica oleracea", "Spinacia oleracea" ”,“ Zingiber officinale ”and “Mentha ssp ”. The inclusion criterion of the studies was based on the selection of materials that aimed to study the effects of vegetable consumption alone, which are the main ingredients of mixed drinks and included articles that used the mixed drink or juices with claim “detox” in the studies. The direction of the selected studies is related to the prospecting of antioxidant activity and, although the drinks composition is diverse, the use of apple, cabbage and cucumber as ingredients of the preparations stand out. Plant foods are important sources of nutrients for food. The mixed drinks, juices or smoothies presented variable composition that determines the sensory attributes, physicochemical composition, bioactive compounds and antioxidant activity.
