Smoothies, Smoothies & More Smoothies!

Those with a soft spot for smoothies will find this collection of 100 blended drinks an indispensable reference. Grouped into themes, the duo put their blenders to the test, whipping up drinks for all occasions. Though the book leans heavily on bananas and yogurt, those averse to either ingredient will enjoy options like Orange Ginger Delight and Persimmon Protein Punch, which uses tofu and soy milk in lieu of yogurt. Substitutions are suggested, except in one puzzling case; readers may want to consider swapping the recommended brown sugar often employed for white. The veggie selections veer toward savory with the expected (gazpacho) and the challenging (Perfectly Pesto, a "salad in a glass"). Kids with blender skills will be able to whip up simple treats like Lovingly Lemon (a lemon popsicle, chopped pineapple, and pineapple juice) and the Nutty Nut (Nutella, banana ice cream, milk and pecans) with minimal supervision. And those who like their blended drinks with a kick will appreciate the many options, including Whisky-A-Cho-Co, a combination of chocolate ice cream, whisky, chocolate chips, and chili flakes. Packed with as much fruit as information; readers, start your blenders. (Apr.)
