A well-chosen garnish can play an important role when you want to create something special out of a simple combinatio of smoothie ingredients. For those special
occasions when you want to elevate a smoothie to a memorable dessert, present it in an attractive champagne flute or a dazzling Chocolate Bag and garnished with
a Chocolate-Dipped Tortilla Triangle, a Chocolate Heart, or a Chocolate-Dipped Marshmallow. Even a basic fruit smoothie can be adorned with a Fruit Skewer or a
Lemon and Cranberry Twist. Better yet, all of these garnishes themselves are exceptionally delicious. Are you tempted yet?

In this chapter, you will find a host of novel ideas for creating a variety of garnishes. While they perfectly dress up a smoothie, many can be used for one of your other favorite desserts as well, such as a sundae, mousse, or a simple dish of ice cream. If you don’t have time to garnish, then you might consider picking up some fun accessories at your neighborhood party store such as multicolored and uniquely shaped straws, cocktail umbrellas, brightly colored metallic sparklers, or colored stirrers.

To garnish or not to garnish--that will no longer be the question once you see how easy it is and how impressive the results can be.
