-SIMPLE PLEASURES: All-Time Summer Favorites

Serves: 5



Smoothies are undoubtedly one of the most popular and refreshing taste treats to have emerged in recent years. The ones described in this chapter, made with a simple combination of fresh fruits and juices, are a healthy, lowfat, and delicious alternative to more fat- and calorie-laden blended drinks, such as malts, milk shakes, and blizzards. What's even more exciting about these sensational fruity concoctions is that the combination of ingredients you choose to create them is limited only by your imagination.

As you browse through this chapter, you'll be impressed with the great variety of fruit-and-juice combinations that are possible and with the delightful result that each recipe provides. Be ready to be impressed when you try "Give Peach a Chance," a refreshing smoothie made with peaches, banana, and orange juice. If tropical flavors suit you more, you'll be thrilled with the summer taste of "Stand by Your Mango," a delicious blend of mango, apricot, banana, and honey.

I hope that as you prepare smoothies from the recipes provided in this chapter, you'll feel encouraged to experiment with some of your own favorite fruit combinations. Once you have "tasted" success, nothing will stand in the way of creating your own signature smoothie.
