Smoothie Recipes Smoothies are popular in juice bars around the world. Smoothies are blended mixtures which are delicious and refreshing, satisfy your thirst and hunger at the same time, are favorites at meal time, snack time, and holiday party time, pack a powerhouse of healthy vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and are quick and are easy to make if you have a convenient book of recipes. Depending on your preferences, smoothies may combine some proportions of fruit, berries, nuts, sherbet, yogurt, juices, carbonated beverages, milk, grains, natural nutritional supplements, crushed ice, and/or whatever else I'm forgetting to mention. You push the high-speed button on your blender, and quickly create something that seems just too tasty and invigorating for being so simple and inexpensive to produce. Here are a few tips. 1. Use frozen juice concentrate. These are found in the cylindrical containers in your grocer's freezer section and come in a variety of flavors not limited to basic juice flavors, but also available in a assortment of lemonade combinations and mixed drink concentrates which are used for cocktails. (A word of caution: Don't forget to dilute.) 2. Use a frozen desert food. Sorbet provides the perfect base consistency for your smoothie and comes in a wide selection of flavors. Ice cream or even sherbet can also be used, adding their own uniqueness. Of course ice cream will yield more of a milk shake, but the selection of desired additional ingredients will produce a truly novel drink. 3. Freeze the fruit. Cut up the desired fruit medley for your smoothie and pop the fruit in the freezer for a couple of hours. This will create the needed frozen quality inherent to a smoothie but freezing the fruit will keep the consistency softer than regular ice cubes allowing your blender to better mix the drink. 4. Freeze the drink. Create your drink using a combination of fruit juice plus your desired fresh fruit. Then pour the drink into microwave re-heatable cups or glasses and freeze. After the drink is thoroughly frozen, microwave on low power for a short burst of time, just enough to slightly melt into slush. Remove from the microwave, stir and enjoy. 5. Slowly add ice to fruit and juice mixture. A common mistake is putting in the ice-cubes first and then attempting to crush them. Even on pulse mode this won't adequately crush the ice. You also run the risk of burning out the blender motor. The proper way is to add your juice or whatever liquid you want, then blend the fruit. As needed, stop the motor and push the fruit to the center using a rubber spatula. Once the mixture is evenly blended, slowly add an ice cube through the opening of the pitcher lid, sometimes referred to as the "feed hole." Keep adding one or two ice cubes at a time until the blender sounds smooth instead of gravelly. Once the desired consistency between fruit, ice, and juice has been achieved, your smoothie is ready. A frozen treat alternative to a smoothie is mixing juice with honey or some other kind of flavoring and then freezing. Once the mixture is frozen, remove from the freezer and chop with a fork until slushy. Garnish with fresh fruit and mint or grated coconut and present in a serving dish or tall glass with a spoon.
