The Smoothies Bible

by Pat Crocker


Smoothies It's 7:00 AM. Your eyes are still heavy with sleep. You need an Eye Opener. Take some orange juice, orange slices, pitted cherries, and strawberries, toss them into the blender, and voila! Breakfast!

It's a hot Sunday afternoon. Pour some chocolate milk, cocoa powder, honey, and chocolate yogurt or ice cream into the blender and cool off with a Triple Chocolate Snowstorm.

You're incubating a cold and feel the need for something healthy. Take some apple juice, spinach, avocado, watercress, and a sprig of parsley, drop into the blender, and in seconds you have what Pat Crocker calls C-Green.

One of the easiest and most delicious ways to consume the recommended 5 to 10 servings a day of fruits and vegetables is to drink them. Packed with nutrients and low in calories, smoothies are a fast, easy and great tasting way to achieve good health.
