Insanely hot weather and a need to eat a more balanced diet have led me to breaking out the blender once more.
While my family has a few standbys, such as a milkshake of ice, banana, cinnamon and milk, I'm anxious to try more ideas and expand my diet.
Enter a book I recently read, "What color is your smoothie?" Chocked full of 300 recipes, I'm never at a loss for a cool drink in rhe morning.
What I love about this book is not just the vst number of recipes, but how it gets you thinking outside the box. While I'm not quite ready for the "green" smoothies my friends have been trying, there are other veggie options ranging from fresh corn to mushrooms to garlic. I'd had never considered that before.There's also easy references in the back that talks serving sizes, nutrients and main benefits of produce.
I love the ease of this book, the wide range of ideas and the creativity it offers. And while I'm not quite ready to drink the entire rainbow, I can't wait to branch out more.
