Everybody loves a smoothie, and they couldn't be simpler to make. In this mouthwatering new book, bestselling author Louise Pickford gives you a host of fabulous recipes to whiz up at home in minutes. Freshly made with stunning combinations of ingredients, you simply can't buy anything this good in a little plastic bottle! Start with a Breakfast Smoothie to get you going - perhaps an Apricot Energizer or Bananarama. Fruit Frappes (often made with fruit straight from the freezer) range from Fruit Bowl Frappe to Cherry Berry Crush. If you're on a health kick, try a Vegetable Juice, from Gentle Sunrise to a potent Hangover Cure. A chapter on Dairy Smoothies is a sophisticated update on the milkshake, while a section of dairy-free recipes offers plenty of variety. Low-fat ideas range from wonderful Watermelon and Pear Frothy to Pineapple, Lime and Yoghurt Shake. Finally, Louise offers Indulgent Smoothies for special occasions.
