When the original Ultimate Smoothie Book was first published, smoothies were sweeping the country and becoming the hottest item on the menu everywhere from Baskin-Robbins to Jamba Juice. And why not? They're creamy, fruity, delicious, quick and easy to make, and most important--they're good for you! Now, THE ULTIMATE SMOOTHIE BOOK has been updated by nutritionist Cherie Calbom, aka "The Juice Lady", to include lots of delicious new smoothie recipes, as well as vital new information on: Carbohydrate reduction, with special low-carb smoothie recipes. The recently discovered health risks of soy--and suggested substitutions wherever soy is called for. Coconut oil, the latest diet and health phenomenon.
