Smoothies make a great addition to your collection of healthy snack recipes. Toss a few simple ingredients into your blender and you’ll have a delicious, sweet, colorful, grandkid-pleasing smoothie in no time. Smoothies are a feast for our eyes and bodies. They are filled with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phyto (plant) nutrients. Rich in soluble fiber, they are low in calories and fat. Plus, they are a healthy way to satisfy a sweet tooth due to the simple sugars they contain. What’s to love about smoothies? • No cooking! • There’s no limit to the fruits and flavors available. • They pull triple duty by satisfying hunger, quenching thirst and making a nutritious breakfast or snack. • They give overripe fruit a second life. • They are an imaginative way to slip more nutrients and fiber into everyone’s diets. 36 GRAND MARCH APRIL 2012
