Any Time and Any Place: that's when and where to enjoy a smoothie. It takes just minutes to blend one--making them the perfect treat for any moment of a busy day. And nothing is more healthful and refreshing than the daily dose of fresh fruit they provide.
Smoothies is full of creative suggestions for adventurous mixtures of fruits and nectars, sorbets and ice creams, yogurts and soy milks, and for special occasions, a little champagne or rum! To start your day off right, enjoy a SMOOTHIE CLASSICO--the time-honored blend of orange juice, strawberries, and bananas that we've all come to know and love. For a quick lunch, try the BLACK BEAUTY, a lucious melange of succulent blackberries, sweet blueberries, chilled grape juice, and creamy vanilla yogurt. To boost your energy for a trip to the gym, savor a glass of MANGO MADNESS, juicy tropical gruit combined with ambrosial buttermilk, zesty fresh ginger, and tart lime juice. And wow your dinner guests with an elegant GOLDEN GIRL--sweet dessert wine paired with fresh pears and apricots.
