Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Why a book about smoothies?

Juicing books currently on the market do not provide "professional" smoothie recipes nor, do they provide a historical view of the "smoothie". They word smoothie can mean anything. The book contains a smoothie ranking system (see Chapter 2) that defines and ranks the different kinds of smoothies.

The juice/smoothie industry is growing at a steady rate. Smoothies aren’t a fad; they are solid trend. The juice and smoothie industry addresses consumers need for alternatives to fast food and is driven by customer demand for healthier meal alternatives. What is the staying power of smoothies and fresh squeezed juice?

Most cultures of the world recognize the virtues of juice. Therefore, the juice/smoothie concept has international appeal. The products sold have customer appeal and satisfy the need for a healthier alternative to conventional fast food. The products appeal to a large demographic span: From children to grandparents. The smoothie can positioned as a: Meal replacement, meal enhancement or a dessert. In simple terms, the juice/smoothie business is fun!

Trivial facts about smoothies in the history section are great.

Hi my name is Trevor. I am a smoothie fanatic! I bet I have every smoothie book ever written in my collection. But, NONE compare to, Smoothies! The Original Smoothie Book - Recipes From the Pro's, by Dan Titus.
If you are looking for REAL smoothie recipes that are the kind made in REAL juice bars, I highly recommend this book. Mr. Titus not only includes industry recipes, he also includes a history of the juice and smoothie business.
Dan Titus, thank you for writing such a work of art!

This is the best money I have spent this year! I got real smoothie recipes from my favorite juice bars. Juice it Up!, and Jamba Juice. There are over 80 smoothie recipes in this book, so I am going to be busy! I highly recommend this book!

`Smoothies, The Original Smoothie Book' by Dan Titus is the sixth book on smoothies I am reviewing. These six fall into three different categories. The first, with titles such as `The Smoothies Bible' by Pat Crocker and `The Ultimate Smoothies Book' by Cherie Calbom claim to be `everything you wanted to know about smoothies. In this category, the first is far superior to the second. The next category, with titles such as `Ultimate Smoothies' by Donna Pliner Rodnitsky and `The Best 50 Smoothies' by Joanna White are quick references, presumably with a selection of the best recipes. Again, the first of these two titles is the better in this class.

Mr. Titus' book may seem to belong to the first category, but I think it really belongs in a third with `Smoothies for Life' by Daniella Chace and Maureen B. Keane, where these books claim to offer things which may not be in other books, without pretending to be a `complete' reference on the subject.

Dan Titus' angle is that his book includes recipes from six major smoothies and juice bar chains, with the claim that this means you can make them at home just the way they are made at these chains in your local mall. This `feature' has some serious shortcomings, as I describe below. Mr. Titus does give us something unusual in a little history of the smoothie and the leading smoothie franchise chains. He also gives us some rather nice tips on smoothie technique, including an explanation of the phenomenon of cavitation, so well known and loved by fans of the movie and novel `The Hunt for Red October'. While cavitation makes it easy to detect submarines by sonar, it spoils the action of a blender rotor, which, on close inspection, looks suspiciously like a submarine screw, hence, the common effect.

This book I highly recommend. Trivial facts about smoothies in the history section are great. For example, I did not know that the word smoothie originated in commerce for the first time as a trade name for brassieres and later for bathing suits!
I found the book to be more than a recipe book. It is the only book that attempts to educate you about smoothies from start to finish. Couple this together with the real approved "secrete" recipes from companies like Jamba Juice, and you have a REAL winner.
I found out that the book is certified by The Juice & Smoothie Association. The book is designed to educate consumers about smoothies. For example, smoothies are ranked from platinum to bronze based on how they are made: Platinum being with fresh ingrediants; bronze being process packaged ingrediants.
Anyway, cheers!

Hi, Jessie "Smooth" Johnson here... Take it from a smoothie NUT. I have all the smoothie books on the planet. This is the only book creates and delivers the goods. I took it to Palm Springs over spring break. Everyone kept saying, "How did you do this. These smoothies taste just like the ones I buy at home". Now they call me Jessie "Smoothie". Maybe I should open my own smoothie store!

This book is one of the best, if not the best book on smoothies. Getting more fruit into our diets is something we all aspire to, but few achieve. Between having to shop for it, getting it home, and it spoils one day later, makes the recommended daily levels fruit consumption a lot more difficult to achieve. Then along came smoothies, and now we freeze our fruit. Chop it up into little squares as soon as you get it home, and place it in zip loc bags. Then the smoothie is always ready; no more spoilage.
My favorite is to take banannas, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, strawberries, and blueberries to make an all fruit shake. In this book you see a lot of varieties of the smoothies.
It's worth it just for the redipes. Highly recommended.

Not overly impressed with this book. Contains too few recipes and too much frivolous info. Do I really care about the history of smoothies?? No, I just want good recipes, and this book contains too few of those.
