From the Inside Flap
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.

On the other hand, never have I seen drinks photographed so well! As an avid amateur photographer for many years, I found myself more interested in the setups for the photos than the recipes. Make this book a larger format and it'd be perfect for guests to look at while waiting for dinner! Kudos to the food stylist.
As with a prior reviewer (eric), this is not a book I would have bought had I come across it in a regular bookstore. I could have seen the recipes and known it wasn't for me.
If someone is looking for smoothies 'on the edge', this may be the book for you. If someone is looking for a basic book on making smoothies, look elsewhere.
Also, you don't have to follow the recipe to the tee! If it calls for Agave nectar, and you can't find it, just use honey. If it calls for boisenberries and you can't find them, then just use blackberries. If it calls for different oats or brans, just substitute with ones that you can find! You can make substitions. It's the idea behind the smoothie that counts - to give you some great ideas and insights.
It's really not that big of a deal as some reviewers are making it out to be. If you're really into smoothies and good health, then I would definitely recommend this smoothie book.
Also, the book was a good quality too. The cover was not solid, but it was not paperback either. It was almost like a thick vinyl. The pages were thick too and, again, the pictures were stunning!
Thumbs down for the overly prolific use of expensive nectars, all sorts of sorbets, things like blueberry yogurt, Peppermint Tea, soy milk, unsweetened cherry juice, silken tofu, carob powder, rice milk, strong-brewed chai, hazelnut-flavored syrup, and other trip-to-the-store stuff.
Thumbs down for being carelessly and wrongly sent to the "California Ambrosia" when looking up "Coconut" in the index--there's not a shred of coconut in that drink. Right page, wrong recipe. Carelessness in indexing is a revealing indication to me that the picture people had more on the ball than the author(s) and/or editor.
Thumbs down for the recipes being too large and awkward for a single serving.
Thumbs up for the inclusion of some alcoholic smoothies.
Thumbs up for taste (of those I've had on-hand ingredients to try).
Thumbs up for the photos, and the collection of "one-of" glassware props. The photos are first rate although more "coffee table" than kitchen counter; they are sure to make you want to climb aboard the smoothie wagon. The glassware could feasibly send you on a Thrift Store safari.
Thumbs up for the included nutrition info, I guess.
I have the distinct feeling this book was "forced." The authors would have been better off proposing a PBS Smoothie show. As a team, they certainly have the visual appeal.
For its price, this book seems more fizz than coke to me. I'd re-title it "Great Photos of Smoothies with Fetching Names: Recipies for the Silver-Spoon set."
Most people won't use this book to make smoothies with what's already in the pantry and in-season in the produce section, but need to head to the store's frozen food section to get fruit flavored sorbets (made with someone else's blender) and other things.
Say what you will of me, this was not only a poor choice, it's the closest I've yet come to returning a book to Amazon for a refund.
