It wasn't until the last few months that I started to really get serious about the idea. Although I have a huge collection of cookbooks, I also enjoy just trying my hand at making my own recipes. Since smoothies definitely allow for my style of cooking, I've been trying different combinations of foods in my smoothies.
Included here is my Green Smoothie #7 recipe. It makes about 20 ounces. I drink 10 oz. one morning and save the rest to drink the next morning. I use my Cuisinart Smart Stick to make my smoothies.
The Cuisinart Smart Stick can also be used to make creamy soups. One of my daughters introduced me to this great kitchen tool when she was trying out a lot of different soup recipes.
