Smoothies! The Original Smoothie Book: Recipes From the Pros is the first book in The Original Series trilogy, by Dan Titus. This book begins with a history of the whimsical juice and smoothie industry, and defines the word smoothie from its early uses to its use today as a delectable drink. For example, the first reference to the words smoothie, smoothy, or smoothee was in the early 1930s and were used to sell bras and girdles! The book contains more than 80 professionally-developed smoothie recipes from companies like: Crazy Carrot, Robeks Juice, Jamba Juice, Planet Smoothie, Juice Stop, Juice It Up!, and Smoothie King. There is also a section where readers can record their own smoothie recipes and/or make notes for future reference. The goal for this book is to educate the readers about the history of smoothies, and how to make the best tasting smoothies in the world right in the comfort of their own kitchen.
