Smoothies! The Original Smoothie Book: Volume 2 is the second book in The Original Series trilogy, which also includes: Smoothies! The Original Smoothie Book: Recipes From the Pros, and Juice! The Original Juicing Book. This book begins with an overview of the whimsical juice and smoothie industry, defining the different kinds of smoothies, and projecting the future of the juice and smoothie bar market. International in scope, the book includes 80 professionally-developed smoothie recipes from companies like: Rubyjuice, Juice Zone of Canada, Viva Juice of Australia, City Blends, and Blendtec. Delectable low-carb, low-sugar, dairy-free soymilk shakes are also included. There is a section detailing products from The Original Series and a section where readers can record their own smoothie recipes and/or make notes for future reference—all with the goal of getting readers educated about smoothies and health using an interactive approach. Features include Web Connect, (a tandem Web site that accompanies the book), where readers can download health-oriented software. This Web site also contains cooking and conversion, and body mass index (BMI) calculators. There is an optional CD-ROM available for readers who want to have the contents of the Web site at their immediate disposal.
