This thirst-quenching slush is a fun way to use rhubarb. I love to serve it for special get-togethers like a ladies' brunch or holiday meal. The rosy color and tangy flavor of this favorite spring crop come through in every sip.

I first tried this refreshing beverage - with its tasty combination of citrus juices and mashed banana - at a church reception. It's perfect for serving at birthday parties, wedding showers, anniversary dinners and barbecues.

Strawberries, grapes and cantaloupe combine in this delightful drink that takes just seconds to whip up in the blender. "It's a good beverage for diabetics," reports Ruth Andrewson of Leavenworth, Washington.
We offer this fruity beverage to guests to add a festive touch to holiday gatherings. It pours up frothy, then separates into a dark pink base with a light foamy top. A slightly tart drink, it's wonderful with home-baked cookies.
A tantalizing combination of strawberries and orange juice, this smoothie gets its shake-like texture from low-fat buttermilk. “The recipe also works well with other fresh berries,“ says Helene Rock of Los Altos, California.
With a cup of milk and a half cup of yogurt, this smoothie is rich in calcium and makes an excellent choice for breakfast on the run. For added convenience, you can buy mango chunks that are already peeled and chopped.
Few beverages are as simple and refreshing as this one shared by Sybil Brown of Highland, California. Bring her swift slushy specialty to your breakfast table and watch how quickly glasses are raised for seconds.
This thick and creamy smoothie was created for the strawberry lover, but the banana flavor comes through nicely. It's refreshing without being too sweet and makes a fruity mid-morning snack. —Colleen Belbey, Warwick, Rhode Island
