"We have three young children, so we always have fruit juices on hand to experiment with when making smoothies," writes Shonna Thibodeau. The Fort Huachuca, Arizona reader turns cherry juice, fruit and yogurt into this colorful family favorite.
Get Christmas Day off to a refreshing start with this frothy fruit drink. For a festive touch, garnish with a strawberry and a dollop of whipped topping. The pretty pink smoothie make an attractive addition to a yuletide brunch.
"This refreshing shake is wonderful in summer when peaches are in season, but canned or frozen peaches work well, too." says Kara Cook. "I've had several requests for the recipe, and everyone is surprised to discover almond extract is the mystery ingredient," notes the Elk Ridge, Utah cook.
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.
