Smoothie by the Numbers

Create Your Own Smoothie Recipe

Creating your own orange smoothie recipe is a snap.  Just follow the guidelines below and you'll be in smoothie heaven.

Greens (1 to 2 cups): Spinach and kale may turn your smoothie green, but once they're mixed with fruit, you'll hardly be able to taste them. You can also try adding beet or dandelion greens, sprouts, or arugula.

Fruit (1 to 2 cups): Frozen works best here, but if you use fresh, just add some ice cubes to give it a frosty consistency. I personally like to freeze coconut water in ice cube trays for extra flavor. Mix it up with two to four kinds of fruit such as banana, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, mango, peach, pineapple, pear, cherries, apple, grapes, papaya, oranges, melon, or kiwi.

Thickener (1/4 to 1/2 cup): For the perfectly creamy texture and for added protein and fiber, mix in some Greek yogurt or cottage cheese (3 ounces), nut butter (one tablespoon) or nuts (1/8 cup almonds, walnuts, or cashews), avocado (1/4 fruit), cannelloni beans (1/4 cup), baked sweet potato (1/4 cup), oats (1/4 cup), or soft tofu (1/2 cup).

Liquid (1 to 2 cups): Water or some type of milk (cow, soy, almond, coconut or rice) is always a winner, but you can also experiment with adding green tea; freshly squeezed juice such as carrot, beet, or orange.

Optional extras: Mix in a serving of your favorite protein powder to build muscle and stave off hunger. Or, for added fiber, add flax meal, wheat germ, or chia seeds (1/2 teaspoon). For a health boost, add fish or flaxseed oil or probiotics (recommended dosage). And for extra pizzazz and flavor, add cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, maple syrup, honey, dates, fresh herbs, or fresh ginger (1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon).

History of the Smoothie

A smoothie (alternatively spelled Smoothi, smoothee or smoothy, the name comes from the smooth property of the emulsion) is a blended and sometimes sweetened beverage made from fresh fruit (fruit smoothie), vegetables and in special cases can contain chocolate or peanut butter. In addition to fruit, many smoothies include crushed ice, frozen fruit, honey or contain syrup and ice ingredients. They have a milkshake-like consistency that is thicker than slush drinks. They can also contain milk, yogurt or ice cream. Smoothies are often marketed to health-conscious people, and some restaurants offer add-ins such as soy milkwhey powdergreen tea, herbal supplements, or nutritional supplement mixes.

The electric blender gave birth to the smoothie in the United States. The word "smoothie" was first coined by Mabel Stegner on June 23, 1940 in an article titled "Let the blender do it for you!" published in the New York Herald Tribune(p. 14-15). Concerning ingredients she wrote: "For instance, place a few ounces of milk, fruit juice, tomato juice or any desired liquid in the food container [of the blender]. Add a banana, or strawberries, or pitted cherries, or diced vegetables, Place the container on the base, switch on the electricity and in less than a minute out comes a banana milk 'smoothie,' a fruit nectar, or a raw vegetable cocktail.

The earliest known use of the word "smoothee" also appeared in 1940 and also in connection with the newly commercialized electric blender. That year the Waring Corporation, founded by the popular bandleader Fred Waring, published its first little booklet of recipes titled "Recipes to Make Your Waring-Go-Round," which contained 12 early recipes for "milk smoothees." Waring had hired Mabel Stegner, B.S., a Home Economics Consultant from the University of Wisconsin, to develop the recipes.

Health food stores on the West coast of the United States began selling pureed fruit drinks in the 1930's, based on recipes that originated in Brazil. The 1940s-era Waring Blendor cookbooks published recipes for a "banana smoothie" and a "pineapple smoothee." Dan Titus, the director of The Juice and Smoothie Association, states in his book, Smoothies, The Original Smoothie Book, that "smoothies became popular in the middle 1960s, when there was a resurgence in the United States in macrobiotic vegetarianism."

The first trademark for a fruit slush was in the mid-1970s with the name "California Smoothie", which was marketed by the California Smoothie Company from Paramus, New Jersey. Smoothies from the 1960s and early 1970s were "basically fruit, fruit juice, and ice"; in some cases in the early 1970s, ice milk was also blended in to create the "fruit shake". These shakes were served at local health-food restaurants and at health-food stores alongside tofu, fruits, carob, and other health-oriented foods.
