What is a smoothie anyway?

The Juice and Smoothie Association, (JASA), provides the following as a definition of a smoothie:

Smoothy

Variant(s): or smooth·ie /'smü-[th]E/

Function: noun

Inflected Form(s): plural smooth·ies

Smoothies are a sensation in healthy dining. They are basically a healthy meal in a cup that can also double as a quick snack or dessert. Coupled together with vitamin supplements, "power smoothies" can even offer diet enhancement and dramatic weight control. Smoothies are the new beverage and drinkable meal for the future. Here are a couple of holiday smoothie recipes, which are excerpted from, Smoothies! The Original Smoothie Book: Recipes From the Pros, by Dan Titus.
