Overview

Whether you're looking for the ultimate healthy smoothie, a quick on-the-go breakfast, or a delicious snack or dessert, you'll find something to suit your tastes among the more than 125 recipes in this book. Reliable, test-kitchen-rated recipes using easy-to-find ingredients, tips on equipment, and step-by-step techniques for creating a variety of healthy smoothies, slushes, juices, and ices that don't sacrifice flavor or texture.

  • Cooking Light Chill is a playful book full of smoothies and juices, lighter slushes, and cool ices packed with fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, low-fat dairy and utilizing natural sweeteners.
  • Healthy cool treats that are indeed healthy. Example: Smoothie King's Shape Up Strawberry Smoothie packs in 964 calories, 13 grams of saturated fat, and 125 grams of sugar. Cooking Light's version: 200 calories, 2 grams of saturated fat, and less than 25 grams of sugar from naturally occurring sources like fruit, low-fat dairy, and honey.
  • "To Your Health" tips that share the health-boosting science behind the flavor and Tasty Twist boxes that offer suggestions for varying the flavors.
  • When it comes to fruits and vegetables, volume is a good thing, but getting in all the vegetables and fruits you need each day can be challenging. Cooking Light Chill offers a fun and varied way to help readers meet their "eat more fruits and vegetables" goal.
  • Recipes in Cooking Light Chill support a healthy lifestyle-smoothies can be a quick and refreshing meal (such as Cooking Light's Banana Breakfast Smoothie, full of the protein you need to power your morning). Fresh juices celebrate seasonal fruits and vegetables, are a great pick-me-up after a workout, and give parents options for giving children juice while controlling sugar.
  • Every recipe is professionally developed and rated in our Test Kitchen, and meets Cooking Light's nutritional standards.
