Smoothies are often associated with breakfast, but they actually can be enjoyed all day long.
Smoothies have been around since the 1920s, when the first blender was invented by Stephen Poplawski. In 1939, the Waring blender company designed a pamphlet that came with the appliance that included fruit-based drinks.
Smoothies can include a variety of ingredients and serve various purposes. This recipe for a "Ginger Papaya Smoothie" from "Super Smoothies" (Crestline) by Ellen Brown employs ginger, which can help overcome nausea and other stomach issues. Yields 4 1-cup servings
