Ever since I saw Montel Williams' special on the Green Smoothie (and his amazing food processor), I've been hooked! Smoothies are not only healthy, but they taste great and you just feel so good after drinking them, so it was with a glad heart that I downloaded this awesome ebook! I really LOVED the sheer variety of smoothie recipes, all of which could be made green with just an infusion of spinach! This book also gave me some wonderful tips on how to jazz up my own smoothies, including adding sea salt for mineral content and taste--a great idea I'm trying in my breakfast smoothies ASAP. The author also gave me ideas for ingredients I'd never considered, as my smoothie technique has basically until this point been ″throw a bunch of fruit in a blender and hope it comes out okay.″ The book not only gives you clear instructions for how to blend the ingredients most successfully (no more shoving fruit down with a spoon and waiting as the blender hacks and wheezes in desperation), but it also has nutritional information for all recipes, so you know exactly what health benefits you're getting. Recipes are even further subdivided, including recipes for children and vegetable blend smoothies.
Off the topic of smoothies (which was the primary reason I picked up the book), I also found the variety of other healthy snacks to be great ideas to try making at home! I'm going to try making my own energy bars next, something that will save me money and also allow me to avoid processing, something that is very important to me.
In short, this is an excellent resource for anyone who is looking for healthy smoothie recipes and snacks to jazz up (and health up) their lives! I recommend this book very highly!
