Review

This is far more than a cookbook and one that belongs on the kitchen counter top of every household concerned with health and getting (and staying) slim. Highly Recommended.

Grady Harp, October 13

Surprisingly, this book covers many tips including the chosen machine as well as the source of getting the ingredients to make healthy smoothies. It's not just the recipes!

From the Author

The Benefits of Healthy Smoothies:

Smoothies, big deal, you say. You've had them before. But, in the past, you've thought of them as a frozen-fruit treat. The whole point with healthy smoothies is to maximize the greens, to add foods to your concoctions that you know are good for you but you perhaps rarely eat. If you need to, start with more fruit and less greens, but work your way up to the maximum green content. Remember, that's the point.

A Recipe Worth Trying:


Chai Choice:
 
  •     31/4 cups water/ice
  •     1 Tbsp. chia seeds
  •     Red leaf lettuce and/or chard leaves (with stems), blended into mixture to 6-cup line
  •     1/2 tsp. stevia
  •     4 black plums, pits cut out
  •     2 bananas, frozen in chunks
  •     3 cups frozen berries
  •     Optional: dash of hot sauce

Blend first 3 ingredients until smooth. Add all other ingredients and blend well. Serve immediately, or refrigerate in glass jars for up to 24 hours and shake well before serving.

More About the Author

Kirk Castle born in the Caribbean in 1974 to a small little known island called Trinidad and Tobago. I primarily enjoy writing Recipe books because I can't seem to ever leave the kitchen (my wife really loves that). I believe that great food can be the topic for any occasion and is the one thing that connects us all.

Customer Reviews

The book is very well laid out, easy to read and has some great tips and information in addition to the recipes.
Kevin Jacobsen
It amazes me how many and different types of recipes I can use to make a smoothie taste this good.

Born in the Caribbean in 1974 on a small little known island called Trinidad and Tobago, Kirk Castle is a chef par excellence - especially when it comes to foods for good health and weight loss, or in other words, miracle smoothies! He is a committed Green smoothie aficionado an din this book he not only provides the 100 healthy smoothie recipes of the title, but he goes far beyond that.

Castle takes the time to explain the concept of green smoothies and why they are beneficial to reducing, keeping weight off, and reducing unhealthy cravings as well as improving skin, hair and energy levels, and boosting immune defenses. But where Castle adds even more to the plethora of books that praise the green smoothie dietary supplement is his taking the time to instruct us hw to grow the vegetables and fruits that go into our smoothies, how to shop for and how to store in the kitchen the things we purchase that are ingredients for smoothies (some secrets he shares here such as placing green bananas in a paper bag with an apple to hasten their ripening, what to store in the fridge and what to store on the counter, etc), sample diet plans and who to incorporate smoothies into your lifestyle. He also lists the superfood additions for smoothies such as acai berries, aloe vera, avocado, chia seed, cayenne pepper, be pollen, raw chocolate, brewer's yeast, flax oil, ginger, coconut oil, sprouts, raw wheat germ, yogurt or kefir and sweeteners such as stevia, agave nectar, honey and maple syrup - with reasons for the benefits of each of this additives.

Then come the recipes - and there are more ideas for excellent varieties of tasty smoothies than you'll find anywhere. This is far more than a cookbook and one that belongs on the kitchen countertop of every household concerned with health and getting (and staying) slim. Highly Recommended. Grady Harp, October 13

Format: Kindle Edition
In the first half of his book "100 Healthy Smoothie Recipes," author Kirk Castle expounds on the benefits of incorporating homemade smoothies into your diet. He emphasizes the use of green leafy vegetables and natural foods in making smoothies. He notes that spinach is especially valuable for its protein and chlorophyll content. Calcium is also a key nutrient found in many greens, such as collards, watercress, and kale. In general, green leafy vegetables are powerhouses of essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, and enzymes.

The author states that the goal of smoothie drinkers should be to consume one quart a day, which should yield fifteen servings of vegetables and fruit. He recommends using more fruit initially, then gradually increasing the amount of green leafy vegetables. The book includes tips on buying and storing produce, even discussing how to grow your own. Organically grown produce is recommended because of the absence of pesticides and other harmful chemicals. The author recommends two specific blender models for their ease of use, effectiveness, and durability.

The second half of the book is devoted to smoothie recipes. For smoothie novices, the author recommends beginning with recipes that use a higher fruit ratio, then transitioning to ones that have a high ratio of green vegetables. Some recipes use artificial sweeteners like stevia, with natural sweeteners like agave nectar and dates being used in other recipes.

Overall, the book is a nice introduction to smoothies, with a section on general information about smoothies, followed by a hundred smoothie recipes that can be made at home.

The book would have benefitted from better editing and proofreading. There are a number of misspellings (such as "lightening" for "lightning") and inconsistencies that should have been corrected before the book was published.

A review copy of the book was provided by the author.

I think the author is probably an informed guy with his heart in the right place, and an experienced smoothie maker with some super recipes.
I agree, however with the review by Amandy about the lack of an index and the poor editing. There were a number of errors!
Did he really mean lemon pee! (yum!) or lemon peel perhaps?
"Maca root is related to turnips and radishes because it's linked by research to endocrine health and a healthy libido"....huh?
The instructions for the mango banana green smoothie include maple syrup...but it's raw honey on the ingredient list.
There are recipes with two ingredients listed as one...randomly weird.
Just to list a few editing misses. So, really, the "professional editors" leave a lot to be desired.
The health information section contains some strong and provocative statements. Thyroid meds make the thyroid worse? Studies to support this statement are....?
Since it's not written by a physician, dietician, or similarly trained individual, one can reasonably expect some footnotes and source pages...but they are presumptuously not included.
The terribly written response to that prior review does not encourage confidence either.
The author does himself a disservice by releasing his book in this condition.

Let me come straight out with it: I am pretty lazy when it comes to cooking. So, whenever I am able to make smoothie recipes instead of standing in the kitchen for 20 minutes up to one hour to get my food ready, I am all for that! A friend of mine told me to check out this book as he is as lazy as I am when it comes to cooking. I gave it a shoot and to my surprised face, this book is not only easy to follow regarding the green smoothies, but the recipes are also healthy!

I mean, think about that: here you have me, a lazy man in the kitchen, who can make green smoothies easy and fast, and the smoothies are also healthy at the same time. If you ask me, I think this is a REAL bargain!! :) This book saves me time and adds years to my lifespan since the recipes are healthy and great if you want to lose weight at the same time you want to enjoy a tasteful green smoothie.

You are doing yourself harm if you do not get this book. This book is amazing and I had to hug my friend of recommending it to me. I know it is silly, but it is true; this book provides you with great healthy green smoothie recipes that you can get done within minute instead of wasting dozens of minutes in the kitchen.

If you are in a hurry and do not want to spend so much time in the kitchen but you still want something healthy to flush down your throat, then this book is definitively the best choice! If I had found this book earlier, I would have bought as Christmas presents to many dear people I know that I want well and to prosper in terms of their physical and mental health! =)

Get this book now and you will never have to spend more than 5 minutes in the kitchen when you want something healthy AND tasty to drink or eat! ^^, Thank so you much!! God bless you!
