Amazon.com Review

Twin sisters Mary Corpening Barber and Sara Corpening Whiteford have whipped up yet another yummy title with Super Smoothies, a lusciously illustrated collection of 50 healthy drinks perfect for folks who do not cook but do look after their health. The sisters give explanations of everything--such as how to peel and cut up all the fruits and vegetables involved--while introducing such unfamiliar ingredients as wheat-grass juice and calming kava. The easy-to-follow advice includes all sorts of tips, like using only the ripest seasonal fruit and crushing ice cubes before placing them in the blender. Not only are these smoothies delicious, they're packed with serious nutrients, all assessed by a registered dietitian. Protein Jolt provides 10 grams of protein from milk, yogurt, and tofu, plus 717 milligrams of potassium. Hydro-Tonic, designed to send you into a workout full of energy, meets 95 percent of your daily need for vitamin C and is a mere 112 calories, thanks to its blend of honeydew melon, green grapes, and Gatorade. But these recipes aren't just for health nuts; kids, moms, and guys will find their drinks of choice here, too. School-Bus Breakfast fortifies youngsters with six grams of protein and other important nutrients from yogurt, strawberries, and bananas. Bone Builder gives Mom 283 milligrams of calcium, plus needed magnesium, phosphorous, and vitamin D. Men can choose from various virility and libido builders, while would-be dads can slurp down before intercourse Dr. Shettle's Secret with caffeine, which research shows can increase the odds of producing a son.

This wonderful book is packed with delicious recipes that are good for you too.

Though I pretty much just throw my own smoothies together, it's fun to try different types and there are great ones in here!

A girlfriend of mine owned this book and after flipping through hers, I bought my own and I am very, very happy I did.

This wonderful book is packed with delicious recipes that are good for you too. The book starts out with 10 tips to make your smoothie it's best. Then fruit and vegetable glossaries describe each fruit, its nutritional value and its health benefits. There is also a thorough explanation on fruit and vegetable preparation. Other ingredients used such as peanut butter and milk products as well as additives like wheat grass are also discussed in detail. A seasonal fruit chart and a brief overview of essential nutrients are nice bonuses
There are recipes for almost anything including energy, weight control, PMS, hot flashes, morning sickness, anemia, libido, bone building, stress and even some that boost your immune system when you get sick. There are also special sections for kids and men. Conveniently, each recipe contains complete nutritional information.
My favorite recipes are the constants craving, grape escape and protein jolt. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to make quick, easy, nutritious meals without cooking.

I bought my blender last year and used it exactly once, before I bought this book, that is. Now with a whole collection of delicious and nutricious blender drinks to make, hardly a day goes by that the blender doesn't get a workout! The concept of smoothies is ideal for a single working person with little time to cook dinner because of long hours. And the best thing is it is healthy!

Being a bonafide smoothie addict, I can say that this is the best book of smoothie recipes I've ever run across. As a small size smoothie at the mall costs $2.25, this book pays for itself in no time at all and is worth every cent. I loved the breakdown of nutritional values which is very helpful for anyone watching their calorie intake. The variety is spectacular with inclusion of even vegetable recipes. If you're looking for a good change of pace in your diet, definitely try out these delicious recipes. You won't be disappointed!

I absolutely LOVE this book! I think the receipes are creative and fun with easy to find ingredients. The book starts with descriptions of each ingredient and its' health benefits and goes into preparation techniques and even explains the job of 'binders' in smoothies. I really love the way each smoothie has a 'job'; they list smoothies for PMS, for extra energy, for weight-loss, morning sickness, snacking, and for kids. The book also has receipes for specific male issues, like virility.
I think this is the best beginner smoothie book on the market. The receipes go from basic banana-strawberry to exotic tomato and avacado smoothies. And each receipe lists detailed nutritional information, which is great if you're trying to cut back on fats or carbs, for example.
This book proves smoothies aren't just a treat anymore, they can be a beautiful addition to a healthy diet as well as curing what ails you! Try the "Constant Craving" apple smoothie- it's my favorite.
Buy it!! Trust me, you won't regret it!!

The authors' write, "It's hard to imagine what smoothies would be without bananas." I say "TRY!" Nearly half the 50 recipies in the book have banana in them, so unless you are a major banana fan (which clearly, I am not), I would pass on this one. I'm going to.

Nice pictures and solid smoothies information. I've used some of these smoothies so far (I tend to stick with my favorites instead of experimenting) and I use them with the Ultimate Diet Guide The Ultimate Diet Guide - For Busy Women! No Starving, No Food Restrictions, No Gym Workouts Required! and I've been losing a ton of weight over the past 3 weeks combining that diet with 1-2 smoothies a day.

I really can't complain about the content of this book, I find most of the smoothies to be yummy and refreshing. However, I wanted one smoothie book to use with my blender and this isn't the only book I ended up getting. Plus, I've had this book for only about three months and I'm already getting tired of thumbing through it and seeing the same stuff. I really wish I had purchased a book that focused more on the quantity of recipes and less on the pictures of the recipes it did contain within (as this book does). I ended up purchasing Smoothies, Shakes & Frappes ISBN 1579121721 for about half the price and, with no disrespect to these authors, found this to be a better choice if it really is quantity of smoothie and shake recipes you are looking for.
