I have been in contact with the author for a few years now, and on a personal level - she is the REAL DEAL!!!! My son was dx with cancer at the age of 5 in 2007 - after all treatment, he was having dietary issues along with being grossly underweight, as well as losing his taste for certain foods which provide essential nutrition. Well, I happened upon Tess Masters and without hesitation she not only responded via mail, she personally called me and gave me some of the best advise. To date, my son is 6 years cancer free - and still has no idea that we are sneaking veggies into a lot of his food via the Vitamix and Tess' recipes!!! I'm looking forward to trying many more recipes in this book. Thanks Tess xxxxx

Tess Masters delivers an incredible, inspiring book that contains a variety of mouth-watering recipes, helpful tips on health advice, and much more. The Introduction begins with her own personal story of her journey of discovery on flexibility, a key factor to healthy living. This book is packed with information on proper, healthy diets and the golden key to success in losing weight, and staying healthy.

The author includes delicious recipes on:Appetizers; Snacks; Salads; Main Dishes; Smoothies; Dressings; and more. Tess Masters discusses the power of whole foods, balance, choosing the right blender, and other important information. We learn how to Soak, Chop, Mince, and Grate. The author also discusses why the Spatula is Queen, Types of blenders and performance, raw power, and the colorful photos are inviting.

There is a section on Increased Energy, Prevention Of Disease, and discussions on the well-being of a healthy life. We also learn about Superfoods, Vitamins, minerals, and Antitoxidants. There is interesting information on soaking nuts, cheat charts, how to make homemade milk, and how to Store and Freeze.

The author includes facts on Vegetables, Fruits, and Sweeteners, such as Stevia. She begins Recipes with delicious Smoothies and Shakes such as: Raspberry Lemon Cheesecake, Pineapple Salsa, Creamy Orange C, and other yummy recipes that make your mouth water. We made thus far, the Apple Pie In A Glass And the Chock-Full Chocolate Surprise, both were delicious, and my daughter requested those again. In addition, there is information on:Juicing Versus Blending, Nuts and Seeds, Dips and Spreads, and more.

The desserts are amazing, and we had fun making the Ginger-Apple Pear Butter, which we love on toast.

This book, and truthfully Tess Masters, the beautiful chef and author, have honestly changed my life. I had the luxury of discovering Tess and her fabulous website [...] two years ago this month. I fell immediately in love, went out and bought a Vitamix based on her inspiring recipes and personal encouragement, and off I went into the kitchen. I eat better, I sleep better, my kids are healthier, my family and I ALL have more energy. We get sick less often. We are more FULL OF LIFE from following the recipes on her website and in this fantastic book!

Have you seen the movie "Julie and Julia" about a young writer attempting to test each and every one of Julia Child's recipes in her first cookbook? Well, that's me and this book (and website, truth be known, but that's a lot of material!) I absolutely love every single Tess Masters recipe I have ever tried, and interestingly, I don't even tweak them. I tweak EVERY recipe, honestly, but not these - they're PERFECT the way they are.

My kids are now slurping all things raw and full of nutrients: hemp seeds, chia seeds, almond milk and kale, gazpacho and cauliflower soup, among other things. They eat flax seeds, coconut and more - sometimes knowingly, sometimes - HA - not! That's the beauty of some of these recipes! You can honestly sneak in the healthy stuff and since the recipes are THAT GOOD the kids don't ask too many questions! We served the "Spicy Gazpacho Grab" and the ridiculously perfect "Pineapple Vanilla Sangria" at a fairly large party one evening and EVERYONE (not the kids) asked for the recipes. I told them all to go buy the book!

There are smoothies, dips, spreads, pancakes, soups, desserts, salads and so much more - but it's not just the recipes that make this book seriously amazing.

Every now and again you come across a cookbook that is both inspiring and exciting. The Blender Girl, of the eponymous blog, has created such a cookbook. It is filled with vibrant color, brilliant flavors, and tantalizing combinations. The recipes are packed with healthy ingredients, and each involves a high powered blender in the process of creating the masterpieces.

Tess Masters takes the time to walk readers through the ingredients and how to make the most of your blender (on any budget). It is in the recipes, however, that Masters (a.k.a. The Blender Girl) really shines. The recipes highlight raw and superfoods and are all vegan with a number of gluten-free options. With creations like Raspberry-Lemon Cheesecake Smoothie, Apple Pie in a Glass Smoothie, Artichoke and White Bean Dip, and Awesome Almond Crackers, there are multiple ways to start off a snack session. Amazing options like Basic Creamy Cheeze, Pine Nut “Parmesan:, and Macadamia “Feta” are great accompaniments to dozens of entrees, and recipes like Green Smoothie Fruit Leathers, Glowing Greek Salad, Mushroom Magic Soup, Savory, Sweet and Spicy Crepes, and Baked Caramel Apples round out a wonderful selection. The ingredients are readily available and the book is packed with diverse flavors, all of them getting a special touch with the help of the blender.

The sauces, soups, dressings, and toppings made with the help of a blender and some great recipes are all consistently tasty and a great way to expand the range of your Vitamix beyond just smoothies. Mix on!
