Format: Hardcover
I love to juice vegetables and fruits and I have a good friend who literally dragged himself off Death's Door by juicing vegetables that allowed him to heal up from an obesity-caused ailment. I can't think of any better endorsement than that. While it is easy to juice fruits and carrots and cucumbers, greens add a lot more to a healthy mixture and also allow you to eat MORE servings of those deep green vegetables as well as change the balance of your body to a more healthful one.

The author gives you advice on how to make green drinks, which do not necessarily require a juicer, in fact, he informs us that blending (breaking down cell walls of the veg) and triturating juicers do a better job and get you more nutrients (one brand of triturating juicer is the Omega, which I always recommend to my friends. It is listed as a "masticating" but it is also called triturating.) So you actually don't have to have a juicer, per se for this book. A blender can work.

The recipes show you how to incorporate arugula (rocket), kale, collards, other greens and make digestible, nutrient filled and tasty smoothies that can add buckets of vegetables with all their vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to your daily diet. I have an issue that I do not eat enough vegetables, especially raw ones as I don't like salads when I go out to eat (bagged salads as served nowadays in most places absolutely bore me, like eating leathery, tasteless shrubbery) and I don't use them up fast enough at home. Juicing and green smoothies are actually for me, convenient as well as healthy.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a professed green smoothie junkie and have been teaching about them for nearly 9 years. I collect information, books and recipes on green drinks. Naturally I had to get this one. I'm not much of an Amazon reviewer but felt compelled to share my thoughts since so many people have brought this book to my attention and have asked me about it.

In a nutshell - this is a beautiful picture book, well presented BUT very thin in content and new information.

I applaud Jason for making such a beautiful book. Anything published about green smoothies to get the info out ranks high in my book. Unfortunately the book reads like a website. In fact, pretty much all of the information and recipes presented in the book can be found on any single reputable website about green smoothies. I found myself thinking... this is identical to x website as well as y website and z and... If I'm going to spend money on a book I want there to be substance - at least something new that I can't easily read on a website.

Another issue I have with the book is that it is clearly geared towards green smoothie beginners, which is great, but many recipes are unusual and targeted for specific tastes. In other words they don't embody the spirit of the beginner to support them with simplicity to actually like drinking greens when they are not used to it. While I do enjoy many of the recipes I would not recommend the majority of them for those new to green drink. It also promises to deliver every health benefit possible about green smoothies but again, gives only a cursory overview of what it's really about.

I wanted new ideas for making green smoothies/juices and purchased this book after reading some of the excerpts online. After receiving it, I found that the introduction part is misleading. The author mentions that people new to green smoothies/drinks favor large amounts of fruit and only a small amount of greens, but that people should transition to a larger greens-to-fruit ratio. He implies that his recipes will have more greens than what beginners like, but they do not. The majority of the recipes are mainly fruit with only a small portion of greens added.

I also thought it was interesting in the introduction that the author mentions adding some pumpkin puree to his smoothies and that he uses it just about every day. This was a new idea for me, so I was hoping he would have many recipes using pumpkin, but there is only one in the book. Does this mean he has the same smoothie every day? So much for wanting variety, I guess.

There are nice pictures in the book, but the recipes have too much fruit and too little greens for me. There is also no nutritional information or serving sizes for the recipes. This may not have been possible since some of the ingredient amounts are vague, but it would have been nice to have.

Bottom line, this is definitely geared toward people new to green smoothies and juices. If this was my first green smoothie/juice book, I may have been happy with it, too. For anyone wanting more smoothie and juice choices, I would rather recommend The Big Book of Juices: More Than 400 Natural Blends for Health and Vitality Every Day by Natalie Savona, either version (with or without pictures). It has many creative ideas for flavor combinations and is the main book I use.
