Full of delicious and easy-to-follow recipes plus loads of useful information. (Adventures 2003-01-00)

Keeps the recipes coming until you're serving them for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and medicinal purposes. (Janet Groene Family Motor Coaching 2003-07-00)

I got this from the library first and didn't want to return it after having it for 4 weeks!! This book is great for information about what foods are good for you and which ones aren't. Plenty of smoothies to make that address many health issues and I really like that she has sections on different issues you can have with your body. For example, I had NO idea that soy causes endometriosis to be more painful! Now that I do know, I have cut it all out of my diet and this book is the one that opened my eyes to it. I have made many of the smoothies for myself and my family and we really enjoy them. This is a great book for those who are looking for smoothies to do more then just taste good.

I purchased the smoothie bible after having the juicing bible for a long time. Let me tell you that I LOVE the juicing bible. But after getting the smoothie bible it is almost the exact same thing as the juicing bible...matter of fact, there are the same recipes in both.

But the biggest thing is that I made the Flu Fighter #1 smoothie and myself and my 4yo daughter got SEVERELY ill. I made the recipe using raw elderberries (as mentioned in the book) and I had a severe reaction: vomiting and diarrhea. I read later online that elderberries contain cyanide (that is neutralized when cooked) and should NOT be consumed raw. I would think that Pat Crocker, being an herbalist, should have known or mentioned this somewhere in the book and NOT suggested consuming raw elderberries in her recipe.

Pat Crocker is definitely an author to follow. Her passion for food comes across in every recipe and I love her latest book of Smoothies!

The Smoothies Bible (second edition) contains even more recipes with antioxidant fruits and veggies - which I find extremely important. Not always having time for a proper lunch, I can always depend on being full after a smoothie. Pat says that in as few as one-two smoothies per week, smoothies provide up to three of the five daily servings of fruits and vegetables recommended by nutritional experts. And, with the recipes being so tasty, my family also loves them!

I love the fact that the book also contains tips for a healthy lifestyle, and is a detailed source for anyone who wants to benefit from these wonderfully easy-to-make drinks. Your kids will never look at veggies the same way again!

The smoothie recipes are very interesting and varied. This smoothie recipe cookbook may be the only one you need in your cookbook library. The recipes include more vegetable and fruit combinations than you can imagine. You will not be disappointed!

Pat Crocker's Smoothies Bible is my bible for all things fresh and tasty. This terrific book offers even more antioxidant fruits and veggies into her smoothies recipes. I can even make classic cocktail recipes (with or without the alcohol) with this book - how fun is that!

Smoothies are part of my everyday routine now - either as a breakfast when I'm rushed, as a lunch when I'm stuck in the office, or replenishing after a great workout.

The author also includes a Healthy Body Systems section which explains how the body works at it's best, ingredient profiles, and tips on how to live a better and healthier lifestyle. You want to be happier and healthier? Then pick this book up today!

This book offers tasty, unique recipes and lots of them. It also offers an extensive list of health issues (including ADHD, Anxiety, Endometriosis, Eye Problems, Gout...) paired with a definition, fruit, vegetable and herb recommendations and a list of foods to avoid. Of course each health concern is also paired with a list of smoothies that include beneficial foods.
