More About the Author

Cherie Calbom is passionate about health and healing because she healed her body from debilitating chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyaligia by designing a her own fresh veggie juice and whole foods diet plan. She was so amazed at how her health turned around that she went to graduate school and earned a Master of Science degree in whole foods nutrition from Bastyr University so that she could be a credible source of information. Before she had graduated from Bastyr, the owners of the Juiceman company hired her to write a little booklet for their juicer. One thing led to another and she became "The Juice Lady." Her first book, Juicing for Life, was an international best-seller. It's now available in her third edition as The Juice Lady's Guide to Juicing for Health. Then she learned about the amazing health benefits of virgin coconut oil. She wrote about it in The Coconut Diet. Cherie is a raw foods chef who makes green smoothies and fresh juice every day for herself and her husband. Even her dog Annie, the Schnauzer, benefits with homemade meals of veggies, meat, and brown rice. You can sign up for Cherie's free monthly newsletter at www.juiceladyinfo.com.

My husband and I have been trying to switch from our unhealthy, sugar-laden, fast-food ridden eating habits to a more organic, whole-food way of eating for a few years now, but it is not an easy thing to do. One of the hardest parts for us was eating 5-8 servings of fruits and veggies everyday, especially when we were trying not to add any processed food to the mix.

Well, this book makes it easy to get all of your vitamins, minerals, protein, and more, with recipes that are really easy to prepare, and if you follow the instructions, really, really delicious. It really only takes a few minutes to throw together a smoothie. Especially if you follow her tips on things you can prepare the night before (for a morning smoothie). Plus, she has tips on freezing smoothies for future enjoyment.

The ingredients are not hard to find, if you actually try. There are things like organic protein powder, flax-seed oil, and rose water in some of the recipes, but if you go into a health food store, or look online (if you don't have a local health food store), they are not difficult to find at all. The author tells you where to find most of the ingredients, anyway. The first time I went out to look for them, I just wrote them all down, and found them all, without any help. It did cost a little money up front to stock up on everything, but it all lasted me quite a while (I still have about half a can of protein powder that I bought a few months ago.) It's kind of like when you run out of all your condiments all at once, and you have to go stock up, but then you have them for a long time.

Not all of the recipes include "exotic" ingredients, though. Some are just strawberries, oranges, yogurt and ice (or something like that). I think there's one that has only grapes and blueberries.

I was so excited when my Smoothie book came in the mail. To my surprize it wasnt what I expected. Some of the ingredients are exotic. Some of the recipes the average person will NOT make. My suggestion is to go to dannon.com or kraft.com and get their recipes they are practical and best of all FREE!

This is my favorite smoothie book. I use it at least three times a week. Cherie Calbom's smoothie recipes are chock filled with healty ingredients and are delicious. She prefaces her recipes with chapters full of information on juicing, fruits and vegetables, and other ingredients. Then it's on to a plethora of smoothie creations bound to please every family member. The only reason I do not rate this book 5 stars is the added cost of purchasing a juicer if you desire to get optimal nutritional value from fruit juices and the cost of some of the suggested supplements. It would also be helpful to have access to a natural foods grocery store. That being said, this smoothie book is a must for those seeking tasty, nutitious drinks.

I actually bought this for my mom about a year ago and she's still whirling up those smoothies. She loves the recipes and has been inspired to try out other concoctions as well. I've tried a few of the drinks and all have been delicious. I really like how they have the different sections like immune booster and the like because it shows you not only a good recipe in that sort of category but also helps you to learn about what foods are particularly helpful in certain ways. Four thumbs up from me and my mom.

This book is an easy and great way to eat healthy. If the idea of starting your day with a powerhouse of health is a smoothie made with, just for example almonds, soy milk,frozen bannana ( peel prior to freezing) and icecubes or prunes, yogurt, oat bran, flaxseed and frozen strawberries appeal to you than this is the book for you. Unbelievably they taste great. No added sugar. We use this book all the time and we find the recipies delicious and easy to make. The beginnning of the book has info on ingredients, supplements and making exhanges. If it is cranberry season or blueberry season or if you have almonds, oatmeal, oatbran, ,soymilk, yogurt, cashews, all kinds of foods, you will find something delicious to make. We always feel so healthy starting our day with these smoothies that lots could be easily considered a cold smooth meal in a glass. The book is packed with information, no glossy pictures and so easy to use. I have to say I think it is the best way to starting your day with a healthy, delicious diet. Shockingly easy and great tasting. Thank-you author. I toast you to for doing this book and to your and our good heath.

This is the BEST Smoothie book I've come across so far! Drinks are quick and easy- with ingredients you can easily find at a Local Supermarket! Calbom breaks all the recipes up into groups: Terrific Health & Healing Smoothies, Workout and Bodybuilding Smoothies, No Fat Weight Loss Smoothies...even Pregnancy Smoothies!
Plenty of variation in the Drinks for a Nice Variety of Drinks. Even the Kids love these drinks!
If you buy only ONE Smoothie Book...Let this be it!

This book accomplished what any good cookbook should: It got ideas flowing, which was followed by action in the kitchen. I don't follow the recipes exactly, but this is a good reference guide on smoothie making. It includes ingredients I normally wouldn't think to add to smoothies, like applesauce or chai and chamomile teas. This smoothie book made me dust off my blender and really get going. Me and my boyfriend have been making smoothies for breakfast or a snack nearly every day. I also like the chapters on smoothie boosters, with explanations of their function. I bought bee pollen and flaxseed oil the other day -- stuff I normally wound't have considered before reading this book. Thanks!
