About the Author

Cherie Calbom is known to millions for her frequent appearances on the QVC shopping channel as well as her infomercials with Jay Kordich and George Foreman

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.

I suppose that this book is for people who are already into whole foods. To people who aren't accustomed to such foods might read ingredients like Lecithin granules, Asorbic Acid, Sprilla and go "What the heck is that?" But, I'm weird, and I already have all that stuff. :)
It's also for people who have a good blender (obviously) and preferably a juicer, though store bought juices are fine. You just get more health benefits from fresh juices. And I'm glad the Author does understand that not everyone has a juicer.

That being said though, I've always enjoyed making healthful and delicious juices and smoothies. But the few other books I have, mainly the juice books, the recipes are a bit too fancy for me. Not to mention expensive. Great for entertaining guests I suppose, but just for me? Nah. Smoothies, for the most part I've just made up on my own. But realizing how many calories I was consuming with them woke me up a bit. I LOVE that this book has not only very yummy smoothies, but nutritional info for each one! I also love that they are all designed for specific health needs. Losing weight, Working out, Pregnancy, Boosting Immunity, etc. It also has a section for kids. What a wonderful way to get more healthy foods in my son's belly without his knowing it because they taste so damn awesome!

I love this book. And even though, as a few have complained, there are no pictures (I always look for cook books with beautiful photos) - this is the only Smoothie Book I need.

A side note about the cost of smoothies and juicing - I think this book saves you money. It has you making ice cubes from strong teas or fresh juices to add into future smoothies. So in my freezer, I have it stocked with labeled freezer bags of Beet Juice, Watermelon Carrot Juice, Coconut Milk.

Unless you are near a health food store, forget this book. for example some of the ingredients include tahini,stewed rhubarb,carob powder, gingerroot, pickled plums among others. The recipes aren't simple. The 500 smoothie book is far better and much simpler. I wasn't expecting to need a culinary degree to make smoothies. Was very disappointed in this book. The book I got was the older one with 101 recipes. Maybe this new one is better but again I would try something else if you want simple and fast.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book based on the five star reviews. I was choosing between 500 Smoothie Recipes and the "Ultimate Smoothie Book". Now, the book has arrived, and I'm now sorry I bought it. Yes, the book has a few excellent pointers, but the quality and selection of the recipes were unsatisfying.

The positives of this book is that detailed nutritional and caloric information is included with each recipe. There is also a section that teaches you how to choose organic fruits and vegetables in season, juicing and selecting a proper juicer. You can also learn how to make almond milk to use in other basic recipes (this is a plus for people on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, where almonds are a necessity, and where store-bought almond milk is off limits due to added sugars). There is also a whole section dedicated to making coconut smoothies (including coconut oil/milk,etc; for health benefits), and coffee-break shakes, and smoothie pick-me-uppers. There are also shakes for weight loss, pregnancy, healing and body building.

I have many problems with this book. First, I agree with another reader who criticized the lack of pictures in the book. Yes, I do own excellent recipe books without pictures like "The Joy of Cooking" and "Nourishing Traditions". But, in a smoothie book -- where results can be (and often are) inconsistent (take green smoothies for example) -- you want to know what the end product will look like before spending your hard-earned money to make one.

Second, another concern, there are only five total Basic Smoothie recipes.

Third, some of the recipes in the book have NOTHING to do with smoothies. There is a section dedicated to...(drumroll) TOPPINGS. Oooookay.

In an effort to add more fruits and vegetables into our diet, I've been looking at smoothie recipes. My chiropractors really recommend them as an energizing breakfast, packed with nutrition. I think this can be true if the smoothie recipe focuses on healthy ingredients without added sweeteners.

The Ultimate Smoothie Book contains a lot of great information regarding the best ingredients to use in smoothies and what nutritional benefits each food adds. It is well-organized with informational sections before you actually get to the smoothie recipes. The smoothie recipes are also organized into categories which makes it easy to find the type of smoothie you are looking for. I love that each smoothie recipe also has a nutritional breakdown per serving.

I was a bit thrown off by the book beginning with a section on juicing. I wasn't looking for a book on juicing - I was looking for smoothies! Calbom puts a great emphasis on using fresh fruit and vegetable juices in her recipes, which would unfortunately necessitate another piece of kitchen equipment which I am not interested in purchasing at this time. Calbom also uses ice frequently in her smoothie recipes and claims that a regular blender will be able to handle this. Maybe some blenders can handle ice well enough to make a truly smooth smoothie but I know mine cannot.

The majority of the recipes included in The Ultimate Smoothie Book look really tasty. Unfortunately, I've decided that I'm going to need to wait until I have a better blender and warmer weather to actually try them out. Smoothies in the middle of winter just don't sound very appealing!
