I liked this book. I liked the simplicity of the cover, and the simplicity of the recipes.
Green Smoothies is a book that contains information not only on smoothies, but also recipes for juicing. It’s described as on Amazon’s website, “A collection of 66 illustrated smoothies, juices, nut milks, and tonics to kick-start metabolism, fire up the mind, and promote whole-body health.”
I think what I liked most of all about the book is the visually pleasing, simple layout of the items needed per juicing/smoothie recipe. It visually showed you what you needed for each, and how many items for each recipe. In addition, it let you know the benefits of each drink. Well, not all the benefits, but some of the highlights.
The beginning of the book talks about the super greens, and gives the benefits of each in the diet. Especially in this method (juicing/smoothing). Then there was instructions on how to detox, at least their best recommended way of doing it.
The book is set up in sections, the first being the juicing, then smoothies and then the nut milks.
My reaction to this book is mixed. I was initially excited, but then uncertain. Only because some many of these items I don’t keep on hand. Juicing is a time consuming process that extracts a small amount of juice. However, I am determined to find a way to start juicing and this book will be the perfect recipe template to start me off.
I received this book from bloggingforbooks.com in exchange for an honest review.
