Review

I have at least one, sometimes even two, smoothies per day and I love them! It is the most effective way to get nutrition into the body without taxing it during the assimilation. Being the food is in liquid state, the body doesn't have to break down solids. And, actually having only smoothies one day a week is a gift to the digestive system. Smoothies are great for detoxing the body as well as part of a healing process for ailments. For the purpose of the review we are asked to test three recipes. Of course, I looked for combinations I've never used before. The first one I made was Corn Chowder. Yes, corn chowder. Keep in mind that smoothies don't necessarily have to be made with raw fruit. The chowder recipe calls for the normal ingredients: broth, corn kernels, onion, sage, thyme, and milkcream. (I used coconut milk instead.) After cooking, this combination is blended and can be served hot or cold. The combination of sage and thyme gave a great flavor. The second recipe I tested was
Almond Date. It is suggested to use soy or almond milk but I used coconut milk and added dates, almonds, cream cheese, banana, cinnamon and nutmeg. The end result was delicious!The third recipe I tested was Ice Green Goddess. The combination of coconut milk, lime juice, kiwi fruit, mint leaves and 2 scoops of agave sweetened vanilla coconut ice cream made the best ever combination. It's one of those that you say wow after the first sip. Aside from recipes for smoothies, The Smoothies Bible, Second Edition has a huge section on body systems and health conditions that smoothies are indicated for. Pat Crocker covers the best foods for blending and their actions, uses, how to buystore, and corresponding recipes. As well, Crocker has a section on herbs -- their use, properties, and healing powers. This one of the best smoothie books I've ever seen and it is certainly a keeper. I would honestly say that anyone just venturing into the world of smoothies for health reasons, The Smoothie Bible,
Second Edition is your first option. (Irene Watson Reader Views 2011-02-14)

This is an awesome book, full of valuable information about health conditions and what foods are good for a specific condition so that we'll know what to add to a smoothie. There is also a section on vegetables and fruits and what each does for our system. The recipes are easy to read and are very easy to follow. I use water or green tea in place of fruit juices so the flavour is not as "rich" when using juice, which complements the recipes. All in all, a great book of knowledge.

My biggest disappointment of this book was the fact that it did not include calories and nutritional contents. I count my calories so this is very important. I think this would be important to anyone who isn't calorie conscious as well.

This book is even more than I expected it to be! I am a smoothie lover but can't always perfect my mixtures. This book has so much variety, attends to your every want/need. It is my new holy grail for smoothie! No crazy ingredients like another smoothie book I have.

LOVE THIS BOOK.

So far, I've only made the fruit-based smoothies, but they're all great. Looking forward to expanding into the veggie ones.

Nothing more to add on to the rest of the reviews. It's a great book. So many recipes where you can use so many types of fruits, vegetables, and herbs, in so many different combinations. The best part is that you use a blender, so it's quick and easy to clean compared to when you use a juicer.
