The beginning of the book is like a tutorial on nutrition. He discusses each of the vitamins and minierals and what each one is good for and what color category it fits into. Chapter 2 is a listing of fruits and vegetables and again what each one is good for. He gives instructions on how to make the perfect smoothie and talks about herbs, and liquids like coconut milk, kefir, water and tea.
Most of the recipes look really yummy, but I have trouble with the vegetable smoothies. I tend to associate them with jucing. Some of the smoothies that did not appeal to me were Sweet Cabbage Collaboration, Blazing Broccholi, Romaine to the Rescue, Coconut Milk and Meat smootie and Mushroom and Cauliflower smoothie. Whatever your taste buds go for you are sure to find a recipe in this book that will please you. This is a great book, in fact it is the best book on the subject of smoothies that I have ever seen. -- Valerie Lull, Author, Ten Healtlhy Teas
Most of the recipes only call for 4 or 5 ingredients and none are esoteric or hard to find. Many call for Almond or Coconut milk - a plus for those who are lactose intolerant. Nutrition information is included.
