5.0 out of 5 stars Smoothies for Juicers 10 Dec 2000
By JK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I owned 'Juicing for Life' long before buying this book. I liked that one, so I bought the smoothie book when it came out. As a believer in the power of juice consumption, I found this book to be an excellent reader also. This is more than another 'fun' smoothie book for those looking for entertainment. It's broken down by chapters into "Energizers", "Power Makers", "Calorie Burners", "Immunizers", etc., in its 11 chapters of recipes. Specific ingredients for specific goals. The explanations of ingredients needs are excellent, as they were in her juicing book.
One caveat: don't expect all the recipes in this book to be low-cal, as they aren't. Tahini and peanut butter are two common ingredients. That may or may not be important to the reader.
Another caveat: depending on where the reader lives, some of the ingredients may be difficult or impossible to buy in smaller areas. E.G. flaxseed and other uncommon oils, algae, and a number of vitamin powders.
For those who want health information as well as smoothie recipes this makes an excellent book for reading, and deciding applicability to one's own health goals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Facts for Fruitful Fun 29 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'm a big smoothie fan, and make them often, so I did not think that a book could teach me much, but this little volume has brought new creativity to smoothie-making. It also contains loads of information about the nutritional and health benefits of fruits and other smoothie ingredients. And it hardly limits the options--everything from strawberries to granola to algae makes its fun and healthy way into these smoothies. The authors divide the book into sections for special interests, such as athletics, immunity, etc., which is also helpful if you have a specific objective in mind for your next smoothie.

2.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointed by the selection for Protein Smoothies 2 Feb 2010
By Melissa W. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My complaint about this book is the comparative value of fat/carbs/protein in just about all of the recipes in this book. I'm a big fan of breakfast smoothies, but I make sure that it always has around 25-35 grams of protein in it. Some of these recipes call for adding a scoop of protein powder into the mix, which will get you to that 25-35 grams, however just about every smoothie calls for so much fruit, that your carb count is upwards of 80-120 grams of carbs...in one meal!! Holy crap. I know you should get 5 servings of fruit a day, but not all in one serving. The sugar rush that I would get if my breakfast had upwards of 100 grams of carbs would be absurd.

I wish there were more recipes that gave a more balanced and delicious approach - like say something simple like a cup of milk, 40 grams of carbs from whatever fruit, be it a half a banana and 20 grams of blueberries, 20 grams of peaches and 20 grams of...oh I don't know, figs...then protein powder, and to get some fat in there, either peanut butter, or almonds or flax. This book contains nothing like that.

How is there even a chapter for athletes (protein-based), yet all of the recipes are carb overload?
