I love juicing and making Smoothies and am a Jason Vale devotee - so I am always on the look out for a new juicing/smoothie book. This book looks great - the photography is very appealing, colourful and appetising. The begining of the book was very informative and helpful from subjects such as how to 'build' your smoothie in the blender, to super food staples and a key to the benifts of the particular recipie such as detox, bone strength or heart health.
The recipies can be a little left of centre however (Chocolate and Cauliflower anyone?) Also, I found I had never heard of some of the ingeridents. For example Sea Buckthorn Juice, Lucuma Powder, Mulberries, Maqui - all of which I am sure I can source, but it makes the cost, and the bother, start to increase. Saying that - there are some very nice recipies in the book that are more than accesible and appetising, for example -
1. Peaches and Cream
2. Grapefruit Pomegranate
3. Strawberry Cucumber
4. Mango Chilli
5. Pineapple Watercress
6. Green Protien
7. Lemon Lime
8. Pumpkin Pie
9. Creamy Orange
10. Chocolate Hazelnut
....and even a smoothie for Dog's!
The author finishes by including a substitution chart (Mulberries = Raisins), Making your own nut and seed milks, weights and measure conversion chart and a smoothie by benifit section.
As per some of my previous reviews, this is one for people who are already well into their healthy eating journey and who are prepared to go the extra mile and have the resources to locate less common ingredients. If you are just starting out with superfoods and juicing I would recomend starting with Jason Vale or Joe Cross.
