5.0 out of 5 stars You need this in your life!, 16 April 2014
This review is from: 365 Vegan Smoothies: Boost Your Health With a Rainbow of Fruits and Veggies (Paperback)
Do you love smoothies but feel that a whole book all about them would be superfluous? If the answer is yes then I can tell you I felt that way too, until I discovered this book, now I'm a smoothie master and can make my own wonderful creations. This is sort of an encyclopaedia of smoothies, Kathy, the author breaks down what components to use in your smoothie and suggests flavour pairings I had never thought of before. With the exception of Acai berry, which I can't stand the taste of even in a smoothie, everything I've tried has been delicious, so far I've made about 20. My children and I go through the book together weekly and pick out 2 new flavours to try each week and enjoy a smoothie everyday after school as a snack. I won't go into all of the recipes we've tried as there are too many to mention but I can recommend: 99 raspberry cheesecake shake (my children's favourite) this is made with cashews and tastes like dessert, sweet, creamy and delicious. My favourite is 162 orange walnut cream shake. Since buying this book my children have discovered they like the taste of walnuts which they would never eat before, they used to pick them out of brownies! Smoothies are a great way of sneaking nuts and veggies into children's diets.

Making a smoothie isn't rocket science but it sure does help to have suggestions on what flavours go together to hand. I have made some disastrous concoctions in the past.

Nutritional info is included so you can enjoy these smoothies as part of a calorie controlled diet. There is a chapter on slim down smoothies (less calories, no nuts) if you're that way inclined.

The only negative comment I can make is that there are not 365 combinations in this book, some of the recipes are repetitive, for example, 2 recipes may be almost identical but one uses chia seeds and the other doesn't. That's not a different recipe, that's an optional extra. Don't be put off though, this is really a fantastic book with many wonderful ideas and if you love smoothies, you need this in your life.
