My Review:
4 stars

I’ve been trying to find ways to be healthier for a while now, so when I was given the opportunity to review this book, I jumped at the chance. The health benefits of green smoothies have been talked about all over the place lately, and I’ve wanted to try them. Only problem being, that while they were healthy and had all these benefits…they tasted disgusting. Or at least, that’s what I thought. I loved trying out the different smoothies in this book. I’ll admit, a few weren’t quite to my taste (the Minty Avocado, Celery and Apple), but the majority of them were good, and a few have even become favorites of mine (Arugula and Raspberry, Almond and Strawberry). I also like how the nutritional information was provided for every smoothie, making it easier for those tracking their food intake.

All in all, this was a great recipe book, though I would have liked to see more recipes using regular milk instead of almond milk, as (to me at least) the ingredients don’t always work when you switch the type of milk used. I would also have liked to see more recipes using chocolate and berries, as those are ingredients I commonly use in my smoothies. However, this is a great book for the price, and one I would highly recommend.
