SuperFoods & Super Smoothies
The focus on this book of smoothies is on superfoods. Keep that in mind before you buy. If you have no interest in spending some time hunting down special ingredients like cocoa nips, hemp seeds, and acai powder, this probably isn’t for you.
If on the other hand you realize the huge impact these super foods can have on your health and your well-being and you don’t mind ordering online, then this is the book to get. You’ll have fun exploring the 100 smoothie recipes and will quickly find new favorites.
I amazed at this book of awesome recipes. Not only are the smoothie recipes REALLY TASTY, but they are so creative and very thoughtfully concocted to maximize health, flavor, and texture. My favorites that I’ve tried so far are: cranberry orange (using frozen whole cranberries and OJ), acai pumpkin (yum! creative use for canned pumpkin puree), and cacao cream. There are so many more I can’t wait to try!
I first started trying to turn around my health about a year ago by making green smoothies in my blender, mixing frozen blueberries, banana, chia seeds, kale and almond milk every morning for breakfast. I have since upgraded to a vitamix, which makes it easier and more enjoyable to blend my daily smoothie! This book is helping me expand my smoothie repetoire so I can never, ever be bored with my smoothie! – Mary
In addition to providing you with tested and approved recipes of smoothies that work out well and are good for you, you also get a lot of information from the basics of smoothie makings to info on the various super foods and their impact on your health. All in all this is a great book to have in your kitchen. Browse through it for healthy eating inspiration and come back to the delicious recipes in the Superfood Smoothie Cookbook again and again.

I love that Simple Green Smoothies approach is a lifestyle change of one green smoothie a day. They even offer a 10-day green smoothie kick-start guide in the book with shopping lists included!
On reviewer said:
Recently got a Vitamix Blender with the intention of making a green smoothie everyday to clean up my diet a bit (have being doing well for over a month). Looked at a bunch of green smoothie books and saw pretty much the same recipes in most of them. What set the Simple Green Smoothies recipes book apart from the rest was its layout and basic smoothie 3-column formulas but, mostly the personal stories of the two authors. Found those pretty motivational. – Zunderzee

Don’t skip breakfast and set yourself up for overeating at lunch time. Research shows that people who skip breakfast in an effort to lose weight, end up eating more and consuming more calories overall than those who eat a healthy breakfast.
When time is short and you want the biggest nutritional bang for your buck, look no further than a delicious breakfast smoothie. When it comes to packing your lunch, it doesn’t get much easier than mixing up a green smoothie. Think of it as a drinkable salad that tastes great.
I bought this Kindle copy to lose weight. Instead of buying a food supplement that replaces a meal, I thought this recipe book would be better. It has been a couple of days and I already lost 5 pounds. The book is more than a recipe book. For example the introduction educates the reader how you can cure many ailments with a fruit and vegetable smoothie. I had no idea that these drinks could help with anti-aging, diabetes control, healthy skin, satisfy as a meal replacement and help out with weigh loss. I didn’t even know what a smoothie was, until I read this book. They go into when the best time to have one of these drinks would be – breakfast. My favorite drinks were the pumpkin and strawberry banana smoothies. Instead of using milk, I can substitute almond milk or bananas. The other thing about the book is that it has a good and bad section on the drinks you are making. I’ll enjoy this for some time to come. – Christian Anderson
Work your way through this book of 150 smoothies and find your own favorites. Your body and your scale will thank you.
