Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Morris, in her rhapsodic introduction, makes it clear from the outset that she's an unabashed smoothie enthusiast, and this collection of 100 smoothies for all occasions makes a persuasive, pro-smoothie argument. Using a base of 15 "superfoods", Morris (Superfood Kitchen) shows readers how they can craft tasty, creamy smoothies to target specific health and dietary needs such as boosting one's immune system, amping up protein, or strengthening bones. Once readers have stocked their pantry, they're free to create a plethora of smoothies for friends, family, and even pets (via a Doggie Smoothie composed of peanut butter, kale, banana, hemp protein powder, and chia seeds). Recipes range from familiar fruit-based smoothies to more exotic combinations such as Banana Romaine, Red Velvet Cake, Apple with Broccoli, and Sea Buckthorn Carrot. There's plenty to like in terms of taste, flavor, and texture, but the book's greatest challenge is connecting readers to ingredients like "cracked wall" algae for chlorella powder, freeze-dried macqui berry powder, and sea buckthorn. Granted, a source list is provided, enabling those with patience and Internet access to get the requisite ingredients, but it's those with a reliable blender and even more reliable (and well stocked) health food store who will get the most out of the book.

Library Journal
According to natural food chef Morris (Superfood Kitchen), blended, plant-based smoothies—which contain more fiber, protein, and fat than pressed juices—can support a healthy lifestyle. With a high-speed blender, readers can try unique combinations like cucumber mint, tahini mulberry, and acai almond. Morris includes resources for the more obscure nutrient-boosting additives (e.g., camu powder, maqui berry powder, chlorophyll drops) and offers plenty of supplementary content, like a health benefit index, an ingredient glossary, and a guide to homemade nut and seed milks. VERDICT Interesting flavors, thoughtful visual design, and a focus on natural foods distinguish this title from others in the genre.

This is exactly the book I was looking for. It has a plethora of creative ideas, food combinations, and nut, seed, and protein-boosting additions that taste great and really amp-up the nutritional value. But mostly I was looking at variety and interesting combinations. Julie Morris brings it. The one thing I would ask her to add is at least approximate caloric, glycemic, and nutritional information. The reader can always look it up, but it would be great to have it already there as a quick reference.

I usually create my own smoothie combinations according to what I have, what I like, and what combinations I think go well together. This book is filled with interesting and unusual combinations that I haven't thought about putting together. I read it through once and now I refer to it by checking with the index to make a smoothie with an ingredient I want to use. The beginning of the book gives interesting information about the ingredients used. Worth having.

Love this book! I bought this book after getting a high power blender. The recipes are delicious, I haven't tried all of them yet but there is a wide variety and I like that she gives the health benefits of each one. It helps if you have access to a health food store to get some of the ingredients.
