The Blender Girl Smoothies by Tess Masters
Having recently been converted to a fan of green smoothies, I love looking for new smoothie recipes to try. I admit I most often wing it based on what I have available to me at the time and don’t use recipes often. Sometimes it can be tricky to know what flavors will work well together, though, and it is easy to get stuck in a smoothie rut, always making the same couple smoothies again and again.
The Blender Girl Smoothies has 100 smoothie recipes, complete with a full color photo of each one, to suit any palette. I like the inclusion of photos for each of the smoothies, so you can see what the resulting colors and textures will be like before making a recipe. In addition to the recipes the author provides a “smoothie pantry” chapter in which she shares important information and tips on various things you nay wish to add o your smoothies to give then an added boost – for example goji powder, acai, chia seeds etc. There are tips on how to make the best possible smoothies (did you know the order in which ingredients are added to the blender IS important to getting ideal consistency and color?), how to choose and prepare your produce etc.
The book itself is a well-made paperback with nice sturdy semi-glossy pages.
Overall this is a lovely book not just for the recipes but as a basic reference for green smoothies. I would definitely recommend checking it out if you’re interested in trying green smoothies but don’t know where to start, or if you are already a fan and want to add some new recipes to your arsenal.

I received this book from Blogging For Books for this review.
