Smoothies & Juices: Prevention Healing Kitchen: 100+ Delicious Recipes for Optimal Wellness
I love smoothies year-round; I love the creaminess of smoothies, and bonus if they have chunks of real fruit included! When I saw Smoothies and Juices: 100+ Delicious Recipes for Optimal Wellness, I got excited. I am used to making my smoothies at home, whether it’s because I’m homebound or because buying them at a store can get expensive, so this is not an issue for me.
True to the title, the ingredients in the drinks are minimal and healthy; each one includes at least one fruit, and some have vegetables or coffee. The book has chapters that pertain to different health benefits; balanced gut, glowing skin, healthy heart, strong muscles, and anti-inflammation.
I tried the “Milk” & Honey Smoothie with cucumber, green grapes, celery, honey, and milk; it sounded refreshing, but overall the celery takes over, and I couldn’t get it smooth enough. I also tried the Berry Good Smoothie with strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, honey, and lemon juice; this one was better, but still wasn’t as creamy as I’m used to with smoothies. I am not disappointed by this book, but I would need to tweak some recipes for my taste; others may be just fine.
