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.
