I borrowed this book on Kindla and will go back and buy it. I read through the whole book before attempting my first smoothie. A friend gave me a gift card for Kohl's for Christmas and had already bought a blender. For those that have not bought a blender I do not recommend the one marketed by food network. My first smoothie was the Berry Good Complexion Smoothie because it seemed like it would be an easy one. Right. I decided for the green tea ice I would just make the tea in a measuring cup then I could determine how many cubes would equal 1/2 cup when I filled the ice tray to freeze. That worked well. Word of advice on frozen bananas. It might be better to peel them before you freeze them. Otherwise they have a very good potential to become high speed projectiles while you are trying to cut and peel them frozen. High grade entertainment if you have pets. Threw everything in the blender except greens and pulsed. Blender did not cooperate. Got my trusty bamboo spoon out and pushed the items down. Fruit unscathed and bamboo spoon shortened by 1/4". Dumped everything into a bowl and used a pasty blender to assure it was chopped into small pieces. Put it back in the blender and hit pulse. No joy. Blender, sucks. But I also bought an immersion blender so I broke it out spooned the mixture into the cup added greens and went to town. I didn't exactly end up with a smoothie, more of a chuncky chewy. Didn't care, I was determined at this point.It was pretty good and I probably had a little extra fiber thanks to the bamboo spoon. Even though I had 3 cups of kale in there I wouldn't have noticed if it wasn't a little chewy. So to recap, thrashed the kitchen, ruined my shirt, traumatized the pets and had a delicious smoothie.
My husband got this for me for Christmas at my request as this appeared online to be a very comprehensive book. It includes sections on Detox, Weight loss, stress, energy, and beauty. I was really excited to receive it but that excitement faded fast.Written Content:First of all the author fails to really go into detail in her various sections. For example in her detox section she says you need to detox for 4 continuous days but does not say much more on how to detox. I wanted to know do I drink all green smoothies for all meals or what. I ended up emailing the author for more information and her reply was that I needed to buy her detox book and that it should be for only 1-3 days for detox and all meals and liquid. Hello? So her response to me even contradicted her own advice in this book to do it for 4 days. In addition I bought this book because it had a section on detox and I expected to learn how to detox using her green smoothies in her section in this book on detox. What a huge disappointment. The weight loss section was just as much a joke as far as her "advice" is concerned.Overall the writing really lacked detail and made me feel like she was just trying to fill up pages rather than put forth any real useful information. I would have thought her having been a naturopath she would have had more concrete information to present.On a positive note she does give some useful information on the nutrient contents of some of the ingredients used in the smoothies.The smoothies:A big problem I have is that these make a very large serving. She states that the smoothie is 1 serving yet it fills my blender almost completely. I had a hard time getting through one without feeling overly full.
