Superfood Smoothies: 100 Delicious, Energizing & Nutrient-Dense Recipesby Julie Morris
Synopses & Reviews
Healthy, delicious, portable, and fastandmdash;the smoothie is a simple way for busy parents to feed even the pickiest kids (and adults) a nutritious meal. Parents magazine food editor Jenna Helwig offers 75 colorful, appealing smoothies packed with vitamin- and mineral-rich ingredients and no sugar, with photos throughout.
A smoothie might just be the perfect family food: an easy and delicious way to get kids and adults alike to eat more healthfully. A blessing for busy parents, they are whipped up in minutes, perfectly portable, and appeal to even the pickiest eaters. In Smoothie-Licious, Parents magazine editor Jenna Helwig shows how to make 75 smoothies and whole-fruit juices that are both healthy and delicious. Kids will love the colors and names of Peanut Berry Blast and Double Chocolate; parents will love that they feature nutrient-dense seeds, dark greens, and fresh fruit, and use no refined sugars. Nutrition information accompanies every recipe and notes high sources of vitamins and minerals; icons flag vegan smoothies, and a dessert chapter turns smoothies into fun popsicles, slushes, and shakes.
"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.
