Book Review: Green Smoothies by Fern Green

The last book that I chose to review from Blogging For Books was Green Smoothies, written by Fern Green.

“Kickstart your metabolism, fire up your mind, and promote whole-body health.
Discover the health-boosting benefits of smoothies, juices, tonics, and nut milks. Find the perfect juice to help detoxify your body, enhance your digestion, or invigorate your metabolism.  Energize your day with 66 easy-to-follow, quick, and tasty recipes.  Learn simple ways to incorporate more greens into your diet every day.”

I was very intrigued by the book to begin with as I’ve always liked the thought of having a daily smoothie to boost health.  However, I’ve never really been a fan of making them as I just never know what to put in them, and what benefits certain ingredients have for my body.

The book has 3 main sections: Juices, Smoothies & Shots and Milks.  There are a lot of combinations to make in this book and each one visually shows the reader what they need to include, and what health benefits the drink has.

I haven’t gotten around to making any yet but the ones in this blog post are the ones I’m going to be making first.  I love anything with bananas and berries! 😀

The book also includes a 7-day juice detox, which sounds delicious but I don’t think I would ever try it as I have always been a little dubious of anything that doesn’t let you eat for a while!  I love my food too much 🙂

So now I would really like to know if any of you make juices or smoothies!

What are your favourite ingredients?

Have you ever done a juice detox?

I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.

  1. Never done any detox, and don’t fancy drinking anything green. Love wearing the colour, but somehow drinking it just doesn’t appeal… But I love bananas & all berries!

  2. I’ve always been a little skeptical about the whole smoothie thing–seems like an excellent way to take in LOTS of extra calories without feeling satisfied (that said, a friend of mine with an eating disorder loves them for just that reason). And I wouldn’t juice unless I was going to use the pulp for something else. I guess it depends on how you like to eat; I’d rather have my veg cooked and my fruit for snacks, but I’m not going to say it’s the only way to do things.

Let me know what you think...
