I received a copy of the Big Book of Juices & Green Smoothies for review purposes. All opinions are my own. This blog post may contain affiliate links.
Anytime is the perfect time to start a healthy habit…and NOW is a perfect time to start juicing. The summer season is here with all its fresh fruits and veggies just begging to be turned into delicious, healthy juices. Fresh juice is better for you than commercially processed juice because, according to The Juice Lady, it is a “live food” full of “vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and enzymes…and biophotons that revitalize the body.”
I really need a juicer so that I can make fresh juice at home. Any recommendations?
When I received The Juice Lady’s Big Book of Juices & Green Smoothies for review, I was really just looking forward to reading the “Green Smoothies” part. But after I read The Juice Lady’s introduction, I realized that I should start juicing for my family. The Big Book of Juices & Green Smoothies offers more than 400 recipes, so your taste buds will never be bored!
People from all walks of life are looking for proven ways to lose weight, energize, sleep better, strengthen their immune systems, and have brighter skin and a younger appearance. They’re also juicing to help their bodies heal from a variety of ailments. – Cherie Calbom, MS.
Although I was not able to make any of the juices because I do not have a juicer at home, the recipes sound so healthy and tasty that I am seriously looking into buying a juicer. I WAS able to try several of The Juice Lady’s smoothie recipes, yum! The Green Smoothies portion of the book contains more than 100 recipes for green shakes that even picky eaters will enjoy. A few of examples:
- Avocado Cream
- Berry Mania
- Coconut Creamsicle
- Fruit Salsa Smoothie
- Summer Blueberry Breeze
- Tropical Green Smoothie
I have been working my way down the green smoothies list. I love how easy it is to drink my daily recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables when they taste so good.
