A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Loving the layout of this book, I found it very visually pleasing as well as choke full of delicious and creative recipes. Mixing both fruits and vegetables, both green and colorful, into juices and smoothies, I thought this book provided many new ideas for combining good-for-me goodness. Muscle and bone building, immunizing, skin enhancing…only some of the many benefits gained from the included drinks with Bok Choy, dandelions, apples, blueberries and raspberries being some of the tasty ingredients. As a fan of smoothies already, this book is perfect. Would even make a great gift accompanied by a blender or juicer for that New Year’s resolution.  Excellent!

RATING:
5 (out of 5) pennies
