The book is beautifully illustrated with the most mouthwatering pictures, as we all know we eat with our eyes and something that looks pretty is something we will want to try. The book is divided into sections, there is a section after the introduction which explains how to create a perfect smoothie followed by a section on tools and equipment and a section on tips and tricks.
The first chapter of the book is called Basic recipes, it gives recipes of certain ingredients that are required to be added to other recipes throughout the book.The book follows with a section on simple smoothies, amazing show stopper smoothies, nut milks, juices and finally a section on desserts. Yes I wrote correctly I did mean desserts!! You can find healthy, mouthwatering and droolworthy healthy desserts in this book.
The recipes are easy to follow and most of the ingredients used in the recipes are readily available in the supermarket and specialist health food stores. I found many wonderful recipes that I really want to recreate from the book such as Banana snickers shake, Peanut butter and jam milkshake, Iced almond chai latte, Triple chocolate mint bowl and the Berry Smoothie and salted caramel semifreddo.
These are just a handful of many recipes that I am looking forward to try but I am starting off with the Banana snicker shake which I recreated as per the recipe in the book and it was absolutely delicious. You can see my recipe I made here.
