Book Review: "The Blender Girl Smoothies" (Tess Masters)

I'd wager that there is almost no health condition in the world that a smoothie could not aid in its being overcome or managed, and almost no diet in existence that the addition of a smoothie could not also be beneficial.

All I have to do to reach that conclusion, indeed, is read a well-researched cookbook like The Blender Girl Smoothies: 100 Gluten-Free, Vegan & Paleo-Friendly Recipes, by Tess Masters. Heck, right there in the book's subtitle, there are even listed three of the most common diets in society today. It doesn't get much more applicable than that.

Let there be no confusion. Masters's work is no ordinary cookbook with dull, everyday recipes for the same old smoothies you can buy pre-made or pre-mixed anywhere (not that you'd want to ... it's always, always better to make and mix your own).

Featuring a fabulous array of fresh, unique recipes with interchangeable add-ins and mix-ins so you can tailor each smoothie to your individual preferences and specific health needs, The Blender Girl Smoothies has a recipe for every single reader, no matter what your dietary restrictions or health goals are.

With unexpected combinations like almond milk, baby spinach, and frozen mango, or red grapefruit and fennel bulb, each of these smoothies is guaranteed to take your meal from mundane to an occasion to which to look forward. And each smoothie recipe also features a gorgeous photograph that will make even the most ... different ... combination of fruits and veggies sound mouth-watering and worth a try.

Another gem in the book are the resources contained in the front and back matter, from insider tips on how to make the best smoothie possible from your available ingredients to an easy-to-follow and -understand in-depth survey of all the different ingredients you can use, including fruits, vegetables, liquids, spices and herbs, and more.

If you're looking for a excellent all-in-one smoothie book to add to your cookbook, I cannot recommend The Blender Girl Smoothies highly enough for your consideration.
