What Color Is Your Smoothie?

I love Smoothies. My favorite are the ones with strawberries in them. However, I never realized how many different varieties you can make.

What Color Is Your Smoothie? has more than 300 smoothie recipes that are organized by color for relative vitamin and mineral benefit. What I love about this smoothie cookbook is that you can easily add in fruits and vegetables to your diet and it is so easy! Smoothies are an easy way to maximize your fruit and vegetable consumption.

There are just so many recipes to choose from. You can have everything from a Sweet Berry Swirl to a Sweet Spinach Smoothie to Great Garlic. There is just so many things you can make into a yummy smoothie. It even has a chapter that discusses things you can add in instead of thinks like milk. I also loved the chapter that tells you what the benefits of each food is. I didn’t know that strawberries were packed with vitamin C.

If you like smoothies, then What Color Is Your Smoothie? is a book you need to get your hands on!
