The Juice Lady’s Big Book of Juices and Green Smoothies
By: Cherie Calbom, MS, CN
Gift Guide Age Recommendation: 13+
A few years ago I tried juicing. I loved it! But, my juicer didn’t make it through one of our many moves and I let my new juicer linger in my Amazon Wish List for far too long. Reading thru The Juice Lady’s Big Book of Juices & Green Smoothies was a great reminder to purchase my new juicer and re-enter the world of juicing. As a novice juicer, this book discussed all the things I needed to know; how juicing is beneficial, the nutritional perks to juicing, how to store homemade juice, how much homemade juice costs (less than a latte), and pages upon pages of recipes are all contained in this fantastic book.
I sampled Calbom’s Green Pina Colada Smoothie. I was skeptical that it would taste anything like a Pina Colada. Yes, it contained coconut, banana and pineapple. But, it also contained spinach. I drank spinach! And, it was delicious! Had someone just rattled off the list of ingredients, I doubt this recipe would have worked. Calbom is very precise in how much of each ingredient to use (this recipe, for instance, called for 6 ice cubes) and her little tidbits of information placed throughout the book really make it one to read and not just skim thru.
Who would like this gift?
This is a great book for the health conscious, the friend or family member who owns a juicer, that friend who always talks about needing to remove toxins from their bodies, or someone looking to increase their consumption of fruits and vegetables. For those looking to give a bigger gift, I would recommend this book be given with a new juicer.
