We were excited to read Green Smoothies by Fern Green since we’re avid juicer and smoothie maker.  The book has three recipe sections for juices, smoothies, and nut milk.  Overall it’s a very comprehensive book with tips on choosing equipment, ingredients, and how to do a detox with a 7-day detox plan.  My favorite part of this book is the layout of each recipe with a picture of all the ingredients included so you know exactly what to shop for. With regard to recipe, I tried a few of the green juices and didn’t like them too much.  They were a bit strong in taste and leaned toward savory instead of sweet.  On the other hand, the smoothies were much more delicious.  I’m used to incorporating spinach and kale in my smoothies, but adding bok choy, cabbage, fennel, leek, and watercress was a new concept.  The strong taste of those veggies needed some adjustment so I added half of the quantity in the smoothies.  Overall, Green Smoothies is a wonderful start for those interested in making juices, smoothies, and nut milk.
