Our Review:
I did not know my kids love smoothies until I made a kale and banana smoothie for my family. Because I was on a strict paleo-diet and my friend Ashley sent me a recipe to make kale and banana smoothie, so I decided to try it out. I quickly learned that even though the recipe only called for 3 ingredients (kale, banana and coconut milk), I really needed to following the recipe because just altering the amount of any one of 3 ingredients would change the taste enough so that my kids would not drink it. However, if made correctly, my kids would drink it happily. From this experience, I learned how important it is to follow the recipes for smoothies exactly as stated. Since I learned that my kids love smoothies and I knew that it was better to follow someone's recipes instead of trying to create my own (and very possibly fail miserably at it), I was excited to check out Smoothies, Smoothies & More Smoothies! In this book, there is a wide variety of smoothie recipes to choose from. They all look so yummy that it's hard not wanting to try all of them at once. So far, I have made more than a dozen different smoothies based on the recipes provided by the book, and all of them have been hits with my family. If you are a smoothie lover, I definitely recommend giving this book a try.
