If you want to improve your health without having to swill down unappetizing drinks, the Green Smoothie Revolution: The Radical Leap Towards Natural Health by Victoria Boutenko can solve your problem.

It’s almost impossible to eat most of the raw foods especially kale, mustard greens, spinach, collard greens. Most people would either cook them until there’s hardly any value left in them, or would add high-calorie dressings to make them taste better. In both the cases, you are getting virtually no nutritional benefits. Only the Green Smoothie Revolution book shows you how to add the all-important greens to your diet in an easy and fun way – the good thing is that even your taste buds will love these smoothies.

Meet the authorThe Green Smoothie Revolution is written by Victoria Boutenko, an author, teacher, inventor, researcher, and artist. It was only during 1994, when her whole family got seriously ill, and Victoria turned to alternate healing systems and started her research. This book encompasses everything she learned during her 15-year experience.

What we loved about the book

  • Unlike most other books, the green smoothie revolution has something for everyone. Even if you’re an old juicing hand, you’ll come across some interesting, new facts
  • Though the book includes tons of science, the conversational tone makes it very easy to understand and follow
  • Recipes require nothing outlandish – all you need is water, greens, fruit and a blender
  • The best thing about the book is its comprehensiveness, you won’t be left with any questions after reading it through
  • Addition of fruits and other delicious food items makes your smoothies tasty, without compromising their nutritional value

What we didn’t like

  • Most of the recipes require 5 or even 7 ingredients but variety is supposedly the spice of life!
  • Though there are several recipes included, it’s not a typical recipe book. More than half of the book explains the necessary concepts, just as the name suggests. We would have totally loved if there were a few more green smoothie recipes included, if you want more green smoothie recipe, maybe check out this book:
