Smoothies are an easy and delicious way to get the crucial vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants your body needs to function at its best. This 5-ingredient cookbook of smoothies features 100 balanced recipes you can make with just a handful of basic ingredients for quick and healthy options with minimal effort.

Fewer ingredients means less time in the kitchen, less money spent at the store, and simple, satisfying flavors that can improve your weight, digestion, and overall health. You’ll even find tips and tricks for shopping, calculating nutrition information, and more.

WARNING – SPOILERS MAY ENSUE BEYOND THIS POINT – REVIEW BELOW

This book has an amazing repertoire of smoothie options. I was impressed by the diversity of ingredients, and I like that there are so many different flavor profiles. The calorie and nutrition information was super helpful for someone like me, who is on a restricted-calorie diet.

My one warning though is that not every ingredient is going to be readily available at every big box store – so you may have to do a bit of searching to find the more uncommon ingredients like hibiscus flowers or papaya.
