Cookbook Review: The Blender Girl Smoothies

I got a copy of Tess Masters' The Blender Girl Smoothies last summer, and now that it's summer again, I'm finding myself breaking it out and making lots of recipes from it. I own a few other smoothie cookbooks, but this one is my favorite because it uses ingredients that are basic, not too expensive, and likely to be in your freezer or summer time produce collection. She offers suggestions for boosters (such as chia seeds) that people may not have on hand but it doesn't feel like the end of the world when you make the smoothies without them. Some of my favorite recipes have been the "apple and mango madness," "cleansing cran-cherry" (great use for collards!), and the "chock-full chocolate surprise." Highly recommended!
