The Smoothie Recipes
The smoothie recipes are broken up into four chapters:
- Light and Fruity Smoothies

- Exotic Smoothies with complex flavor combinations
- Dessert Smoothies
There is a stunning photo and double-page spread for each smoothie with recipe summaries listing the health benefits, and special icons to flag specific needs - weight loss, immunity, detox, energy, inflammation, protein, alkalinity, unsweetened, and nuts (for allergies).
Ingredients lists include both imperial and metric measurements, and there is also a full nutritional analysis for each smoothie providing calories, fat, sodium, carbs, fiber, sugar, protein, calcium, and iron levels per serving.
All smoothies make two 16-ounce glasses and are designed to serve 2 people.

Each Smoothie has 3 Optional Boosters
Every smoothie has three optional boosters (like chia seeds, ginger, coconut oil, wheatgrass, superfood powders) that allow you to ramp up flavor, nutritional value, or both.

The benefit or flavor effect of each smoothie booster is called out in the head notes for each recipe.
