Product Description

Juice bars are all the rage, but making the drinks at home is an easy ? and less expensive ? way to sustain a smoothie habit. The Big Book of Juices and Smoothies features 365 healthy, delicious recipes, many of which can be prepared with nothing more than a blender. Each drink is rated for its energy/immune boosting properties, detoxifying qualities, and skin enhancing abilities, while an at-a-glance nutrient profile lists vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. Juice plans, such as a "detox weekend" or an "immune-boosting week" round out the book.

  • Excellent Juicing book in EVERY aspect
    I wont ever need another juicing book (nor do i want one). This book has everything a newcommer to juicing, like myself, or even an experienced juicer could use.
    The recipes aren't too simple to where its like, "Duh, i know you juice lemons to make lemon juice.", but they aren't too complicated either. There is such variety in here that anyone is likely to find something that they would like. Natalie Savona even leaves helpful litle descriptions on each recpie of the juice (or smoothie) and even goes so far as to leave the vitamins in each recipie as well as a rating of 0 to 5 stars of the value it has pertaining to; energy, detoxification, immunity, skin health, and digestive health.
    If you are into to juicing PICK THIS UP. I have read enough crappy reviews of other juicing books to fill this lengthy post up 100 times. Don't waste your money on anything else....more info
  • Love this book!
    What a great little book! As a beginning juicer, this book was exactly what I needed to put our family on the road to better nutrition. With few ingredients and a clear explanation of the benefits of each "concoction", we are thoroughly enjoying our first introduction to the juicing world. Highly recommended for not only its simple recipes but also for the attractive presentation. ...more info
  • Great book but could be a little better
    Definitely a great book for a beginner juicer! You CANNOT imagine how great some juices taste! The recipes are simple and straightforward to make and after you see some of the recipes, you almost feel like trying new ones on your own. For those of you who have never tried anything other than bottled juice, this will definitely be a pleasant change. The only thing I find missing in this book (which is why I gave it 4 stars) is some kind of calorie count for the juices. It is certain that the primary source of calories for all juices (not smoothies) will be only carbs and they may not be too much but it will be definitely a lot easy to add a juice to your diet plan if only you knew how many calories the glass of juice contains. Since there is very little information for each of the juices given in the book (and a lot of empty space around it), it will be a real plus if approximate calorie count is added (since calorie count will depend on the quantity of juice extracted which in turn depends on the size of the fruit or vegetable). But otherwise, definitely recommended! ...more info
  • A great starter book for the beginning juicer
    I recently inherited a lower end store bought juicer ( Juiceman, it is a very nice starter model, btw.). I ordered up a handful of juicing books through my library system and 'The Big Book of Juices & Smoothes' came in first not only to my house but the first for ease of use, layout & design and understanding. It is layed out according to the main product you want to use, say you have a bunch of carrots as the main ingredient, you go to that section. It is all well thought out.

    After just a week of juicing for breakfast and an afternoon snack, I have to say that I am hooked and look forward to trying veggies and fruits of the exotic nature that were eschewed before due to the " How do I prepare this?" factor.

    Natalie Savona has a way of mixing together fruits and veggies that would normally make you think, " Ugh...that sounds awful." but after trying a few root veggies and citrus fruit combos of hers, I've found her little comments about each drink are spot on.

    Under every recipe is a Star Chart that rates the following:
    Energy, Detox, Immuinity, Digestion and Skin. One to Five star rating of what exactly that recipe will help you in whatever area you feel you need. This is very nice as you can flip right through the book when you have a raging cold and look for the 5 Star Ratings on Immunity to see what produce you have on hand to help nourish your body.

    An example of a recipe: #130 Easy Morning

    3 carrots
    1 apple
    1/2 orange
    1 stick of celery
    1/2 inch of ginger root.

    I prefer this now over regular orange or apple juice in the morning. So do my kids, who are 7 and 5. They also enjoy putting the fruit into the juicer and watching it get pulverized. YAY!

    The plus side of juicing is taking out the pulp mush and putting it into your compost. It's a win-win situation, really. Good for you. Good for the Earth. YMMV :)

    I liked this book so much, I am buying it after a very satisfying test drive from the library system. ...more info
  • Love it
    Im not sure Im going to need any other juicing book. I love this one. Easy to use, beautifully designed. Like a picture book for juicers. Why not 5 stars??? Because I wish there were more of these simple, delicious recipies.

    The book is organized VERY well. By fruit/vegetable or you can look by health benefits, and even ailments.

    Get it....more info
  • I'm hooked!
    This is my first juice book and I absolutely love it. I take the book to bed every night and decide what juice to make next morning. I'm so hooked to juicing. The receipts are very simple and easy to read. I've graduated from fruity juice and now ventures to veggie juice. Before the book, I've never had bought kale, beet, guava, or watercress. Not afraid to try any juice in this book. The only downside is a lack of calorie information....more info
  • Try this for 2 weeks
    No one likes to eat vegatables and this is such an easy way to do it! The book shows you certain combinations of vegetables and fruits to detox, cleanse and add energy to your body. I FELT results in 2 days. I bought a juicer at Wal-Mart for $50.00 and left it on the counter and once or twice a day I would juice a meal instead of eating empty caloeries and I felt INSTANT results I had energy and was not slugish in the late afternoon.
    This is also a great way to get kids to get more nutrious things in their body. The drinks look gross sometimes BUT when you follow the combinations on the book the fruits overpower the vegatables in taste and you do not taste them especially the BEETS!
    Anyone who wants to make an easy change in their diet can do this it takes 5 mins to do and clean up and the benefits are so wonderful!...more info
  • Very happy
    I got this book several weeks ago and I love it! The directions are easy to follow and many of the juices just have a couple of ingredients instead of 10 like some of the other books I've had. I also like that it tells you what nutrition that you get out of it so it helps you pick which juice you want that day. I recommend this book for anyone especially if you're just starting out juicing because it explains everything so well....more info
  • A great book
    Just received this book with my new juicer. This book is great. It is well organized, grouping juicer recipes according to primary ingredients. It also gives ratings for each juice recipe according to its potential for boosting immunity, detox, etc. A great book for any juicer, novice or veteran....more info
    This is the best juice book. It is very user friendly and the wide variety of choices is incredible. It is very organized and so far everything I've made I have really liked. I highly recommend it....more info
