Super Fresh Juices and Smoothies - Nicola Graimes
Whether you're looking for a potent pick-me-up, an effective detoxifier, a post-workout boost, a weight-loss aid or an anti-ageing rejuvenator, this book shows you how to make flavour-packed juices and smoothies with health-enhancing properties. Along with the nutrients gleaned from fresh fruit and vegetables, these great-tasting drinks contain active super-nutrients such as spirulina, wheatgrass, maca, baobab, lacuma, acai berries, chia seeds and raw cacao. To help those unfamiliar with these super-nutrients, an in-depth list of their numerous health benefits, with information on how to use them. There is no comparison between home-produced juices and mass-produced ones - with homemade drinks you can choose your favourite fresh produce, they are additive-free with no added sugar, and they're not pasteurized, a process which can deplete their nutritional status. Alongside over 100 recipes, this book gives practical advice on getting the most from your fresh produce, plus a guide to buying a juicer or blender.
