|Berry citrus blitz smoothie|
I am thus pleased to provide a review of Emily's new book, 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks. The book is delightfully diverse, with recipes such as carrot, apple and lime juice, chocolate mylk, power bar snacks, and the berry citrus blitz smoothie that I chose to test out. What is more, you don't need a juicer to make use of the book. Most of the recipes are made in a blender, whilst the snack items use a food processor.
The berry citrus blitz smoothie seemed like a nice way to offset grey winter weather, and if you live in the southern hemisphere, it will be an equally good match for your sunshine! Emily recommends a mix of berries for the smoothie, and you can use whatever you have to hand. I combined cranberries and raspberries and they tasted wonderful and gave a gorgeous colour to the drink. The smoothie was impressively thick, and I don't usually use oranges in smoothies so appreciated the different flavour and sweetness it provided.
