Blend The Basics

Today, I’m excited to be participating in an online book launch party for BLEND, a new smoothie recipe e-book written by my friends Faith from An Edible Mosaic and Alyssa from Everyday Maven, which is being released today! BLEND has been a labor of love for those two smoothie-obsessed food bloggers whose common interest in artisanal smoothies and shared desire to elevate smoothie-making has culminated in a collection of beautiful and healthy smoothies.

BLEND actually comes in two e-books. The first e-book is Blend: The Basics, which gives tons of tips and tricks to help you make the most of your smoothies, including how to wash fresh produce, flash-freeze fruit, and make sure your smoothies come together as quickly as possible without sacrificing their artisanal flavor (including info. on how to put together a “smoothie kit”).

BLEND: The Basics is FREE until July 5th – after that, the price goes up to $7.99, or you can purchase both e-books as a set for $14.99 so don’t wait!

Here’s what’s in it…

The second e-book contains the recipes!

BLEND Summer Vol. 1

It’s called Blend: Artisanal Smoothies for Food Lovers, Summer Volume 1, and is a compilation of 25 summer and fall-themed smoothies (there are photos of each smoothie), all made with fresh simple ingredients, that are combined such that they result in a balanced flavor profile. All the recipes are also dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan in most cases, so there’s something for everyone.

Blend: Artisanal Smoothies for Food Lovers, Summer Volume 1 can be purchased for $9.99.

Check out the Table of Contents for all the recipes:

Here’s a sampling of some of the beautiful artisanal smoothies you’ll find in BLEND.

This is a Sweet Green Goddess smoothie packed with goodness – spinach, cucumber, pear, ginger, and flaxseed (recipe below).

My kids loved this Pina Colada smoothie – made with light coconut milk, pineapple, and banana, it tastes like such a treat, yet it’s so good for you!

This Maple Walnut Coffee Smoothie is perfect for a kickstart to your morning – it’s got oats, walnuts and dates in it.

This Almond + Joy smoothie is the featured cover recipe – it sounds as good as the candy bar but is so much better for you. Made with coconut milk, bananas, dates and cocoa, it’s naturally good for you.
