"The debut cookbook from the powerhouse blogger behind theblendergirl.com, featuring 100 gluten-free, vegan recipes for smoothies, meals, and more made quickly and easily in a blender. What's your perfect blend? On her wildly popular recipe blog, Tess Masters--aka, The Blender Girl--shares easy plant-based recipes that anyone can whip up fast in a blender. Tess's lively, down-to-earth approach has attracted legions of fans looking for quick and fun ways to prepare healthy food. In The Blender Girl, Tess's much-anticipated debut cookbook, she offers 100 whole-food recipes that are gluten-free and vegan, and rely on natural flavors and sweeteners. Many are also raw and nut-, soy-, corn-, and sugar-free. Smoothies, soups, and spreads are a given in a blender cookbook, but this surprisingly versatile collection also includes appetizers, salads, and main dishes with a blended component, like Fresh Spring Rolls with Orange-Almond Sauce, Twisted Caesar Pleaser, Spicy Chickpea Burgers with Portobello Buns and Greens, and I-Love-Veggies! Bake. And even though many of Tess's smoothies and shakes taste like dessert--Apple Pie in a Glass, Raspberry-Lemon Cheesecake, or Tastes-Like-Ice-Cream Kale, anyone? Her actual desserts are out-of this-world good, from Chocolate-Chile Banana Spilly to Flourless Triple-Pecan Mousse Pie and Chai Rice Pudding. Best of all, every recipe can easily be adjusted to your personal taste: add an extra squeeze of this, another handful of that, or leave something out altogether--these dishes are super forgiving, so you can't mess them up. Details on the benefits of soaking, sprouting, and dehydrating; proper food combining; and eating raw, probiotic-rich, and alkaline ingredients round out this nutrient-dense guide. But you don't have to understand the science of good nutrition to run with The Blender Girl--all you need is a blender and a sense of adventure. So dust off your machine and get ready to find your perfect blend"-- Provided by publisher.

I own this book and it's one of my most common go-to books. There are a lot of yummy recipes in it, from "mango fire and ice" frozen desert to a pear-walnut-raspberry salad. One word of warning is that a lot of these recipes use soy, avocados and bananas, so if you're trying to avoid those foods you'll have to pick through the recipes a bit.

I really liked this book so much I may buy it! I appreciated the basic background approach given for blending and the "how to" build your blended drink. All the information about healthy foods was good. The recipes had options and were very flexible. Even the "tastes like ice-cream kale " was good. "Apple pie in a glass" was OK. EXCELLENT BOOK.
