Cookbook Giveaway: The Juice Generation

The Juice Generation

The Juice Generation
If you’re trying to squeeze more fruits and veggies into your New Year’s diet, refreshing and healthful homemade juices and smoothies might be just the way to go. In The Juice Generation: 100 Recipes for Fresh Juices and Superfood Smoothies, Eric Helms shares juicing tips and expertise to get you started, along with recipes from his Manhattan juice shop, The Juice Generation.

From years of juice bar experience, Eric knows how to ease the uninitiated into a world where kale, spinach and beets get blended and squeezed into crave-able treats. He organizes this book along a 3-phase “Green Curve,” beginning with simple recipes with sweeter flavor profiles, moving onto more green-heavy advanced recipes and ending with super powerhouse drinks with robust (not sweet) flavors, for the juice pros. Along the way, simple combinations and guidelines let you customize your juices and smoothies to fit your personal taste. No matter where you fall on the “Green Curve” spectrum, you’ll be sure to have fun with your greens and feel good about your food with this book as your guide.

    I add minty basil to give my green juice a kick, the sweet juices I make almost always have banana, pineapple or mango in it.

    I like green juices, with kale and spinach being the main ingredient. I balance with apples, carrots, grapes, and/or strawberries.

    Smoothies are the only consistent way my 9 and 4 year old will eat their fruit! Bananas and berries will always produce smiles.

  22. bjking1 posted 01/15/2014

    kale or spinach, carrots, apple, blueberries, wheat grass. I do make smoothies a lot, too. Basically greek yogurt, a banana, berries, lite coconut milk, ice. Have even made a banana-peanut butter smoothie for breakfast.

  23. Mary Moreira posted 01/15/2014

    I find that it's so much fun to use your imagination and use anything seasonal, along with some steel cut oats, greek yogurt, fresh squeezed citrus of any kind, and a nice fresh leafy green of choice. Love bananas, tropical fruits, fresh berries, sometimes even a nice dark chocolate, and if available, passion or star fruit too. This recipe book look's great! Thank you for the opportunity to enter and maybe win this.

  27. Kimberly posted 01/15/2014
