One of the hardest parts of being a new vegan (or even an old seasoned vegan) is trying to keep up with all the new products out there. I must have spent over $50 looking for the "right" vegan cheese my first year being a vegan and I have over 50 vegan/vegetarian cookbooks in my arsenal but not all the recipes are the greatest. I’m the first born so I’m used to being a Guinea Pig and now I’m your Vegan Guinea Pig. So here are my recommendations and critiques. Let me know what you think!

Superfood Smoothie Recipes

So you've read the review of Superfood Smoothies but you just aren't sure you're going to love it? Try these  two sweet yet healthy treats and you'll be diving, mouth first, into this book!

Mint Chip
Tucked beneath a very convincing ice cream-like flavor, a wealth of beneficial spinach awaits you in
this smoothie. It’s so good it almost makes a person wonder why spinach isn’t used in all minty treats.
I love how the cacao nibs provide a bit of dark-chocolate crunch without being overpowering.

Makes 2 18 -ounce servings

2 cups frozen spinach
2 cups frozen bananas
1⁄4 cup raw cashews
3 tablespoons cacao nibs
2 tablespoons (packed) fresh mint leaves, minced
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups rice milk (original variety)
1⁄2 cup coconut water
sweetener, to taste (optional)

Blend all the ingredients together until smooth. Taste, and sweeten
as desired.

Superfood Boost:
Add 1/4 teaspoon chlorella (or to taste).

Maqui Banana
Experience the profound beauty of delicious simplicity.
Makes 2 14 -ounce servings

3 frozen bananas
2 ¼ cup coconut milk (boxedvariety)
1 tablespoon maqui berry powder
sweetener, to taste (optional)

Blend together all the ingredients until smooth. Taste, and sweeten
if desired.

Superfood Boost:
Add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds.
