Boost Your Energy With Super-Charged Smoothies!

As soon as the warm weather arrives, I cannot get enough of smoothies.

They are a delicious, filling way to not only cool down, but max out on fruits and vegetables.

I like them because it's an easy way to consume lots of fruit without having to do a lot of prep.

But buying them on the go can be awfully expensive. Sometimes it's almost $7 for just one.

Better to make them at home.

That's why you should get yourself a copy of Super-Charged Smoothies: More Than 60 Recipes for Energizing Smoothies.

And you need a guide, because although I'm sure you can make a basic blend of fruit, juice and ice, you'll want to know how to maximize your smoothies with "the nutrient-packed, disease-fighting, life-changing superfoods that promote energy and vitality," as authors (and twin sisters!) Mary Corpening Barber and Sara Corpening Whiteford illustrate.

You'll be able to cater your smoothies to your lifestyle and dietary needs. Want more energy but in a truly unique blend? Thai Bubble Tea Slush is a fun and exciting way to add zest and vigour to your day. Need more probiotics in your diet? Sippin' on Jasmine Honey Lassi oughtta do it!

I like that there's a whole section dedicated to ailments, so if you're suffering from nausea or arthritis, there's a smoothie that will help.

There is a section especially for kids and then for the adults only, alcoholic concoctions such as Cucumber Sake-Tinis and Orange Whiskey Sours that will delight your summer dinner party guests.

And a really comprehensive section on binders and ingredients shows you how to use and incorporate each into your smoothies. You'll learn about intriguing products such as agave nectar, Irish moss, cacao nibs and bee pollen. And use the hottest new items such as Kombucha, matcha powder and goji berries to give you the energy you need to get through your busy day.

Stop wasting your money on mass-made smoothies filled with sugars and fillers and make your own exciting blends at home!

Thanks to Mary Corpening Barber and Sara Corpening Whiteford, you can now get the energy you've been craving, in a healthy, convenient drink.

Just in time, too. We've still got a couple of months of hot weather ahead of us!
