We love smoothies and fresh juices round here. There’s hardly a day goes by when the blender isn’t out to whip up a breakfast shake or afternoon smoothie. I find it’s a great way to get a good variety of different fresh ingredients and nutritious foods into the family diet. Plus it’s fun to experiment with our 3 year old and come up with new favourite combinations. For us it’s been a great way to get her trying new and unfamiliar ingredients while having lots of fun with food at the same time.

I’ve been a fan of Emily Von Euw and her blog This Rawsome Vegan Life for some time, so when a copy of Emily’s new book arrived on our doorstep, we jumped for joy! With so many clever, nourishing, delicious and completely vegan recipes to choose from – we’re in some kind of juice and smoothie heaven!!

100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks is one of those cookbooks that no matter where you open the page, you want to eat (or drink) straight away, what’s staring back at you. The photos are gorgeous and pop off the page with their vibrant colour. The recipes are truly inspiring with so many delicious and beautiful ways of enjoying a huge variety of healthy and invigorating ingredients. This book could change your life or at the very least make it a whole lot tastier!!

Not just all fruit smoothies and juice combinations, the book covers a whole range of healthy ideas. It has a beautiful chapter on mylks (non-dairy milk) and mylkshakes. A yummy chapter on Energy Bars & Healthy Snacks packed with easy, healthy and inspiring recipes and the one that caught my eye the most, a chapter on Savoury Smoothies! Being a soup addict and smoothie lover, I couldn’t resist the look of all the fresh, nourishing and inventive recipes and am lucky enough to be able to share one with you today!

Below is a beautiful recipe adapted from Emily’s book for Curried Carrot Cream. A simple, nourishing and tasty savoury smoothie that’s really just like a simple soup. I added fresh turmeric and lots of lime juice to give it an extra kick of fresh flavour and served it cold because, well, it’s Summer! If that ideas doesn’t sit well with you, serve it as Emily does at room temperature. Delicious, either way.

You can find the real thing along with so many other super recipes in her book 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks available where all good books are sold or enter the giveaway below!! And be sure to check out her super inspiring blog for loads of healthy vegan goodness.

    I am a massive fan of the morning breakfast muesli smoothie. Almond milk, dates, honey/agave, muesli/oats and banana makes for a delicious start to my day. The best thing about this smoothie is that it is so easy to jazz up with different ingredients like berries, coconut or cacao.

  • Reply Jay V. January 13, 2015 at 9:01 pm

    Fit for all occasions … Frozen bananas, almond milk, dates (to sweeten), almond butter and cocoa powder ! Whole Foods calls this “The Nutter”.

    Yum!
