This Friday we are going to get the weekend started off to a great start with smoothies and 2 giveaways.
Are you a fan of smoothies and maintaining a healthy waistline without sacrificing taste? Then Blend: Artisanal Smoothies for Food Lovers is THE e-Book for you. This gorgeous, healthy, flavour packed e-Book is the labor of love of Faith Gorsky of An Edible Mosaic and Alyssa Brantley of Everyday Maven, two smoothie-obsessed food bloggers whose common interest in artisanal smoothies and shared desire to elevate smoothie-making has kept them up countless nights. For the last year and a half, they’ve been developing recipes, photographing them, and of course, refining the flavors until they were just perfect.
Blend: Artisanal Smoothies for Food Lovers, Summer Volume 1 is a compilation of 25 summer and fall-themed smoothies such as Gingered Apricot, Minted Strawberry Melon, Vanilla Fig, and Concord Grape + Greens. (Look out for more BLEND volumes coming soon!) Not only are all BLEND smoothies made with clean, easy-to-find ingredients, but they are also dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan (honey is used in some) in most cases. Plus you probably already have many of the pantry staples on hand, and if not, they can all be easily found in any health food store, as well as most regular grocery stores.
In addition to the e-Cookbook Faith and Alyssa wrote an accompanying e-Book, Blend The Basics, that is indispensable not only for smoothie making but also for all home cooks.
Blend: The Basics gives tons of tips and tricks to help you make the most of your smoothies, including how to wash fresh produce, flash-freeze fruit, make sure your smoothies come together as quickly as possible without sacrificing their artisanal flavor (including info on how to put together a “smoothie kit”), and much more!
These two e-Books are among the very best smoothie books I have ever seen! The photography is gorgeous, the recipes easy to follow, the tips and information invaluable (they even provide nutrition and PP information), and all the smoothies I’ve made from Blend are super packed with awesome flavours. They were all so satisfying that they replaced meals for me. Let me make your mouth water with a few more samples from Alyssa’s and Faith’s e-Book…
The authors were kind enough to offer two set of both books BLEND: The Basics and BLEND: Summer Volume I.
One set will be given away to one non-blogger reader and one set to a blogger, the blogger must also agree to review the books.
The giveaway is open worldwide, and all you had to do is leave a comment saying what smoothie you would make first from the Table of Contents. Also please state whether you’re a blogger or not.
The winners will be announced next Tuesday the 9th of July. Go on leave a comment and enter the giveaway!:)
