Review of Crussh: Juices, Smoothies and Boosters
Just to let you know, this post was written before I started the paleo diet to help ease my psoriasis. Nowadays I eat a more allergy-friendly diet, but leave these older, non-paleo posts up in case they are useful to readers, as I know not everyone eats the same as I do. Thanks for your understanding.
It's Crussh - Juices, Smoothies and Boosters, brought to you by the juice and smoothie bar of the same name. In it, there are delicious recipes for various juices and smoothies to up your fruit intake and fill you up in the morning.
The recipes are very easy to follow. They're short and to the point, and I love how each smoothie is broken up into its nutritional information - what it contains and how exactly it benefits your health. There are smoothies and juices to aid your digestion, give you glowing skin and boost your energy. You'll need an electric juicer though, and a blender - to get the full potential out of this book, and to make the booster smoothies you'll need to add things like coenzyme Q10, chia seeds and ginseng to your shopping list.

Smoothies and juices, they also argue, are a great way of keeping you hydrated. There's also a section at the front of the book which talks about the fruits and vegetables you can use in a drink and which nutrients they contain - great for making up your own drinks once you master some of the basics.

Crussh is a great book for people who want to turn their everyday smoothie into something more delicious, and be more adventurous with ingredients and flavour combinations. And if you already have an electric juicer and a blender, you're already halfway there.
