    is there a reason there isn’t any calorie information given with your smoothies recipes? Are they given in your new book?

    Sms doesn’t include caloric or macronutrient info. If you wanted to look it up in myfitnesspal, that’s an option.

    Hi Judi,

    We personally don’t count calories, so we don’t include them in our recipes at this time. You’ll find that when you consume more nourishing whole fruits and veggies, you will not only feel full longer, but you’ll also have lessened cravings for high-calorie, nutritionally empty foods. So in the end it balances out. But we know many people would like to have calorie info. Three great resources for tracking calories are Self Nutrition Data, and the phone apps: My Fitness Pal and Lose It.

    Hi! Loving your recipes. Thank you! Just wondering if your book will be sold in australia? I realise it can be ordered but with the exchange rate and postage it cost quite a bit. And i also realise it is an ebook but u would really like a hard copy.

    Bought the book, tried this recipe. This is beyond delish. I used to make a variation of this with regular unsweetened dutch processed cocoa, vanilla syrup, and some other unhealthy stuff. But this recipe is more tasty, more healthy, and I’m amazed that I can’t taste the spinach. I’ve never used cacao powder before and never knew of its benefits. I dont feel any guilt in drinking this. Thanks for this great recipe!
