Green Smoothies - An App Review

When I offered the chance to try out an app filled with green smoothie recipes, I jumped at the chance. Let's face it, the green smoothie fad is not going to go away for a while. And that's okay because these green liquids are good for us!

Green Smoothies is an app created by Lauren Glucina from Ascension Kitchen. It is a collection of 30 healthy green juice recipes. It costs $3.79 to get it on iTunes. "Well, why can't I just Google for some free recipes and save myself $3.79?" you might ask. For one, I find that most websites only list 3 recipes at most. And even if they list 10, I find that most of them are not very exciting. Lauren uses an extensive range of ingredients, all of which are good for the body, to achieve a huge variety of flavours and benefits. From bok choy to passionfruit, you name it!

The app also contains a video on how to make "Kind Milk". Basically milk from a type of nut of your choice! I found it really fascinating and plan on giving it a go one day. Another cool feature is the Shopping List. You can select a recipe and add it to the Shopping List. That way, you can easily consult the list of ingredients that you need for a particular smoothie when you're out getting the groceries.

Tea Remedy I made
Yes, this all sounds exciting but what you if you don't own an iPad or an iPhone? Fear not, fair maiden! Lauren has got you covered. You can purchase the eBook version from her website. That's all I have to say about this neat little app. I haven't mentioned everything single thing that's in it because surprises are more fun! I'll leave the rest for you to judge if/when you try it out.

Are you fan of green smoothies? Do you have any tips on how to make green smoothies? Please do share!

  5. Sounds interesting - the nut milk would be really handy as well as I try and avoid dairy most of the time! x
