DEBORAH GRAY has had an interest in healthy eating since her teens when she began working as a Saturday assistant in a trendy health food cafe in London. Following a spell working in publishing in California, she returned to London and began her career in cookery publishing. She went on to write a number of cookery books, including 500 Vegan Recipes, 500 Quick Meals, 500 Light Meals, The Green Website Guide for Better Living, and numerous family cookbooks. She has been the cookery editor on very many more. She returned to America with her family, but is now settled in Wiltshire where she has access to home-grown and fresh farm produce, and wonderful country air.
"[Big Green Chiller] this wonderful concoction is a farmers' market stall in a glass!" Woman & Home "If you are planning on exploring juicing and smoothie making and have a juicer or blender on your wish this list this Christmas then a juicing and smoothie book is an essential accompaniment, and this book fits the bill nicely and has earned its spot on my bookshelf." Fuss Free Flavours "Before you dive into the profusion of juicing ideas, the useful chapter on equipment, fruit and ingredients is well worth a read. It describes major fruit, vegetables and other additions such as natural sweeteners, dairy substitutes and flavourings. It gives the best way to prepare the fruit or veg and extract the juice, the calories contained and how much juice to expect per fruit plus the health benefits. The chapters give more evidence that this is worth its shelf space: Breakfast Blends, Cleansing Drinks, Restorative Drinks, Super Energy Boosters, Thirst Quenchers, Milkshakes and Frozen Drinks, Perfect for Parties and Mocktails. It's not all about abstemious self-denial and some recipes include frozen yoghurt, ice cream, coffee, sparkling water and even soda (boo) plus, in the party section, alcohol, but the main thrust of the book is on healthy drinks. Many are just ideas for fruit combinations especially in the juicing section. When preparing a smoothie, I usually just make it up as I go along using what I have on hand. The ideas in this book too me way outside my usual repertoire. I'd never thought of blitzing lemon and garlic into a shot, or adding nuts to bananas, or using stewed fruit from the freezer. And lentils in a smoothie or rosewater with lychees? So much inspiration." My Custard Pie
