Cherie Calbom, the “Juice Lady,” knows how to stir things up. 

The author of The Juice Lady’s Turbo Diet, The Juice Lady’s Living Foods Revolution, and Juicing for Life has just released her latest book, and she invites you to get in the kitchen and begin your own journey to health and revitalization with her tasty original juice recipes for every possible need. Of special interest to those dealing with health issues, her chapter on juice remedies and rejuvenators may transform you from failure to fitness with the push of a button.

Living life to the fullest is what The Juice Lady’s Big Book of Juices and Green Smoothies packages in a delectable combination of delicious drinks, green smoothies, gourmet juices, and her personal favorites. “Whether you are just getting started juicing or you’ve been juicing a long time, you probably have a few questions about this subject,” she begins in the first chapter. “I answer most of the questions I am frequently asked about juicing and juice nutrition. I also share guidelines for choosing a good juicer. And I answer some frequently asked questions about making a juice, such as which fruits and vegetables should be peeled first and which seeds can be juiced. I also give you plenty of tips to make juicing easy and fun.”

Cherie constructs her book in an easy-to-read format that includes many testimonies from consumers. The cookbook spreads out 9 chapters over 223 pages, along with two Appendices and a detailed Notes section in the back matter. Since readers will want to return to the book often to research specific recipes, the book divides the chapters into sections with color-coded paper, which make zeroing in on certain recipe types a snap. The book is written with excellent grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and spelling. The chapters include more than 100 full color illustrations.

Going green led us to her Cool Cucumber:

2 ribs of celery with leaves

2 leaves baby bok choy

2 romaine lettuce leaves

2-3 carrots, scrubbed well, tops removed, ends trimmed

For a gym in a juice, we experimented with Cranberry-Pear Fat Buster:

The Brain Helper recipe sounded good one foggy-headed morning:

For a green smoothie on a rough day, we liked the Green Tea Freeze:
