A pre-copy of our newest book, Green Kitchen Smoothies has landed in our kitchen and we are giddy as kids about it (and really proud)! Whilst we were working on the smoothie pack for our app, last summer, we realised how versatile smoothies can be and how much we loved both drinking and making them. We often enjoy smoothies for breakfast, as a healthier midday alternative to sweet snacks and drinks, as a dessert and always after a workout. So you can imagine how thrilled we where when our publisher asked us if we wanted to develop more blends and gather them all into a book that you could hold, read, flip through, give away, collect and hug (or maybe that’s just us?).
Our hope is that both experienced smoothie enthusiasts and newbies will find drinks to love in this book. It’s loaded with new smoothies, juices and nut milks, along with our favourites from the app and blog – a mix of simple smoothies and real showstoppers (with layers and toppings). We have also included granola, muesli and nut butter recipes along with lots of really handy tips and tricks. Almost 60 recipes in total, 160 pages thick and a bit smaller in size than our first books and therefore sold at a slightly lower price point (so everyone can afford one or two or three…).
We are obviously bias, but we think it’s the most gorgeous smoothie book out there. We have put a ridiculous amount of energy into creating unique photos for every smoothie and we have perfected all of the recipes meticulously. This time we even took in help from a separate tester on the other side of the globe, to make sure all the blends would taste good regardless of ingredients, season or location.
It is released in the UK and Australia on June 16th and you can pre-order it from Amazon.co.uk (UK) or Booktopia.com.au (Aus) now! It will be released in the US on August 2 but it is already available for pre-orders on Amazon.com.
The book is also being printed in German, Dutch, Swedish and Danish in September and we will add links for pre-ordering as soon as we have that info.
We are coming to London!
To celebrate the launch of the book, Luise and I will be in London during the second week of June for a bunch of talks, supper clubs, events and book signings. We will do a talk at the Good Roots Festival on June 11th together with Sarah Britton, Deliciously Ella, the Hemsley sisters and a bunch of other inspiring people. Tickets seem to already have sold out but you might be able to sign up, in case they release extra tickets. We will post more info about our events really soon! The latest info will probably reach instagram first, so keep your eye out.
