Read The Blender Girl: Super-Easy, Super-Healthy Meals, Snacks, Desserts, and Drinks--100 Gluten-Free, Vegan Recipes! Online Free - The debut cookbook from the powerhouse blogger behind theblendergirl.com, featuring 100 gluten-free, vegan recipes for smoothies, meals, and more made quickly and easily in a blender.
What’s your perfect blend?
On her wildly popular recipe blog, Tess Masters—aka, The Blender Girl—shares easy plant-based recipes that anyone can whip up fast in a blender. Tess’s lively, down-to-earth approach has attracted legions of fans looking for quick and fun ways to prepare healthy food. In The Blender Girl, Tess’s much-anticipated debut cookbook, she offers 100 whole-food recipes that are gluten-free and vegan, and rely on natural flavors and sweeteners. Many are also raw and nut-, soy-, corn-, and sugar-free.
Smoothies, soups, and spreads are a given in a blender cookbook, but this surprisingly versatile collection also includes appetizers, salads, and main dishes with a blended component, like Fresh Spring Rolls with Orange-Almond Sauce, Twisted Caesar Pleaser, Spicy Chickpea Burgers with Portobello Buns and Greens, and I-Love-Veggies! Bake. And even though many of Tess’s smoothies and shakes taste like dessert—Apple Pie in a Glass, Raspberry-Lemon Cheesecake, or Tastes-Like-Ice- Cream Kale, anyone?—her actual desserts are out-of this-world good, from Chocolate-Chile Banana Spilly to Flourless Triple-Pecan Mousse Pie and Chai Rice Pudding. Best of all, every recipe can easily be adjusted to your personal taste: add an extra squeeze of this, another handful of that, or leave something out altogether— these dishes are super forgiving, so you can’t mess them up.
Details on the benefits of soaking, sprouting, and dehydrating; proper food combining; and eating raw, probiotic-rich, and alkaline ingredients round out this nutrient-dense guide. But you don’t have to understand the science of good nutrition to run with The Blender Girl—all you need is a blender and a sense of adventure. So dust off your machine and get ready to find your perfect blend.

Wow! I have to step up my blender game. Usually I use it for smoothies, which I'm currently in a rut and need smoothie inspiration. So many wonderful new ideas and things to make.

I am a Vitamix newbie & got stuck in my pigeon hole as to what to blend... My favorite this summer was a watermelon margarita...

I've tried several recipes from this cookbook and can say that while I liked it, I didn't love it. The recipes have kind of been hit-or-miss, as some turned out great and were delicious (tastes-like-ice-cream kale smoothie) while others did not turn out at all (the fluffy gf pancakes).
A lot of t...

I'm looking forward to trying the recipes, but some of the science is thrown around a bit. For example, while I appreciate the fact that an anti-nutrient is a real thing, just saying that's what in the soaking liquid from nuts is not at all the whole story. Some of the other stuff (pH, raw foods,...

The smoothies and soups in this book look delicious. I am just too lazy to make them.
"Soak nuts beforehand" "roast veggies first for more complex flavor" "blend in batches"
Ain't nobody got time for that!

Not really for me, but for more of a food purest, it would probably be awesome. The tips and pictures were really nice and the book was a great size.
