Never-repeating recipes and an easy-to-implement plan make daily smoothies a fast and healthy habit.
Leading nutritionist Daniella Chace takes the guesswork out of what to blend with 365 recipes―yes, one for each day of the year―organized with the busy person in mind. Grouped in weekly installments by season with corresponding shopping lists, this book will appeal to readers who want to lose weight, increase energy, reduce bloat, and feel great, but need a straightforward, step-by-step plan to put them on track. Less thinking about the ingredients, more enjoying the result.
Each recipe introduces a weight-loss concept, such as adding probiotic supplements and cultured foods; increasing phytochemicals found in greens and berries; boosting spices that reduce inflammation; hydrating with electrolytes; stocking up on frozen berries and dry goods; and adding protein such as hemp, chia, or protein supplement powders to increase satiation. Fans of the program keep on drinking Chase’s smoothies year after year!

This recipe was inspired by my favorite treat at my local movie house, the Rose Theatre in Port Townsend, Washington: dried cherries dipped in milk chocolate. This drink is protein rich from chia and protein power, and even small amounts of plant-based protein have been found to reduce appetite and sugar cravings.
Combine all ingredients in a high-power blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Drink immediately.
½ frozen banana
½ cup plant milk
½ cup ice
½ cup frozen cherries
2 tablespoons chia seed
1 tablespoon protein powder
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
