What people are saying:

a big variety of tasty, healthy drinks

This book is full of a huge variety of healthy, low-fat drinks. A few years ago I stopped drinking soft drinks and one of my main problems ever since is that there really aren’t many interesting, tasty drinks to choose from.

We all know we should drink at least 2 liters of liquid per day, but water is so incredibly boring and there is only so much of green tea you want to drink. What I really like about this recipe book is the great variety of drinks: shakes, smoothies, punches, flavoured water – and even some light alcoholic drinks.

All recipes come with nutritional information and I think that this is very helpful information. Unfortunately so many recipe books and drinks books don’t feature this information.

I’ve seen that some reviewers complained about the fact that a few recipes of the book still have a lot of calories – I think it all depends on what your objective is and what you compare against. The recipes here contain healthy ingredients – fruits, skim yogurt, etc. So the result are healthy drinks. Healthy does not necessarily mean low-calories, just by adding fruits you obviously add a lot of calories. But it all depends on what you compare it against. If you compare against most of the commercially available drinks you’ll find that the recipes here have less calories – obviously, if you compare against water, that’s a completely different story.

The recipe book comes with an interactive TOC that works with the Kindle navigation system. The font size of the recipes is by default quite small, but you can obviously change this in the menu settings of your kindle. Personally I would change the artificial sweetener with Stevia or Xylitol, but that’s a personal choice and a substitution that can be easily made.

In general, I find that there’s a great variety of healthy, low-fat drinks here, and the formatting is also nice and professional.

No More Water for Me!
I’m ready to put some flavor in my life and drink some of these delicious mixtures Joan has included in her book.

The cold strawberry refresher can now take the place of my afternoon piece of cake. d:-)

And, she offers many more including morning drinks and spiced tea!

If you love variety in your life without adding up a tummy full of calories, this book is one to get.

More Than Water

Let me start by staying that Amazon has a big selection of recipe books for your Kindle.
This is just one of the many I found. Recipe books on everything from Smoothies, Cakes,
Cookies, Crockpot recipies, Pies, Side dishes and so much more. And the fact they are
on your Kindle for easy access with out having a lot of recipe books taking up space in
the kitchen is a great way to save on space.
This book has a great list of drink ideas from smoothies to making flavored water.
