I am very excited today because one of my favourite bloggers, Tess Masters just released her new book, The Blender Girl!
I was so excited to receive this book as I’ve made loads of the recipes on Blender Girl website and they have all been gorgeous. This book is the prettiest book I’ve ever seen. The photos are absolutely stunning and the recipes are not only healthy but extremely delicious. You can get The Blender Girl book on Amazon right now.

Tess kindly gave her permission for me to post one of her amazing recipes for the book, and I chose the antioxidant avenger as I’m in need of a nutrient boost at the moment. I hope you enjoy this delicious recipe as much as I did!
“I think of this powerful blend as “field to shield.” With the antioxidant weight of
these ingredients, nothin’s gettin’ the better of you! You can enjoy this booster in
summer with a little sweetener and omit the trio of orange zest, cinnamon, and
ginger. But, these warming spices taste absolutely incredible with the berries, really
pull the other flavors together, and elevate this smoothie from good to great. The
açaí and maqui are optional but provide an invaluable boost, and I always include
them. If you don’t add these superfoods or the spices, you may not need the dates.
However you make it, this one’s got your back.”

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
