Smoothies? Martha Has an App for That!


Smoothies are a healthy snack and a great meal alternative during these hot summer days when it’s too hot to cook.


Now, Martha Stewart has made cooling off even easier with a new iPad app featuring 60 delicious smoothie recipes grouped into three categories: Essential, Meal-in-a-Glass and Allergen-Free. Smoothies in the “Essential” bundle include classic combos and favorites, while “Meal-in-a-Glass” options are loaded with protein and fiber, making them a true meal replacement. Smoothie recipes in the “Allergen-Free” classification avoid common allergens such as nuts, dairy, wheat and soy.

One of the nicest features about this new app is that each smoothie recipe comes with a large, colorful photograph so you know what the end product looks like. You’ll also find nutritional information for every recipe and the app lets you mark and share your favorites via email and Facebook.

You can also search recipes based on a specific ingredient or by a type of smoothie, making this app extra helpful when you have a craving or you don’t know what to do with the fruits and vegetables you have on hand.


I suspect purchasing this app will be well worth the inexpensive $1.99 pricetag! Plus, you can download other bundles, such as the “Weight Loss” smoothie recipe package for only $0.99 extra.
