The Blender Girl and her healthy, blender-centric recipes have taken the world by storm—and in this comprehensive smoothie-making guide, she takes smoothies to the next level and helps you blast your way to good health and blended bliss. One hundred creative and delicious smoothie recipes each contain three additional boosters (like chia seeds, ginger, or wheatgrass) that ramp up the flavor, nutrient value, or both. And the unique search function lets you punch in what you feel (happy, sluggish, wired), need (a detox, to lose weight, to chill out), and crave (light and fruity, clean and green, an exotic ride) to find the right smoothie every day. Featuring gorgeous photographs of every recipe, an extensive ingredient glossary, shopping lists, blender tips, both Imperial and metric measurements, and other handy tips and tricks, this app makes it fun and easy to find your perfect blend.

Features include:

100 Delicious Smoothie Recipes.

Stunning Full-color Photography: In addition to images of every smoothie recipe, the app includes photos of frequently used and recommended ingredients in the glossary.

Optional Flavor and Nutrition Boosters: Three additional ingredients per recipe can be added to boost flavor complexity, nutrition, or both. Use one, two, or all three options according to your taste or sense of adventure.

Unique Search Functionality: Search by ingredient, dietary preferences, or recipe type, or use the unique story feature and fill in “I feel, I need, I crave” options to find smoothies that fit your mood on any given day.

Special Dietary and Nutritional Information: Recipe summaries list the health benefits of each smoothie, special icons flag recipes that are appropriate for specific needs (weight loss, anti-inflammatory, high-protein, alkaline, and so on), and nutritional info provides calories, fat, sodium, carbs, fiber, sugar, protein, calcium, and iron levels.

Imperial and Metric Measurements: Set the app to display your preferred system of recipe measures.

Customized User Settings: Personalize your experience by setting dietary preferences and update alerts or toggle between Imperial and metric measurements.

Comprehensive Glossary: Expanded information on the nutritional benefits of the recipes, including tips on selecting, storing, and incorporating ingredients—along with labeled photos--help you create your own delicious blends.

Accessibility Comments: 

This app while it is very much usable with Voiceover, contains a lot of information so it can appear quite cluttered. That said, the tour of the app, which you can view from the app's home section, does not read properly. Voiceover sees that there are three pages; which you can scroll through, but the on-screen text does not change. It is for this reason alone, that I have rated it as Voiceover reading most page elements, rather than all. There is useful information around how to get the most out of the app on that one visible page however, so it's worth reviewing. The things that are expected — why you should purchase — an awesome array of smoothie recipes and resources, all searchable from one app, are completely accessible.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.
