One of the highlights of my career has been being able to write and do the photography for two cookbooks – and with two absolutely amazing publishers (HMH + Avery). 365 Vegan Smoothies and Healthy Happy Vegan Kitchen.
Cookbooks by Kathy Patalsky:
- 365 Vegan Smoothies – Amazon – (2013)

Dreams Come True.
When I was a teenager, one of my favorite book subject: smoothie books! I would ogle the colorful pages of fruity, frosty drinks. And to be able to write one of my own – as my first cookbook – is a dream come true. Furthermore, my second book, HHVK, is a complete collection of all of my blog favorites and new recipes as well. It is loaded with everything you need to explore plant-based cooking.
“Healthy Happy Vegan Kitchen is one of my favorite cookbooks on my shelves. I dare you to read her recipes and not start pulling out the sticky notes to mark the ones you just have to make! (Hint: Start with the Maple Chili Bean–Stuffed Sweet Potato!) Kathy started out as my go-to resource for all information about veganism. She has turned into one of my all-time favorite recipe sources, vegan or not.“

“This book is such a great choice for vegans, vegetarians, those thinking about adopting a plant based lifestyle or even those that just want to add the occasional vegan meal into their diet! It’s fun, loaded with over 220 recipes from the very simple to the more time consuming; but more than anything, it’s a good read! Unlike so many other books that advocate a plant based lifestyle, this is not at all preachy; just filled with tips and suggestions, written in such a carefree way, it’s almost like you are having a chat with a friend!”

Why this cookbook works!…
“..Why I recommend this book: I find Kathy very inspiring. Her book if full of her creativity and knowledge of vegan cooking. She’s the real deal when it comes to veganism. When I am sick of food altogether I always turn to her ideas for inspiration and it’s the perfect solution every time. I can always find something delicious to cook up when I look at Kathy’s dishes. I own both her cook books and they have been very helpful for me.”

365 Vegan Smoothies
My first cookbook.
ISBN 9781583335178 | 352 pages | 04 Jun 2013 | Avery Trade Paperback
365 Vegan Smoothies was my very first cookbook, so it holds a special place in my heart. It was such a blast creating a different smoothie recipe for every day of the year. This book is filled with smoothie inspiration. From fun, creative names and an ingredients index with loads of nutrition facts, to plenty of go-to smoothie making tips. If you want to add more smoothies to your life, this book will help.
From green smoothies, dessert smoothies, refreshing smoothies, berry smoothies and a good handful of creative smoothies – your blender is ready for this workout!
“Don’t Hesitate, Just Buy!”
Why this cookbook works!…
“I have three letters for you: O.M.G.
I am a long distance runner. I deal with several food issues, such as celiac’s and lactose intolerance. I went vegan 6 years ago, and have been a veggie for 16 years now.
That does not exclude me from being unhealthy!
I am currently training for the Dopey Challenge at the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and decided that this training cycle, I was going to focus more on nutrition quality. I love smoothies, but I have one smoothie recipe and that’s it. 1 cup soy milk, 1 cup frozen fruit, 1 banana, and ½ tbs flax seed oil, and sometimes some protein powder.
That being said, I knew smoothies hold a lot of nutritional value, when utilized correctly. But I needed help!
On to Amazon I went. This popped right up and I bought it immediately.
Don’t hesitate, just buy.
This is hands down one of the best recipe books I have ever bought.
Every single recipe I’ve made is GOLD. I’m not even ¼ of the way through either! I can’t eat the ones with nuts due to an allergy, but they sound AMAZING!
Trust me, click the button, buy the book..”
