Ginger is my new favorite ingredient to add to smoothies! You should check out all the health benefits, it will amaze you! Adding it to a smoothie is simple, you simply cut off a tiny piece ( a little goes a long way) and drop it in. Ginger gives a smoothie a little zing without an over powering flavor.
Here is one of my favorites:
Ginger Kale Smoothie
Put the following ingredients into your blender ( I use a Vitamix) in the order listed below:
- 1 banana
- 1 carrot
- 1 orange (peel leaving the pulp)
- 1 apple
- 1 cup kale
- 1 cup milk (rice, almond, cow)
- 2 cups ice
- 1 sliver of ginger (about ½ inch thick)
Blend on high for 30 sec or until smooth.
