If you are just getting your feet wet with this whole green smoothie business, and don’t really want to taste any greens this is a perfect smoothie for you! It’s got delicious blueberries and banana then some added zing that will make your tastebuds smile.
An added bonus as cold season is upon us, not only is this smoothie packed with Vitamin C, but the wonderful and super healthy Ginger. Ginger is not only known for soothing a sore belly – as in gas and other digestive issues, it is also used as an anti-nauseant (BONUS: it is safe for pregnant women), it also has anti-inflammatory properties and will give your immune system a boost, so get that Ginger in with your greens and Vitamin C!
- 1 cup frozen (or fresh) blueberries
- two handfuls spinach
- one banana
- juice from one mandarin orange
- chopped ginger to taste
- water (or sub for coconut water, or almond milk)
Make sure you are paying close attention – this one is complicated. Combine ingredients and blend (liquid to a bit below the rest of the ingredients). That’s it, that’s all – a delicious smoothie! If you close your eyes you might just think you are on vacation ;)
