GINGER-ORANGE GREEN SMOOTHIE RECIPE

Not only does this smoothie taste like sunshine (fresh orange juice!) and have a spicy kick of ginger (nothing says I love you like ginger), but it’s also packed with powerful greens. So it tastes like sunshine but will give you all of those lovely dark leafy green health benefits. Win!

When I was sick a couple of weeks ago, I drank one of these daily. Although I can’t be sure if all those ginger-orange smoothies helped me kick my cold, they certainly tasted good. 🙂 And on the days when cooking sounded like a lot of work, it was nice to know that I was getting in a dose of fresh fruits and veggies.

  • 1″-2″ knob of fresh ginger
  • 1 cucumber (optional) peel if not organic
DIRECTIONS
  1. Rinse and prep veggies.
  2. If you have a high-powered blender, throw everything in and blend until smooth. If not, first blend the spinach and romaine until smooth, then add the remaining ingredients and blend.
