Recipe: Mango Ginger Smoothie

When I took my first sip of this smoothie – I thought “wow! I’m awake now!”. I’m pretty sure it was due to the ginger I had in there.

When I cleaned out the freezer last week, I found so many nubs of fresh ginger. I guess I kept losing them in the freezer, forgetting about them, and just buying more!

So to use up this lovely ginger that has so many health benefits, I came up with this fresh tasting summer smoothie.

But first, let me recap why ginger is good for you. Ginger:

  • helps with nausea
  • helps reduce pain
  • is anti-inflammatory
  • helps boost your immune system
  • is anti-fungal
  • helps with digestion
  • and more!

am I selling you on it yet? If yes, give this smoothie a try.

Mango ginger smoothie:

  • 1/4 cup of fresh mango (or frozen)
  • 1/2 to 1 inch of peeled fresh ginger
  • 1-2 handfuls of spinach
  • 1 tbsp hemp hearts
  • 1 scoop of protein powder
  • 1/2 frozen banana (or fresh)
  • 1 cup of almond milk (or whatever milk you like to use, or 1/2 milk 1/2 water)

Put all of this into a blender, and blend! Enjoy!
