There is no better way than to start your morning with a healing green smoothie. You can pack a ton of nutrient dense goodness into your blender and viola! You’ve got yourself a healing elixir to help fuel your morning.
One of the best ways to spruce up a green smoothie is to try incorporating different healing spices and herbs. From turmeric, to cinnamon and ginger, I love adding these powerful healing spices to my morning smoothie.
This delicious vanilla and ginger green smoothie is full of powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties from ginger. You can choose to use freshly grated ginger or ground ginger.
