I absolutely love vegetables but I know some people cringe when they hear the word broccoli or kale. I want to make it known that putting vegetables along with fruit into your smoothie is a GREAT way to get your veggies in! I’ve been making myself a smoothie every morning and I feel fabulous because of it! It is a great way to start the day.
Today I made a ginger berry smoothie. Lately I’ve been using ginger in lots of things and I love it! If you like ginger I suggest it in your smoothies…it tastes like a vacation to the Caribbean.
I know some might think that the veggies are over board but your taste buds develop a love for them! And in this case, they are blended with all the fruit to create a fresh delicious flavour!
So the above photo is the ingredients I used this morning.
- Mixed berries
- flax seed, Tbsp or so.
- ginger, about a tsp. size
- Liquid of choice- today I used almond milk and I usually use about one cup but it varies depending on my desired thickness.
- Protein powder (Optional) – I like to add some protein powder into my smoothies if I am using almond milk because it is lacking in the protein department!
You can pretty much throw what ever you have into it! I love using beets, kale, apples, cucumbers, cinnamon, cooked pumpkin, cocoa powder, coconut…you get the point, anything goes!
Mix it up and have FUN with it!
Enjoy your lovely day!
