Banana Ginger Smoothie

Smoothies are out there…everywhere! You can’t get away from them, so you might as well join in. However, let’s join in the “right” way! Some smoothies are infused with so much sugar, processed flavors, and absolutely NO nutrition. I prefer a smoothie that is high in protein and fiber, which can make you feel fuller, is nourishing, and has less calories. This recipe includes ginger. I love ginger because of its many benefits. It can be a pain reliever, help with digestion, reduce nausea symptoms, and is an anti-inflammatory. With my recipe, I’ve made it simple for you to make this healthy, wholesome, and tasty treat!

½ of a ripe banana (if small, use the whole thing)

Optional: Add 1 teaspoon of carob or cocoa powder for a “cozy” feeling!

Directions:
1. Place all ingredients in a blender.
2. Blend to combine all of the ingredients.

Scuotere un po’ e andare liscia
