Todd and I have gotten on a kick of putting ginger in our green smoothies, and you know what? They are delicious! Plus the ginger is an anti-inflammatory food. This green smoothie is sweet, fresh, and has a gentle spicy kick from the ginger root. We add an apple to this for a crisp and juicy flavor. It is chock-full of good-for-you ingredients, and packs a real nutritional punch, but it still tastes sweet. The bee pollen, chia seeds, and flax seeds are some of my go-to smoothie additions. They are optional, but smoothies are a great vehicle for added supplements, so we add them to every smoothie we make.
These aren’t the prettiest photos, but I wanted to share this recipe with you all. We have loved it lately. Plus, in the midst of cold and flu season, any way to ingest extra nutrients is helpful.
