Strawberries aren’t just delicious, they are also one of the healthiest foods you can eat (or drink). They are chockfull of antioxidants that provide cardiovascular benefits as well as having a positive effect on lowering blood sugar. Not to mention a serving of strawberries has more vitamin C than an orange.
Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties as well as aiding in digestion and helping the body naturally detoxify. It may also help alleviate pain – from arthritis to menstrual pain and more. Such a great thing to add into your daily green smoothie to give it some pep and up the nutrients even more.
This is not your basic strawberry banana green smoothie. Oh, no. This has a kick of fresh ginger to wake up your mouth. And it’s just the right amount. The almond milk and banana make this smoothie taste like a milkshake.

- 1 banana
- 1 tablespoon grated ginger (to taste)
- Blend spinach and almond milk until smooth.
- Add remaining ingredients, and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
*Use at least one frozen fruit to make the green smoothie cold.
