I wanted to mention that I peel and cut up all my fresh ginger first and then freeze it stored in a zippered bag. I cut them into 1/4″ sized chunks. Try to find pieces of ginger that aren’t too wide in diameter which makes it easier to cut.

All of the ingredients in this green smoothie are detoxifying and the cucumbers make this shake taste so refreshing. I use a Nutri Ninja Blender Auto-IQ Duo, and it really grinds it up so I don’t worry about buying seedless cucumbers. I never taste the seeds. I use the Ultra Blend option and the smoothie is so smooth tasting and no pulp. I can feel it coursing through my body as I drink it. I know that sounds strange but I just feel so good after drinking.

*Remember, any recipe I post can be tweaked to the way you would like it. Use kale instead of baby spinach or instead of kiwi add pineapple or mango. I really love how the kiwi plays off the lemon juice. You can omit the coconut oil, but it does give the shake a very smooth taste. Don’t like avocado then leave it out, but you won’t taste it. It adds a nice creamy texture to this green smoothie. Besides, avocado is such a healthy fat so why wouldn’t you want to take advantage of this super fruit. Did you know that avocados contain more potassium than bananas? A 3.5 ounce serving of avocado contains 14% of the RDA (recommended daily allowance) compared to 10% in bananas plus avocado contains soluble fiber. Many of us don’t get enough fiber and women are supposed to eat 25 grams daily and men should eat 30 grams.

INGREDIENTS:
1/2c Baby Spinach
1/2c chopped Cucumber
1/2 of an Avocado
1/2 lemon (fresh squeezed)
1 Kiwi
1/2 Banana (I don’t always use banana)
1/4 cup of cilantro
1 scoop protein powder (or use a plant based protein)
1 tbsp Flaxseed (ground)
1 tbsp Coconut Oil (optional)
1/4 inch of fresh ginger
1 cup cold water
1/2 cup ice cubes to make it cold
Blend and drink up.
