Smoothies are my version of a clean slate. Feeling gross? Have a smoothie. Had a bunch of greasy food the night before? Have a smoothie. It’s a perfect solution to filling your belly and keeping your conscience clear. My Ginger Berry Fruit Smoothie is just one more variation that you can add to your breakfast or snack rotation to keep feeling healthy and satisfied.

Ingredients

  • Banana: Naturally sweetens and adds a creaminess to the smoothie, while also beinga great source of vitamins and nutrients.
  • Apple: Use whatever you have! If you like tart flavor, use a Granny Smith. I’ve used gala, fuji, and honeycrisp.
  • Berries: I like to use a frozen mixed bag of blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries. But you can use fresh or frozen, and whatever you have on hand.
  • Spinach: Practically flavorless, but a fantastic source of iron along with other vitamins.
  • Ginger: Virtually calorie-free, it transforms your smoothie from a dull mixture into a tangy treat.
  • Flaxseed meal: Flavorless, but adds healthy and important omega-3 fatty acids and fiber.

Easy Substitutions

  • Thicken it up. Add some plain Greek yogurt to make your smoothie extra creamy, not to mention it’ll add an extra punch of protein.
  • Switch out your greens. If you don’t have spinach, you can also use kale or any other leafy green in your fridge.
  • Use your own berry blend. Use what you like! If you only have raspberries, use only raspberries. Fresh or frozen, any combination is good.
