Notes

To save yourself time in the morning, prepare your smoothie cup the night before with all of your ingredients. Blend in the morning and enjoy! If you are really trying to save some morning minutes, simply double or triple the recipe and make in a large blender. Pour smoothie into small glass jars and pop into the freezer. (Be careful to leave about an inch at the top of the jar. Over filling may result in cracked glass jars.) Simply pull your smoothie of the freezer the night before for breakfast or on your way out the door for an on the go healthy snack.
If you are new to greens in your smoothies, try starting with romaine lettuce. The flavour is more subtle than the spinach or kale but it still packs a nutritional punch!
My secret ingredient is GINGER! I love me some ginger! Not only does it put an extra little zip in my morning step, it is also anti-inflammatory, supports digestion, and boosts the immune system. For those mamas-to-be, ginger is a natural way to help with morning sickness too.
