Dr Oz morning green smoothie
I haven’t posted a smoothie in the blog for a while even though smoothies are really regular at my house.
This would be the perfect morning drink or snack. It is packed with nutrition and it is extremely refreshing.
Because of the holidays, we tend to eat a bit more at gatherings and such, so go ahead and start your day with this smoothie. You are sure to be energized after you drink it and obtain certain vitamins and minerals you won’t be getting by eating all of the holiday cookies :-)
Because I love ginger I actually used a bit more. If you like you can also add a banana if you think it is too bitter for you. Because I added the lemon ginger juice I found in Trader Joe’s, that sufficed for us.
Two more days until Christmas. I can’t believe it. I think time is going by faster as I get older :-( Not good!!
Well I will leave you with this sensational nutritious drink which I hope you venture to try sometime.
Just place all of the ingredients in the blender and pulse until smooth. This will sure give you some powerful nutrition to start your day.
