I can’t even begin to stress the amount of healthy goodness in a green smoothie. I like to start off my mornings with this mango banana spinach smoothie, packed with fiber, protein and lots of vitamins.
I added ginger as an optional ingredient, as not everyone has a knack for spice. If you’re a ginger fan, my advice would be to boil ginger tea and keep it in the fridge for more potency.
