Zingy Green Smoothie

Prep time 5 min cook time 0 min serves 3 Super Easy

Green smoothies are a tricky art from, get the balance of sweetness and bitterness wrong and you’re in for a bad time. Our version is perfectly balanced, and the heat from the root ginger gives it a great zingy kick. Will keep well refrigerated for 24 hours. If you’re new to green smoothies, start out by adding extra pineapple chunks for sweetness. Medjool dates can also give a deep caramel sweetness. Over time you can play with the balance of bitter versus sweet by adding more spinach.
