Green Ginger Power Smoothie
- 2 cups water
- 2 cups mixed greens (kale, spinach, and chard)
- 1 Persian cucumber
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 small pear
- 1 small apple
- 1 (1 inch) piece fresh ginger
For best results, we recommend using:
- Blend water, greens, cucumber, banana, pear, apple, and ginger in a high-speed blender on Low for 10 seconds. Increase speed to High and blend until smooth, about 45 seconds. Alternately, place ingredients in the chopper attachment of an immersion blender and blend until smooth.
You can add practically any fruits to this smoothie to delicious results. Try mango and pineapple in place of the apple and pear. Always freeze some of the fruit for temperature and texture.
What others are saying
Katie Hason says:
I used spinach and cucumber, along with the fruit to make this smoothie. It was really refreshing and delicious! You can also add apple juice in place of water unless you're trying to watch your sugar intake. All in all I enjoyed this a lot.
Laura Griffin says:
Good green smoothie for beginners. The apple and pear tone down the green flavor. If you're new to the green smoothie train, this is a good recipe to start.
