The best recipe for Vacation In A Glass Smoothie

Happy Monday!  Start your week out right with this green smoothie!

The tropical flavors of coconut, lime and ginger honestly make it taste like a vacation in a glass!

I usually save ginger for juicing, I’m not sure why because it tastes amazing in smoothies!  I can’t say enough about the healing qualities of ginger.  Ginger has been used for thousands of years to treat gastrointestinal distress and increase digestion.   It was a lifesaver when I was pregnant and suffering from morning all day sickness.  It works to alleviate motion sickness too!  For nausea, make a tea by steeping a 1/2 inch piece of ginger in hot water.

Not only is ginger beneficial for GI issues, it is a powerful anti-inflammatory.  The active compound is called gingerols.  Studies show that when consumed regularly, arthritic pain is significantly reduced. (The Encyclopedia of Healing Foods)  To benefit from the anti-inflammatory qualities of ginger, consume at least a 1/4 inch piece daily.
