Stocked up on bags of frozen berries from Costco, along with the frozen cranberries I have on hand, I was able to follow this recipe right on down & we had a most delicious smoothie treat! Definitely a recipe worth keeping around! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Everyday Is a Holiday tag]
Oh, WOW! I love ginger, and had some very fine crystalized ginger pieces from my last preparation, and used the very last of it that was left after making mikekey's Ginger Baked Apples. So, therefore, didn't have to use any further sweetening. A wonderful smoothie for my last day of Comfort Cafe Summer 2009! Thnx so much for posting, BakinBaby.
Very thick and rich indeed! I had to "drink" it with a spoon :) I like my smoothies really thick so that was great for me. I also found the ginger to be the prominent flavor, which I enjoyed, but this is not for someone who is unsure about liking ginger. For the green tea, I brewed Gunpowder Green Temple of Heaven type of green tea, which was strong enough to add some flavor through the rich ginger & berries - I recommend this variety of green tea here. I substituted 1/4 cup more blueberries & 1/4 cup more sliced strawberries for the 1/2 c cranberries as I couldn't find any. Thanks for posting! [Made & Reviewed for Everyday is a Holiday Tag]
