Made this at the cottage this past weekend, using fresh blueberries, and two frozen bananas. It made a healthy and delicious start to the day. I forgot to bring the hempseed along, so look forward to trying it with that next time. The ginger gives a delicious zip, too! Thanks, Syd! Made for veggie swap 24.
Wow a tasty drink with antioxidants and omegas. The ginger does give a nice zing that is mellowed by the banana. DH said he liked and was surprised that strawberries and ginger went so well together. Thanks for the post.
This smoothie really does have a zing! I really liked the ginger in this recipe! Very fresh tasting. I did not have hemp seeds so left that out. I added a tablespoon of soy protein powder. This really gave me some energy. I will make this again!
Three stars for health benefits of ginger, flax seed and fruit, but just not so much my taste.
Such a nutrient-dense and healthy drink! I kind of fudged the amounts. Didn't have quite enough ginger, so I make kind of roughly 2/3 of the recipe as a tall smoothie for one. I only used a TBSP each of the seeds. Especially loved the hemp here- such a satisfying crunchiness! Thanks for posting!
I'm giving this 4 stars only because of my personal taste. Because of all the yummy seeds blended up in this delicious fruity smoothie, the texture for me personally was a little too viscous for my liking. I always put a TBSP of flax in my smoothies, but I think 1/8 cup flax was a little too much for me. Made this with balckberries, and I LOVED the fresh ginger!
I like this smoothie for the benefits that come from ginger and flax. But, the taste of ginger really came thru too strong for my liking. I ended up adding one packet of splenda to sweeten things up a bit. Now, this is just me, and so if you have a yen for ginger, this would be the recipe. I used 1 cup of frozen raspberries and 1 frozen banana. One cup of water was enough to make this the right consistency. All in all I"m glad I tagged as this made a great lunch along with some yogurt/granola. Made for 123Hits.~
A very nice and healthy drink, great for a nutritious start to your day! I didn't have hemp seeds so used extra flax seed. Thanks Syd!
Loved this. . .had it for breakfast. I regularly use ginger in my veggie juices, but never in my fruit juices/smoothies. I used strawberries which worked great. Thanks for a healthy drink! Made for Veg*n tag #4.
