This smoothie has an amazing flavor. Don't try this with powdered ginger, the flavor is just not the same. Okay, you can try it with 1/8 teaspoon of ground ginger, but the flavor really explodes with the fresh stuff. This recipe has no dairy products in it, great for vegans.
- 1⁄2 cup orange juice
- 1⁄4 cup pineapple juice
- 1⁄2 banana
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 teaspoon grated fresh gingerroot
- 1⁄2 cup crushed ice or 2 small ice cubes
- Add all ingredients to blender and process until smooth.
Fresh ginger gives this smoothie a BIG kick! I toned it down using crystalized ginger that I pulverized in the blender. I also prefer smoothies made with frozen banana, which you might want to try. I buy a couple bunches of bananas when they're on sale, slice them into 1 inch chunks and freeze 1 portion/1 banana in a zip-lock bag... then I can add the frozen banana to my smoothies whenever I feel the urge! It's economical and easy (you can reuse the zip lock bags for your next batch of bananas too!).
