    Karen in Gotham's Note:

    Vita-Mix developed this recipe for the Komen Northeast Ohio Race for the Cure ® (although I don't know exactly when). This recipe can probably be made in a conventional blender, but if you can fit a Vita-Mix into your budget and are serious about food and health, by all means do so (and no, I have no affiliation with them); among its many virtues, it can tear through icy jobs like nobody's business. I made my own modifications, which appear in parentheses. This smoothie has myriad health benefits which I won't list here, some of which can be viewed by following this link: http://www.vitamix.com/household/infocenter/race.html. The ginger, BTW, is crucial to this recipe--it really adds a punch! Seedless black grapes will give a spicier, somewhat less sweet result and frozen fruit can be substituted for all or part of the ice if desired.
