crystallized ginger for garnishoptional
Combine all of the ingredients, except the crystallized ginger, in your blender. Blend on high speed until smooth.
I love buying lots of fresh ginger when it's looking wonderful in the store. I peel the outer layer and freeze it whole in a zipper bag. It grates really nicely when frozen.This smoothie comes in well under 150 calories per serving. Whoohoo!Try adding some vodka to this to create a great frozen holiday cocktail! About 1.5 to 2 ounces per serving would be perfect. Cheers!
