spinach ginger smoothie

Ginger makes this spinach smoothie pop!

I’ve loved ginger since I was a kid. The smell, the taste and how it made my tummy feel good. I still feel that way about it, including using the word tummy! So, today I thought what better way to spruce up a spinach smoothie than by adding ginger and some pear (the two go together amazingly). I am pleased with the results, and if you try it, I hope you are too! Just one of the ingredients in this spinach ginger smoothie bowl helps to support healthy skin, hair and bones, as well as healthy digestion and a reduced risk of heart disease.
