I am officially weird. This morning I made a green smoothie and got all excited about it! Look at these great ingredients:

Baby kale and spinach

Frozen mango

Frozen cherries

Banana

Flax seed

Coconut

Dates for sweetener

And the best part….Fresh ginger

Deliciousness in a glass. I have to admit it’s not very pretty once it’s blended.

It’s actually more brown than green. But we’re calling it “green” because of the greens!

But like many good books, you can’t judge this smoothie by its looks or the fact that it coordinates with the browns in our counter. It is utterly great tasting and I happily gulped 4 cups of greens with the yumminess of fresh ginger. Ahhhhhh, ginger. So lemony and fresh tasting. Plus it has anti-inflammatory benefits. That’s a win-win, folks!
