Green Ginger Smoothie.

December 4, 2012 Post a comment

This is truly one of the best smoothies I’ve ever had – and I’ve had a lot of smoothies!  Sunday night my husband wanted to finally try out our new Vitamix machine and we had a late lunch so, the smoothie sounded light and delicious.  It was and I recreated it today for my girls and again, the lovefest continued!


1 cup of orange juice
1 green apple, skin on yet cored
1 large handful of organic baby spinach (about 1 heaping cup of the leaves)
1/2 of a pineapple, peeled but not cored if using a Vitamix (if using a blender then core it)
1-2 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled
1 scoop of protein powder (vanilla)
1/4 cup of vanilla Chobani yogurt
8 ice cubes


Place all of the ingredients into your Vitamix or blender and blend on the smoothie setting.  Pour into glasses and enjoy!  The ginger puts this one over the top!  Fresh and ginger is so good for your stomach.  Vitamin and protein packed.  And, I swear, your kids won’t even suspect that there’s spinach in there!

First, I’m jealous of your Vitamix. Second – YUM! I love ginger. I’m going to have to try this IMMEDIATELY (even if it’s in my sub-par blender) ; )

Gail, My family cannot stop eating these! I love it too because I reduced the sugar (not needed) and the fat (minus the second stick of butter) and added valuable protein with the Chobani. Pop back after you make them and let me know what you think!

If you freeze the pineapple and/or the OJ you don’t have to water the whole thing down with ice cubes. I’m LOVING fruit in my freezer. Especially bananas

I have a bunch of bananas in my freezer. Love it!
