Blueberry and Ginger Smoothie
It was a freezing cold winter day, and it certainly is not typical for me to come home after work and decide to make a shake for dinner. On this particular day however, I was guilty of having eaten a large taco salad late in the day. So, not starving but feeling rather guilty, I think I wanted to redeem myself, nutritionally. A great and quick way to do that is with a blueberry and ginger smoothie. Made of non-fat yogurt, frozen blueberries, freshly grated ginger and sweetened with honey, it a delicious way to end the day feeling good about yourself.
1/2 inch piece of fresh organic ginger, grated
2/3 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt (or about a 6oz. container)
2 tsp honey
1 small organic banana, sliced
1/2 cup 2% milk
1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries (or frozen fruit of your choice)
Place all ingredients in a blender, and blend on high until smooth.
Yield: 1 serving
