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.

Blueberry Ginger Smoothie

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
