Greeeeeeen smoothie time

The first thing I consume every morning is a quart of water.  After that, I like to have something light and nutritious to satisfy and energize me until the next meal.  Usually this is a smoothie, a juice or a salad.  My current favorite green smoothie recipe (below) is warming, hydrating, delicious and packs a major nutrient punch.  (For more info about the benefits of green smoothies, go here.)

Gingerberry Shake
  •  2 cups (or more!) spinach, baby or mature
  • 1 cup frozen wild blueberries (antioxi-daaaaance!  shimmy shimmy!)
  • 1 cup coconut water, preferably fresh
  • 2 inches vanilla bean, scraped (or 1-2 tsp. vanilla extract)
  • small knob fresh, peeled ginger root
  • handful of ice
Pop it in the blender, and voila!

SO YUM!  It's like sunshine in a glass!
