Blueberry Ginger Smoothie

written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.

From Eat Your Vegetables: Bold Recipes For the Single Cook by Joe Yonan

As ginger lovers looking for a new recipe to use our freshly picked blueberries, this was perfect! Ginger adds a slightly spicy, pungent taste, which I love. It does need to be fresh ginger, not the dried ground type. The mint completes an interesting taste combination. For more healthy smoothie recipes that include fruits, vegetables and nuts, see Joe Yonan's Eat Your Vegetables book.

This one is great as a breakfast 'main course' or as a post-workout boost. Add a little milk if you prefer thinner smoothies. I've actually never made one without liquid before, but this consistency was perfect for me, between the nonfat yogurt, chopped ice cubes and banana.

Ingredients:

1 banana
1/2 cup blueberries, stemmed
1/2 cup plain low fat Greek yogurt (or lowfat, whole fat, or regular yogurt)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
4 fresh mint leaves
4 ice cubes
1 teaspoon or more honey

Directions:

Puree all ingredients except the honey in a blender until frothy and smooth. Add honey to taste.
