OK, this smoothie was DELICIOUS……seriously delicious!  Filled with just the perfect amount of ginger, it was such a refreshing, filling drink!  Shown is one serving, so there is enough to share.  I was barely able to finish one glass!

This is another recipe from the book, Whole Food Energy.  So far, it has not disappointed!
