Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach about two large handfuls
  • 1 orange, peeled medium-large size
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks, frozen
  • 1 piece fresh ginger, peeled (see note 1) 1.5-2 inch length or about 10g
  • 2 tablespoons hemp hearts optional
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds optional
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed optional
  • stevia extract optional, or honey if not vegan

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. It will take at least a minute to ensure the ginger is fully blended. Serve immediately or pour into mason jars with lids and store in the refrigerator. Consume within a day.

Notes

  1. If you don't have a high-speed blender, I suggest grating or mincing the ginger before adding it to the smoothie. Even with my Vitamix, it takes some time for the ginger to be broken down. The smoothie could have an unpleasant texture if bigger pieces/strings remain. 
  2. Nutrition estimate includes all ingredients except the sweetener.
