Get Me Going Smoothie

It is a low glycemic, gluten free, dairy free smoothie that actually has a creamy texture.

1 avocado
1 T fresh ginger root pressed (use garlic press)
¼ C light Agava syrup
¾ C spinach leaves
¾ C kale leaves
2 apples peeled (medium sized)
1 C strawberries (fresh or frozen)
12 frozen cherries
1/3 C blueberries (fresh or frozen)
8 oz water + 1 C ice if using fresh fruit
12 oz water if using pre-frozen mix.


Blend for 1-3 minutes depending on blender capacity and speed.  (We set our Ninja blender on 6 and let it go about 90 seconds.)  Makes three 12 oz glasses and keeps in fridge for up to 36 hours.

Try pre-making the smoothie mix and freezing it.  Mix everything but the avocado, ginger, and syrup – those need to be added fresh. Freezer bags store nicely for several weeks.
