Strawberry Banana Ginger Smoothie

gm_smoothie3I’m a big fan of smoothies. They taste like you’re eating dessert, but feel like you’re doing good for your body. This guy is creamy, hearty, and fruity – a great combination for helping the winter blues. I adapted the recipe from the What Katie Ate cookbook which my sister gave me a couple of years back. If you haven’t looked it through before, it’s a must-see for food photographers. Her images are beautiful, and recipes delicious!

The recipe calls for:

– 7 or so fresh or frozen strawberries

– 1 banana

– 1/2 cup milk of your choice

– 7 ounces plain Greek yogurt

– 1/2 teaspoon of ground or grated ginger

– 1 tablespoon of honey or agave

– optional – a small handful of ice if you want it extra cold

Throw it all into a blender and chug-a-lug!
