Like many of you, I am a big fan of ginger, so this delightful, pungent root is the star ingredient in
my groovy green ginger berry smoothie.
Among its many health benefits, ginger contains a substance called 6-gingerol, which may have
protective effects against cancer.
In addition, ginger is loaded with nutrients and bio-active compounds that have powerful benefits
for your body and brain.
Ginger has been used for centuries to aid digestion, reduce nausea and inflammation, and to help
fight the flu and common cold.
I also love to try new vegan shake recipes, so when I saw these 10 healthy and tasty vegan and
vegetarian smoothies below, I just had to share them with you.
Let’s shake things up in the kitchen with these healthy and delicious shake and smoothie recipes.
