Add all ingredients to blender in the order listed, and blend thoroughly on high speed until completely smooth. If it isn’t quite blending, add a bit more water or almond milk.
Let blend for a good 1-2 minutes on high so everything gets very well blended together, especially the ginger.
Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding a bit more frozen banana or sweetener of choice for added sweetness, lime juice for acidity, or coconut milk for creaminess.
Serve immediately. Store leftovers in refrigerator for up to 24 hours, though best when fresh.
*For spinach and kale, I like to buy mine pre-washed and bagged and keep it in the freezer. That way it stays fresh and is always available when I’m craving a smoothie. It also helps keep the smoothie colder and slightly more creamy. *Recipe from Minimalist Baker's Everyday Cooking Cookbook. *Nutrition information is a rough estimate.
