This morning, I was none too excited about my breakfast options. I just didn’t feel like oatmeal or granola cereal with almond milk. Luckily, I came across a post from Becky of Glue and Glitter for her Orange Ginger Dream Green Smoothie. I decided to give it a try and it was just what I need to break my breakfast routine. Becky actually has a book called 40 Days of Green Smoothies which contains more of her smoothie recipes. I might be giving it a try.
Here is my version of Becky’s recipe. I did make a few substitutions. Her recipe called for an orange…I only have clementines. Also, I added local honey (my sweet tooth), used a lot less ginger (a little was all I needed) and used almond milk instead of soy milk.
