Start your morning off Right!....Antioxidant Blueberry-Ginger-Green Smoothie!

Who doesn't want to start the day with a heart healthy meal or drink?  For me, smoothies are a complete morning meal.  You may need a healthy snack an hour or two later, but generally, this smoothie is filling, super healthy and delicious!

The combination of blueberries, ginger, celery and spinach makes this smoothie a powerhouse!  The list of this combo can go on for quite some time.  But, overall, each and every ingredient in this drink is a super powerful antioxidant.

 Antioxidant Blueberry-Ginger-Green Smoothie!

This is especially great if you are pressed for time.  All you need to do is grab your fruit and veggies and blend!

If you are hesitant about the ginger aspect, don't be!  It gives the drink such a soothing feel and has an abundance of health benefits.  All I ask is to try it at least once.  I promise you won't regret it!  (especially if you are experiencing bloating, cramping or an upset tummy!)

This is just the beginning of some great drinks.  My juicer comes back home soon (was lent to some good friends) and cannot be more excited! 

Ingredients/Directions (yields 2 large smoothies)
1/2-3/4 pint blueberries
2 celery stalks (rinsed and cut into chunks)
2 handful of baby spinach
1 tbsp grated ginger
1/4 (or less- depending on desired consistency) coconut water  (you can substitute just water)
ice do your liking

Blend the above ingredients and enjoy!!!  Great way to start your day!
