Sunny Peachy Ginger Smoothie 薑味桃子鮮果思慕昔

I love adding ginger to my drinks and to my cooking. The benefits of consuming ginger are many, such as reducing inflammation, boosting your immune system, maintaining normal blood circulation, helping nausea or indigestion, and more. There are just so many good reasons to not leave it out of your diet. The fresh ginger gives the drink a little zing to pick you up, while blending perfectly with the sweet peach.

I didn't use any sugar or sweetener. Instead, I used fresh fruits to provide the sweetness. Hidden in this juice are broccoli stems--that's right, stems!--to add wholesome fibre. But trust me, you won't even taste them. They're just there to add even more nutrients and a little bit of sweetness (the desirable kind). Why throw those poor guys away? So next time you have broccoli, keep the stems. Here's the perfect way to use them!

Sunny Peachy Ginger Smoothie (2 servings)

2         peaches, peeled and cut into 6-8 wedges each

1         small apple, peeled, cored, and cut into medium chunks

1         broccoli stem

1/4 C   banana, sliced

1/2      lemon, peeled, seeded and halved

2 t       ginger, peeled and cut into small pieces

1 1/4 C coconut water

*t = tsp, C = cup


1. Trim the broccoli stems by cutting off the bottom and peeling off the outer rough part, then slice into pieces.

2. Throw everything in a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy! *Since the apples in the smoothie oxidize very quickly, I recommend drinking it right away to avoid the discolouration!

Broccoli stems - a secret power ingredient for smoothies that helps you to not waste food!
