kiwi kumquat ginger smoothie recipe

Kiwi Ginger

Ingredients

  • 1 pear - chopped
  • 2 kiwis - peeled
  • 1 zucchini - chopped
  • 1/2 inch ginger
  • 3 tbsp cashews
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Gingerols, the compounds found in ginger root that have proven, potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, are the main reasons ginger is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Add in extra antioxidants from kiwis, and healthy fat and protein from cashews, and you have a creamy, nutritious smoothie that is not only good for chasing away colds, but for keeping your joints healthy as well.

Love antioxidants? Try our Kumquat Cantaloupe smoothie, or our Pineapple Kumquat Passion smoothie.
