Orange Ginger

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz baby spinach
  • 2 tangerines - peeled
  • 1 banana - peeled
  • 1/2 inch ginger
  • 1 tbsp mesquite
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Often used to treat digestive issues or travel-related nausea, ginger is also a potent anti-inflammatory. In fact, daily consumption of ginger may reduce gym-related muscle soreness. Mesquite powder is a natural sweetener that adds a caramel-like flavor without any extra sugar, and hemp seed is a fantastic vegan source of Omega-3s. Blend up those plant-based superfoods with nutritious spinach (vitamins A and K), tangerines (vitamin C and folate), and bananas (iron, potassium and fiber), and you’ll look as renewed and refreshed as if you’ve just come home from a tropical retreat.
