Lemon and ginger is a classic combination so why not incorporate it in to a green shake.
This is a an elaboration to the last Green Shake recipe and changing out a few things to make this shake have a subtile lemon and ginger flavour. The lemon is there when you first taste it and then there is a refreshing ginger hint at the end of the shake.
The only thing I will mention is that ginger is hard to break down in a bender so I would blend this for double the normal time to make sure I don’t have any ginger chunks in there.
For a pint of shake you need:
200ml of orange juice, I use this to add sweetness and extra nutrition.
1 lemon, I just cut the rind and skin off then chuck in the whole fruit.
1 green apple, again for sweetness and getting more fruit in there.
Around 150g of spinach, the main star of the shake.
1tbsp of fresh ginger, either chopped finely or grated.
1tsp of maple syrup, optional if you have a real sweet tooth.
Dump in a blender and blend, couldn’t be simpler.
