Tangy Orange & Ginger Smoothie
1 cup water
Handful of ice (about 6-8 cubes)
1 medium hunk of fresh ginger- peeled
1 Tablespoon ground turmeric
1 lemon- juice
1 large orange- peeled ( I used a Cara Cara orange)
- option to top with Cayenne Pepper
Place all ingredients in high powered blender and blend on the highest setting for about 60 seconds. You want to make sure the ginger is completely broken down!
*Please note: This smoothie recipe has a very bold flavor, it’s bright, sparky and refreshing, but if you’re not familiar with these ingredients, it might take a few sips to get used to!
