  • Optional: 1 handful baby spinach or greens of choice


Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

Nutritional analysis per serving (1½ cups): calories 400, fat 31 g, saturated fat 4 g, cholesterol 0 mg, fiber 7 g, protein 13 g, carbohydrate 19 g, sodium 30 mg

Ginger Smoothie Health Benefits

This smoothie is great to drink in the morning to get your body into fat-burning mode while providing it with essential nutrients.

Gingerhelps your body with digestion and is naturally anti-inflammatory. You could also substitute fresh turmeric.

Almond butteris a source of healthy fatandprovides the satiation factor. It also contains a good dose of Manganese,which helps to regulate blood sugar and metabolism.

Greenslike spinach are nutritionally dense, so adding them to your smoothies is a great way to work them into your diet. Spinach is high in iron and other minerals, and has little no taste, making it great for smoothies. Or, experiement with other greens and see which you like.

    I’m curious as to the nutritional analysis on Dr. Humans recipes. This is not the first recipe that I have found to be higher than when I have checked the ingredients.

    Love fresh ginger and love Mark Hyman. I did a review of “Eat Fat, Get Thin” on my blog back in early March. Great book! I have followed those principals for years and have no trouble maintaining a healthy weight. I had fresh ginger blended with a whole lime and three large handfuls of baby arugula yesterday. Loved it! There is always fresh ginger in my fridge. Don’t like fresh turmeric as much, but trying to learn.
