The ginger and cinnamon may sound unusual, but they both add great flavor and nutrients. Here's your simple ingredient list.
- Kale: If you need a vitamin boost after an indulging weekend or week, kale is the ideal place to start. A handful of kale gives you a mega-boost of vitamins that you can't beat. It's the ultimate superfood.

- Frozen Banana: Banana has potassium which is great for sore muscles.
- Almond Milk: Use any non-dairy milk you like but low calorie almond milk is always a great choice.
- Ginger: Fresh ginger gives this smoothie a bit of spice, but it adds lot's of detox qualities! It both sooths the stomach and is anti-inflammatory.
- Cinnamon: A bit of cinnamon adds some anti-inflammatory qualities to the smoothie.
This combination of flavors is not only good for you but tastes amazing too! It's remarkable how the sweet frozen fruit completely hides the flavor of the kale. You'd never know this was good for you!
