Ginger is my favorite Asian root vegetable and I use it in so many recipes, so I had to make a summer drink with it.  Here’s a healthy and refreshing summer smoothie with fresh strawberries flavored with a kick of ginger, lemon and lime.

Ingredients:

  • Fresh Strawberries (2 lbs.)
  • Ginger (3-4 inches, peeled)
  • Lemon (juice of 2 lemons)
  • Lime (juice of 1 lime)
  • Honey (3 tablespoons)
  • Ice (2 trays of ice)
  • Water (1 cup)

6) Add 1 tray of ice and blend again for like 5 seconds to get it cold (no longer than that).  The ice will melt pretty quickly from the blender.

    Moon, that sounds wonderful. Ginger is my favorite also, and that would be just what I need for this cough that won’t go away.
