winter citrus smoothie
-adapted from Love and Lemons Sunshine Smoothie
1 peeled orange (i also love grapefruit if you enjoy tart)
1 peeled knob of ginger - amount to your liking - about ½ inch
1 cup milk - i prefer almond or hemp milk, coconut is also good
½-1 peeled banana - frozen or fresh
½-1 tsp turmeric (or ½ inch peeled fresh - gives it such a vibrant orange color+good for you)
2-3 tablespoons humming hemp seeds
combine+blend til smooth. add a handful of fresh or frozen greens if you like, however, know it will change the color of your smoothie to brown but still delicious
from our heart, for yours,
