But before I share my “Ginger Vanilla Frosty” recipe with you, let’s talk ginger. Fresh, spicy, and pungent ginger!

Did you know…

  • Ginger is an herb? (that is new to me!)
  • Helps prevent motion sickness (even better than over the counter products!)
  • Helps promote sweating (perfect during flu season to detoxify quicker!)
  • Settles an upset stomach and intestinal gas
  • …and very effective for morning sickness!

Ginger also…

  • Has high anti-inflammatory benefits
  • Big booster for your immune system
  • Can be used fresh, powdered, juiced, or dehydrated!

Let’s hear it for the ginger!

Now you may begin today’s smoothie celebration! Let’s give a big shout-out for…

GINGER VANILLA FROSTY! 

1. Make fresh almond milk
1/2 cup raw almonds
1 1/2 – 2 cups water

– blend nuts and water in high-speed blender (Click HERE to see what blender I use!)
– add more water or almonds to desired taste
– straining the nut milk is not necessary – the pulp adds fiber!

 1/2  vanilla bean, scraped or 1 tsp vanilla (alcohol-free)
