Ginger Root and Lemon Smoothie

This ginger root, lemon, and apple smoothie will help aid digestion, calm your stomach and get you hooked on how delicious it is! It’s easy to make, too. All you need is a blender and a few easy to find ingredients. Ginger lemon smoothies really hit the spot!

The original recipe calls for a freshly juiced apple. A juicer isn’t mandatory (but it definitely helps). Just toss a peeled and cored apple into your blender and blend! Alternatively, you can also use apple juice from a jug or from frozen concentrate. Delicious and healthy!
