 1 medium apple, juiced, or peeled and cored.*or 3/4 cup apple juice
 1 small lemon, juiced(47g)
 ½ cup ice cubes
 2 to 3 inches of fresh ginger root, peeled(24g)
 1 tbsp raw honey
What To Do

Juice one medium apple and add the juice to your blender. Alternatively, you can do one of the following: Peel the apple, cut it into slices and remove the core. Add the peeled and sliced apple. OR, simply add 3/4 cup of good quality apple juice.


Add the juice of one small lemon.


Cut a 2" - 3" piece of fresh ginger and carefully peel off the husk. Add it in.


Add 1 tablespoon of raw honey to sweeten the lemon.


Finally, add the ice and blend everything for at least a full minute to break up the fibers of the ginger root.


You can pour the blended smoothie through a sieve or just pour it, well blended, directly into 2 glasses. Ginger root fibers can take a little getting used to if you're not already accustomed to having them in your smoothie.
