Make Me Whole Again: Apple, Honey and Ginger Smoothie

ahgsYou know how you get that alert that you’re getting a cold? Your throat gets scratchy and you feel a little tired? And if you’re really lucky, you can fend it off with your favorite home remedy?

I wasn’t so lucky this time. I was knocked on my rear end Wednesday night by the most miserable bug I think I’ve ever had. I’m tired and achy and congested. I needed something loaded with health to knock this bug out, and I think I found it in my newest smoothie creation.

Apple, Honey and Ginger Smoothie
1/2 granny smith apple
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 cup almond milk
5-6 pieces of ice

1. Place ingredients in your blender in the order listed.
2. Begin on low and slowly increase speed to high until you reach the desired consistency.
3. Pour it in a container that is bed-proof and go back into hibernation.

This smoothie was so delicious. The fresh ginger bit right through my severe congestion and immediately soothed my throat. And the combination of the almond milk and the apple! Wow! Just wow!

Instead of honey and ginger, I used 2 tbsp of Honey Ginger Tea that I get at the local Asian market. If you have one close by, I highly recommend this concoction. It’s great by itself in hot water, or as an addition to your favorite tea.

If you don’t like almond milk, you can use yogurt and water, regular milk, or soy milk.

If you’ve been around me lately, I am truly sorry if I unknowingly infected you. If you are far away, consider yourself very lucky!
