Ohhhhhhh my goodness. It's hard to explain just how tasty this smoothie is. I was a little iffy the first time I tried it because all I smelled when I took the first sip was ginger. But WOW. It's so, so yummy! I added the recipe to my recipe box on MyFitnessPal - it's a bit high in carbs and sugar, but low in calories with lots of protein and potassium! Hope everyone enjoys this as much as I do! :)
