It looks yummy. I love ginger. I make ginger tea for me daily.
Will definitely try this out!
Thanks for sharing!
I think that you will like this very much considering that you already like ginger tea. Do let me know.
Hello Dr. Elise,
This is the first time I am hearing about ginger smoothie and it looks awesome ( by image wise) and I am sure it tastes delicious too. We use ginger mostly in our tea and for vegetable curry, and sometimes for medication too , but never tried it in smoothie.
I love Ginger for every purpose that you have just referenced. The addition to the smoothie offers an awesome wake me up, anti-inflammatory benefits and more. I hope that you will enjoy.
That sounds really yummy, and here in the UK I’m very close to a supermarket where I’m pretty sure I can get all those ingredients. Sound a much better start to my day than my current porridge – which is starting to get a bit boring.
Funnily enough just a couple of weeks ago I was watching a series on UK TV about sugar making your fat, not fat. It’s a message I’ve come across before, and it’s very appealing!
Thanks for reminding me about Dr Hyman’s book.

You are so welcome. I often believe that we are exposed to messages and circumstances at the exact time we are meant to be. Perhaps this is your time.
This looks delicious! Can’t wait to use this. I make ginger tea with fresh ginger and green tea every morning.
I also know that it is sugar and not fat that makes us fat
To the top
You absolutely have it dialed in. How very wonderful. Please do let me know your thoughts on the smoothie after you try it.
Ginger spice smoothie… it looks deliciously doable! I will try it for sure! It’s been increasingly difficult to find protein powders without any kind of sweetener, and the pea protein we’ve been getting seems to have been discontinued at our local health food store. Maybe a coconut milk or almond milk base will be a good substitute.
Willena, you can try a hemp protein or a rice protein if you are not happy with what you have been using. Almond milk will make a perfect substitute for the base.
So true. When I went “cold turkey” on sugar almost a year ago I lost 10 pounds without trying. And I have never felt better …
Exactly. Sugar can cause so many issues from cravings to inflammation to mood swings to brain fog and more.
Hi Elise ,
this recipes sounds very good,
I like ginger and especially the nuts milk and butter.
Will go and try it .
Beautiful. Please let me know what you think of it.
Hello Elise, I did see this post shared over on FaceBook and couldnt wait to get a chance to get over to check this out.. OH Yeh I would love to learn how to eat fat to get thin LOL
Now for this recipe, sounds super yummy, but I for one have never heard of cashew milk before, Curious where would I find this at?
I am excited to give it a try..
It is a great thing to learn. Cashew milk is becoming mainstream in many supermarkets but almond milk is even more mainstream and available in your widely known grocery stores and specialty stores such as Trader Joe, Sprouts and Whole Foods. You can use either one in this recipe and get equivalent results. Enjoy.
