The Perfect Plum Ginger Smoothie

The Perfect Plum Ginger Smoothie is not what you’d expect in a smoothie. It uses a combination of ingredients that give this drink a creamy, slightly sweet yet spicy taste. I’ve enjoyed it as a light breakfast before exercise or as a snack in between meals. It’s not only tasty, but it’s a powerhouse of nutrients giving me what my body needs.

Vitamin C-rich orange boosts energy and immunity. At the same time, the antioxidant-rich plum skin helps to lower inflammation and stop free radicals oxidative damage—the ginger aids in digestion and balances out the sweetness of the plum and orange. Using unsweetened almond milk (or other plain unsweetened plant-based milk) gives it a nice creaminess.

Sersie and I came up with this delightful, not-what-you’d-expect smoothie while we were in Atlanta. In addition to this surprisingly yummy drink, we also developed Perfect Pear and Kale SmoothieHoneydew Blackberry Mango Smoothie, and Energizing Tropical Fruit Smoothie Bowl.

The Perfect Plum Ginger Smoothie has 4 key ingredients:

  1. Plum
  2. Orange
  3. Ginger
  4. Unsweetened almond milk

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
