How to make this smoothie

Pour the blended smoothie mixture into individual glasses or mason jars. Top with fresh orange zest, and enjoy!
This plum smoothie is not only tasty, but it's a powerhouse of nutrients. 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.
