Recipe: Apple, Cucumber, Ginger, Lemon Smoothie

RecipeRecipe

A hydrating and delicious smoothie with some zing.

Ginger is a great antioxidant to fight inflammation.  The addition of the apple, cucumber, spinach, and flax helps adds to create a healthy, nutritious, and unique flavor you will love.  The best thing is that each serving has less than 150 calories.
