Key Lime Ginseng Ginger Smoothie Caliente
A really deliciously different blend of flavors that are great any time, including the coldest night of the winter on which I first whipped this up. Although the name says lime, it's really the lime-less combo of lemon, orange, avocado, and ginger which make you swear it's got lime in it.
For those who prefer sweet over spicy, just omit the pepper, and add more sweet. : )
Avocado may sound weird, but it gives the nice thick consistency of the key lime pie in smoothie form.
juice from 1 (meyers) lemon
juice of 2 oranges or tangerines, etc.
2 teaspoons of honey
a 3 to 4" chunk of ginger root, peeled
1/4 to 1/2 habanero pepper, depending on your hot threshold
a thick pinch of ginseng roots-probably about a heaping tablespoon
1 cup almond milk, or your favorite milk
2 heaping tablespoons shelled hemp seeds
Add all ingredients to blender and blend til smooth n thick.
Drink slowly and savor the flavor.
