IP-18: smoothie of the day

alternative title: ginger (a grape alternative)

for those of us who'd like to enjoy vibrant health, but haven't yet gotten fully into "juicing," wIe can keep it simple with smoothies.

today's ginger (a grape alternative) smoothie was made with:

* 1 banana
* several chunks of frozen mango
* 3 carrots
* orange juice
* 1/2 lemon
* thumbnail-plus size of ginger
* frozen strawberries

vary the amount of the above ingredients for more an effect

1. put ingredients in blender
2. press "play" (taste test by scooping & slurping a spoonful off of the top, while it's blending)
3. pour into a frozen mug

* makes several delicious servings, needs no sweeteners (no ice cream, no yogurt). ..very, very filling.

* smoothies allow us to consume the pulp (and glean its fiber). ..juicers remove the pulp, giving you more vitamins/minerals per ounce, but i've found it hard to "throw away" the pulp.'ll need a compost thigamajig if you really want to juice without waste.
