Sounds delicious and do-able especially w/o a juicer. I am concerned about the carbs and sugar. Seems like a lot of each for a healthful drink.
Hey Maria! The numbers on a label don’t tell you as much as the INGREDIENTS do. The carbs & sugar come naturally from healthy sources – banana & apple. The high fiber count (7 grams) allows it to digest slowly for a steady stream of energy. Hope you give it a try!
I really want to try this, but I am just not a huge fan of ginger–can I eliminate it or use something in its place?
Hey Kris! You can omit it, but GINGER is just so good for your digestion! Even if you don’t love it…try adding a tiny bit. TIP: Buy ginger, grate all of it & freeze little teaspoons piles of it in the freezer to pop into smoothies. Still don’t like it…try fresh mint instead, it’s also good for digestion.

Wow! I am in the WOW club. Will make the green ginger smoothie as well as the spinach with Parmesan.
I’m am allergic to bananas. ..what’s a good substitute?
You can use 3/4 cup of your favorite fruit instead of a banana such as frozen mango or berries. And if you are looking for some more fun fruit & veggie blender drinks, check out this Get Juiced! booklet: https://dawnjacksonblatner.com/shop/get-juiced-super-charged-nutrition-fresh-from-your-blender/
