Ingredients

  • 1 nub ginger root
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 handful of spinach

Directions

Toss ingredients into blender and blend until liquid has reached desired texture. The more you mince the ginger before adding it in, the less bits you’ll have to crunch on once it’s all blended up.

Ginger Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Ginger Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
