Creamy Green Citrus Smoothie

I think I’ve said it a million times before, but I am obsessed with smoothies. I love that I can pack them with nutrition, and whip them up in just minutes. Plus they taste great!
This is the one I’ve been having lately. I like to put so much fresh ginger in it that my ears pop. That’s right, my ears pop—no joke. Side note: I wouldn’t put it in your smoothie, but you can get oil of oregano in capsules, and I highly recommend that if you’ve been wishing your ears would pop lately. I’ve heard that oil of oregano can deplete your good gut flora though, so after a round of it I always go crazy with the probiotics and homemade yogurt. But back to the smoothie…
I make these extra peppy by adding lemon and orange zest. Like the ginger, it’s really up to you how much to use. Start with a teaspoon of each and go up from there. I add the hemp seeds for protein so I’m not hungry again five minutes later. You can’t really taste the hemp with all the citrus.

    Can’t wait to try this. Can you also let me know where to buy the vanilla egg powder in some of your other smoothies.
