Summary

Naturally sweet blueberries, zesty ginger and earthy greens make a refreshing and energizing smoothie to jumpstart your morning or invigorate your afternoon. Use any greens you have on hand, and if strong-flavored greens are growing in your garden (such as dandelion or kale), decrease the bitterness by adding more blueberries for sweetness or ginger for added zing!
