How many times have you heard a friend, relative, or co-worker tell you to drink a glass of ginger ale to sooth a sour tummy? Well, I would be willing to bet, more than a few times. However, I say screw ginger ale, that’s just a sugary drink masked with the words “ginger and ale”. Instead, get your booty to the store and buy the real thing! Fresh ginger is like my secret weapon for tummy aches. I always keep it on hand, and any time I feel my digestion going south, I cut off a tiny piece, chew, swallow and then follow with a glass of water. Works every time. – Callie England
- 2 cups of carrots
- 1 apple (cored)
- thumb size amount of ginger, peeled
- 2 T almond yogurt
- sweetener of choice (I use stevia)
- water to blend
- 2 or more handfuls of ice
Blend all ingredients (except ice) in a high speed blender until mixture is smooth. Once smooth, add ice cubes and continuing blending.
Pour into glasses and enjoy!
