Green Raspberry Smoothie

Ingredients:

1 1/2 C spinach

1 Tbsp. peppermint

1/4-1/2 C diced cucumber

1 apple, cored and diced

1/2 in. finger fresh ginger

1/8 in.-1/4 in. finger fresh turmeric

1 1/2 C water

5 ice cubes

1 1/2 tsp. honey (I used raw Acacia honey because it was on sale)

1 C frozen raspberries

Directions:

For a layered smoothie, blend the spinach, peppermint, cucumber, ginger, turmeric, apple, ice cubes, and 1 C water until smooth.  Empty into a glass.  Wash out blender.  Put raspberries and remaining water into blender and blend until smooth (you may need more water, so don’t be afraid to add more if you do, so as to not burn out your blender’s motor).  Add to green layer.  Enjoy!
