How is your “day one” of being back in your “normal” routine going? Mine was a bit slow to start but is going well.

Remember this week to be kind to yourself.

Just take each day one at a time and make loving choices (to read more about how to have a gentle start to this year go here).

One way I jumped back into my routine today was to get back into my daily smoothie. I wanted to create something new today using some of my leftover Holiday produce.

It turned out awesome!

Ohhhhh, I am loving today’s ginger smoothie! It is warming, energizing, and invigorating!

It is a cross between Chimes Orange Ginger Chews & an Original Orange Julius.

I am in love!

It is warm, creamy, sweet & spicy. And this Energizing Orange & Ginger Smoothie recipe is also vegan, gluten free, grain free, dairy free, high fibre, packed with vitamins and nutrients.

If you love ginger check out the recipes below:

The recipe below is flexible and can be altered to your taste. Use less or more ginger as you enjoy! Remember starting out with less is always a safe bet. You can add more from there. If you know you love ginger feel free to use the full amount.
