I tried this recipe this morning and we decided it was delicious. A nurse prescribed a teaspoonful of ginger for my husband and myself each day. This is supposed to be beneficial for cholesterol. This recipe makes it taste nice.

This smoothie has a very mild flavor almost bland for my taste. The ginger flavor is very subtle. Since the consistency is not that of a smoothie you must add 2-3 ice cubes to thicken it up. Read More

This was okay. I used orange juice because the orange made it way too pulpy and thick. The ginger makes it interesting. I think I'll stick to fruit and juice smoothies. Read More

I was very intrigued by this recipe since I really like Orange and Ginger. But I just couldn't bring myself to put "powdered" ginger in it. So I steeped 1 Tablespoon of grated ginger in 1 cup of Lactose Free milk for about 5 minutes cooled and strained out th ginger. I added that to 1 cup vanilla yogurt. I also added 2 bananas and 6 ice cubes as suggested by another reviewer. I really like it. My husband said it was "o.k." I give it a 5 my way. Read More

I like ginger and I like banana orange smoothies. I guess I just don't like them all together. This also needs to have something frozen added to it to make it refreshingly cold. I don't normally like ice in a smoothie preferring to use frozen fruit instead but I blended some in to this smoothie after the fact just to see if it would make a difference. It did make it more refreshing but the ginger is overpowering and I just couldn't get past that. Read More

I doubled this recipe. My bananas were frozen and because I didn't have soy milk I used lowfat milk and a half teaspoon of vanilla. I threw in a quarter cup of wheat germ. A doubled recipe was more than enough for my two boys and I. Read More
