Spicy sunrise smoothie

When I wake up in the morning, I go straight for the blender.  My morning smoothie gives me energy and gets my digestion going with plenty of plant protein, healthy fat and complex carbohydrates that slowly release energy into my bloodstream throughout the day.

Ingredients

Peel the dark part of the orange peel off and leave the soft white portion.  Then chop it up and place it on the blades of the blender so that the blending process can begin smoothly.  Then the banana, then the oil, then everything else.  Once the blender has blended up the banana and the orange, it will have some speed going and can power through the seeds etc.

Peel and slice the ginger thinly so that you don’t wind up with chunks of pulp.  Even the most powerful blenders aren’t able to chop up the stringy fibers in ginger root.
