Better than having an espresso shot Topic


Better than having an espresso shot, this 500 calorie smoothie?s brain stimulating bioactive ingredients like gingerols? curcumin, shogaol and zingeberine from fresh ginger (or Zingiber officinale), in my opinion, will make you feel just as alert. Ginger can prevent cognitive decline.

1 cup raw spinach
1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 tbsp coconut palm sugar ??
1/2 banana
1 tbsp whole sour cream

(Adding whole versus fat free sour cream can provide a source of both cholesterol and some necessary fat to enable vegetarians to absorb these fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K in this smoothie).
