We’ve had a few little tastes of spring this winter–several days of 50 and 60 degree sunny weather, which I’ve thoroughly enjoyed! And on one of those days, I made this smoothie. It has a rich blueberry flavor and the fresh ginger gives it an energizing zing. It’s a pretty thick smoothie, so you’ll probably want to use a straw when you drink this. Even if the weather isn’t warm and sunny, it’s still a wonderful smoothie to make!

It’s so nice having a little touch of spring weather to break up the winter blahs. The weather did get cold again, but now it’s starting to warm up some more…so I’m sure I’ll be making more smoothies! They remind me of spring and summer because I make them often during the warm weather seasons–my favorite times of the year! Are you looking forward to spring as much as I am?
