Creamy Dreamy Tropical Ginger Smoothie- Day 6 – Seven Days of Smoothies

Day six will take you to a warm paradise with the pineapple and ginger in this smoothie! Fresh ginger is wonderful for digestion, has antiviral properties, is anti-inflammatory, and is a warming food. The frozen banana makes this a creamy sweet smoothie, and the fresh lemon juice brightens the flavors.

Tropical Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream

It’s Mother’s Day weekend! If my Mama lived closer, I would make her this delicious Tropical Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream for dessert, because it is absolutely delicious, and also because it has nutrient rich ingredients that will make her skin glow and benefit her body!

I have to admit, I am passionate about Matcha. I started drinking it years ago because of the rich green tea flavor! I love the taste, and the health benefits were an added bonus! Matcha is packed full of antioxidants, and even though it contains caffeine, it calms and relaxes the body while it energizes. It contains high levels of chlorophyll, vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium. If that wasn’t enough, there are EGCG’s in Matcha that lower blood sugar and cholesterol. Matcha detoxifies, increases metabolism, boosts memory and concentration, and is disease and cancer preventative. Wow! Who doesn’t want all that?

Okay, so that is one of the ingredients in this creamy, tropical ice cream. I also added pineapple, mango, lemon juice (Vitamins A and C), and avocado which all beautify your skin! There is coconut milk and coconut oil for healthy fat (along with the avocado). The avocado adds extra creaminess with a neutral flavor, and finally natural honey. So, let’s eat ice cream in a very healthy way!
