Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie

Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie // nutritionstripped.comI think after the eventful week I’ve had here on Nutrition Stripped, it was only fitting for the first recipe to share on “the new look” of Nutrition Stripped to be a green smoothie…had to. This smoothie is also perfect for all of your green holiday celebrations this St. Patrick’s Day! My Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie is perfection, absolute nourishing perfection and so deliciously simple to make! I love this smoothie for breakfast, a snack, or even with a meal for a boost of those greens I simply adore.

Alright everyone, prepare yourself for one of the most refreshing, creamy, spring-like smoothies you’ve ever tasted. Bold statement I know, it’s that good. This is my go-to smoothie in the spring when I want something filling, but also “light” on my digestion to keep my energy levels up when I’m out and about, writing, shooting, etc. This is definitely a meal in a glass as it contains healthy fats, protein, fiber, and carbohydrates all in one lovely package- if you’re looking to make this a snack, simply cut the ingredients in half or save half for later!

    Looks good! My wife is obsessed with green smoothies, but we don’t use avocado in them. Totally going to try that next time though! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

  2. Ana says

    This looks and sounds AMAZING!!!
    It sounds very similar to my creamy avocado green smoothies as I always add ginger to them! I will try your recipe this weekend for sure!!
    Love your blog, your recipes! all amazing and always so pretty!!

    I just made this in my thermomix. It was amazing. I made sure it was ‘need a spoon consistency’ thick and topped it with some of your maple banana granola – delicious! Thank you all the way from Australia!

    This looks delicious! Do you recommend adding ice? One of my favorite things to do is experiment with smoothies and try different recipes. This looks like the perfect smoothie to make when I’m on the go! I’ve never added tahini to a smoothie before though, does it make much of a difference?

  5. Sarah says

    Looks awesome! I’m so excited to try this, I’ve been looking for a smoothie recipe with ginger.

    Nutrititon-wise, what purpose does the tahini serve? If I don’t have any on hand, can you recommend any substitutions?

    Thanks so much- I love your blog!

    :) I absolutely love this smoothie! so satisfying in every way- sweet and creamy and citrus-y AND filling!

    I’ve modified this recipe slightly as I’m a student, and therefore cheap and without a full pantry– I substitute the dates with a spoonful of honey, use a frozen banana, and trade out the tahini with 2 tbs of almond butter for extra protein (I drink it after I work out). Delicious!

    Thank you- I adore your blog. Making my own food is finally manageable!

    Im soooo glad to have been introduced to your site via choosingraw and this recipe! I topped it with maca, mesquite and frozen raspberries and it feels soooooo nourishing! Like I said, can’t wait to try more!

    Ps how much protein powder would you add? If it was vanilla protein do you reckon a whole scoop would over power the other flavours

  8. Lin says

    I’m having this right now as a dinner replacement smoothie! I I added a scoop of raw protein powder and some extra frozen banana instead of dates. It’s so creamy and I love how vibrant and green it is! I’m really digging the smoothie-as-a-meal idea and I’d love to see more recipes for hearty green smoothies! xo

  9. says

    I heart all of these ingredients! My old blender couldn’t blend dates, but hubby spoiled me with a Vitamix for Mothers Day. So I can’t wait to try this one and share it with my boys. Thanks for the recipe.

  10. Melanie says

    Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie = perfection! Absolutely tasty and loved the creamy texture. I took your high protein suggestion and added a scoop of my favorite protein. Love the balance of healthy fats, carbs, and protein to start my morning!

  11. Jen says

    I don’t understand all the comments here, I love green smoothies but this one was just odd, I can’t tell whether it was the banana, ginger or lemon that ruined it but it was terrible! What a waste of ingredients, I followed the recipe exactly except I substituted the dates with a bit of brown sugar.

  12. says

    Hi! I just came across your blog researching some smoothie inspiration and I love it – seriously I’m hooked. Your photos are beautiful and I love your philosophy. I just registered for your newsletter, so I look forward to staying up to date with everything that you’re doing.

  13. Magnus Sturm says

    Hi! I’m just wondering how spicy this smoothie is, because i am making this little recipe compilation for my dad on his birthday, and i dont have time to try it out myself right now. Should i add more ginger to make the ginger really taste? Because the compilation is kind of ginger focused. Also, how many glasses does it make? Beautiful website anyway, i love the design and the recipes. I will definitely start using your site!

    By the way, sorry for my bad english, i’m scandinavian!

    Best regards, Magnus Sturm
