Yoga Camp Fuel

I spent last week in my second module of yoga teacher training – 2 down, 2 to go! I’ll do a recap in the coming weeks.

The mornings began with a 3 hour (intense) flow. Everyday we would walk in saying “I think they’ll go easy on us today” and everyday was harder than the last. I’m always so sad to see the week come to an end; I can’t wait for November!

Because our practice started so early, it made finding the right thing to eat a little challenging. I knew I needed to eat something, but I couldn’t have anything too heavy on my stomach before our hot, sweaty class. This smoothie was my saving grace.

I’ve been trying to add more ginger to my diet. Ginger is so great for digestive issues, nausea, the absorption of essential nutrients, and helps relieve joint pain – all the things I needed this last week. This smoothie is so simple, but was perfect for my early mornings.

Yogi Smoothie (Print Me!)

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 LARGE handful of greens
  • 1/2-1 tsp. fresh grated ginger (ginger can be a little spicy, so start with 1/2 tsp.)
  • juice from 1/4 lemon
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 cup mango

Add water, greens, ginger and lemon juice to your blender; blend until smooth. Add banana and mango and blend until smooth. *I prefer to use all frozen fruit so I don’t have to add ice.

Add additional water or ice to reach desired consistency.
