The Ginger Vortex

Step out of the polar vortex and warm up with this delicious smoothie #vibrantrecipes

If you live in the Northeast like we do, you're probably pretty sick of this seemingly endless winter. The mere mention of the polar vortex sends chills down my spine, and not in a good way. One day this week the heat in our office was actually broken for the entire morning. Brrrrrr!! So when choosing our weekly recipe there seemed to be a consensus that ginger had to be involved. This smoothie was so warming everyone said it was like comfort food in a cup.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! We were feeling the love this morning in the Vibrant Health office and decided that obviously it was smoothie time and obviously there had to be chocolate in it. I can easily say this was the office favorite so far and it still only contains minimal sugar!
