Ginger Cherry Smoothie

Beautiful food makes me so happy, and when that glorious food is packed full of antioxidants and vitamins my smile grows just a bit more.  This Ginger Cherry Smoothie is life changing.  You are probably wondering how on earth a smoothie can be life-changing.  Well, outside of its delicious flavors it is packed with nutritional benefits that may just have you skipping the pain reliever for the day – or for good.

Be sure you snap a pic (or a selfie) of this fantastic smoothie and let me know on social media (#veginspiredfoodie) what you think.  For me, it is a no-brainer when those aches and cramps rear their ugly heads.
