Blueberry Ginger Mint Smoothie

Posted by

I am traveling for work (this is my third city in three days!!!) AND I just found out that I’ve been the victim of identity theft (Oh joy!), so I’m keeping it short and sweet today folks…

This smoothie is the QUEEN of super foods with blueberries, ginger AND pomegranate–all antioxidant rich foods! Drink it and know that you are fighting all those crazy, nasty free radicals that may have found their ways into your bodies!

And just because I want to leave y’all on a high note, I’ll end with a quote by Jack Kornfield ๐Ÿ˜€ “Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.” Happy Thursday everyone!!!

  1. So sorry to hear about the identity theft problem–how did you find out? I understand the demands of traveling for work, and it can just be exhausting. The smoothie looks absolutely lovely–I can only imagine how good it tastes!

  7. Ohhhh… good luck getting that straightened out. I hope you caught it on the early side. ๐Ÿ™

    You have inspired me to add ginger to my smoothies lately. Now I need to get some mint!

  8. Oh wow! This sounds utterly perfect for me – all my favorites, and such a lovely color ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I love that you added ginger and mint in this. I bet this was so refreshing. Sorry about the identity theft ๐Ÿ™ Being in the ME, every time we make a big purchase the next time we use a credit card it gets declined because the companies suspect idenity theft although we’ve told them several times we live here.

  10. Fantastic looking smoothie! Never would have thought to combine ginger with these other flavours. Sounds very refreshing!

  11. Such a lovely smoothie. Ginger is so good for you. This smoothie is packed with pure goodness. Identity theft is the worst. I hope you get everything sorted out and not too much damage has been done. All the best!

  14. Oh boy – you sound like you’re a busy gal right now! Hope everything all works out!

  15. That’s horrible about the identity theft–hope that gets resolved quickly! This recipe sounds delicious and I’m definitely trying it this weekend.

  16. Tiffany, I am SO sorry! That happened to me once, it is such a horrible feelings to have been invaded like that. It makes me so angry that someone else feels like they had the right to steal from someone as goodhearted as you. But Karma will have the last word!

  17. Wow. I am loving this smoothie. Beautiful color and the blueberry pomegranate juice is killer too even by itself.

  18. I tried to comment but I don’t think it went through, I hope I’m not double commenting but I just wanted to say that I’m so sorry to hear about this and I’m sending you positive thoughts and mental hugs ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. What a wonderful smoothie. I think I would really relish this one. So very sorry to hear the news about the identity theft. Same thing happened to me about 7 years ago. Someone used my SS# in Las Vegas to buy a Sprint phone and rang up a $600. I had to go through an insane number of hoops to report it and get Sprint to stop contacting me to pay the bill. The funny thing is it was a man that said his name was “Ramon” and I was actually in the hospital about to give birth to my my son (spent 7 weeks there…long story) and I had admittance records to show I was no where near Las Vegas. I hate that people do that kind of stuff and we have to deal with all the fall out. I hope your clean up is quick and very painless!! Have a great weekend! ~ Ramona

  20. Holy cats! Since I travel for work, I understand the craziness of traveling, and how it can wear you out:-p I hope everything is okay, identity theft? I am so sorry:-( Your smoothie sounds rockin’! Sending hugs, Terra

  21. Frothy, colorful, delicious and healthy! What more could one possibly ask from a smoothie? I love your ingredient list; the energy boost from this must be quite invigorating!

  22. That is my kind of smoothie! Yum!
