spring cleanse food: ginger banana breakfast shake

This banana shake is quick to make and tides me over on those mornings when I get home from a long yoga practice with a raging appetite that won't wait for me to cook a hot breakfast.

Ginger Banana Breakfast Shake

1 ripe banana
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and sliced
1 cup rice milk
1 tsp raw honey
1/4 tsp cardamom

Blend all ingredients on medium speed until smooth. Drink right away (this banana smoothie doesn't travel well - it will turn brown!)


  1. hi cara- how do you get the ginger to not have "hairs"....powder? straining the shake?

    1. Chop your ginger across the grain, into small pieces before adding. If its a tough piece, blend the chopped ginger with just a little bit of rice milk first before adding in the rest of the milk and bananas. Hope that helps!
