I found this smoothie in some online magazine (I am sorry, I can't recollect) and thought the addition of ginger in a banana smoothie was interesting. We are all aware of the benefits of ginger in our diet.
In that background, when I saw that this combination helps with nausea and upset stomach, I tried it when most of us were sick at home with cough/cold and one of us was suffering from nausea.
Check it out as part of Day 2 week 4 of BM#31 under the theme 'Healthy Smoothies'.
