Frosty Ginger Grapefruit Zinger
1 large frozen banana (sliced for easy blending)
1 1/4 cups fresh squeezed grapefruit juice (2-3 large grapefruits)
* I used a white grapefruit – but red or white will work
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 cup ice (add more for a frostier blend)
1 tsp maple syrup (optional)
1-3 dashes cayenne
To Make: Blend and serve! Garnish with a slice of fresh ginger.
note: for spiciness sensitive kids – you can omit the cayenne and reduce the ginger. to taste. If the grapefruit it too tart for them, you can replace half the grapefruit juice with fresh orange juice.
