The Shake with Benefits
Some breakfast smoothies are really just sugary desserts in disguise—but not this vibrant concoction. It incorporates raw spinach and cucumber, which means you get tons of vitamins and fiber; while lemon juice, fresh ginger and pear balance those veggie flavors out (trust us, the smoothie tastes zippy and refreshing, and not like you're drinking a liquid salad). Research suggests that ginger may have cognitive benefits; plus, staying hydrated could also help to keep you energized.
