weight-loss tip
This smoothie is high in fiber.  Just one apple contains 3 to 5 grams of fiber, and much of it is in the skin.  Fiber and ginger are a dynamic duo in this smoothie.  Ginger helps spice things up, stimulating digestion and giving your metabolism a healthy nudge, which potentially leads to increased calorie burning.  Not to be forgotten, is the fat-fighting vitamin C swimming in the sweet fresh orange juice.
