Ginger, people either love it or hate it, I love it! When I saw Chimes Peanut Butter Ginger Chews I knew I had to get them! Two of my favorites peanut butter (it is no secret I love peanut butter and almost all nut butters) and ginger! When I found them it was a love at first bite, I was not disappointed! I thought these would be perfect for my purse and nobody would touch them, they would be mine, all mine. Nope. Both of the girls love them and the bag disappeared. These delicious little candies are the inspiration for this smoothie.
You can also leave out the green for a delicious dreamy dessert shake and use Vega Protein Smoothie instead, or protein to fit your needs!

As a Vega Recipe Ambassador I receive Vega products, which I used as an option in this recipe. I use Vega not because it is given to me but because it has been my plant-based protein of choice since before I started blogging and some recipes are made with Vega products I purchase. I only write about foods I love, my blog is an extension of my hobby to make fun healthy food creations for me and my family.
