This smoothie is packed with flavonoids thanks to the orange juice and berries. Fresh ginger gives it a refreshing and delicious taste – my taste-testers couldn’t seem to get enough of it!

1 tsp grated or minced ginger root
1 cup mixed berries, such as strawberries, blueberries or raspberries, fresh or frozen
