Ginger Cardamom Smoothie
Recipe by House Chef, Abbie Leeson
Learning through travel, Abbie has eaten her way through nearly 60 countries. Australia, Finland, Morocco, Japan and France - a few of her culinary favorites. She's passionate about taking ginger into unexpected places, while still revisiting the classics like her beloved Ultimate Chewy Ginger Snaps. Favorite culinary book: Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. Favorite moment with a fellow chef: Dinner with Julia Child, 1992. Actually, she was at the next table. We told the waiter, "We'll have what she's having."

recipe note

If you overripe bananas, peel them and place in baggies in the freezer so they’re ready to go when you want to make smoothies. You can also speed up your prep by freezing ginger juice in ice cube trays.

I’m confused by your recipe note at the bottom of this recipe stating that it’s ok to put raw shrimp in this smoothie. maybe I’m missing something… or maybe pointing out a faux pas… either way… I think I’m traumatized by banana-ginger-cardamon-shrimp smoothie. I really want to try this recipe, but I don’t think I will entertain your recipe note any further. 😉
