Strawberry Apple Grapefruit Smoothie with Ginger

I love a good smoothie any day of the week, whether it’s following an intense workout or just to give me that little extra boost in my day. My Strawberry Apple Grapefruit Smoothie with Ginger is tart but delicious with just a little honey added for a touch of sweetness. Whenever you add grapefruit to a smoothie, you can expect it to be somewhat tart, so I like to add some organic honey to the mix. It will still be tart tasting, but just not as much.
