Tummy Soothing Smoothie

Author Notes: Soothing ginger and mint disguised in an attractive fruit smoothie. Because I have tried to get my children to take pepto bismol. And failed miserably. Niknud

Directions

Smoothie

  1. All the above quantities are fudge-able. Combine and blitz in your blender. Too thick? Add more ginger beer. Too sweet? Cut back on the mint syrup or lessen the sugar in the recipe below.

Mint Syrup

  1. Heat sugar and water together until sugar is dissolved. Add the mint leaves and simmer gently until the strength is to your liking. Remove and cool.
