avocado.. ripe.. all the flesh of an average one
and finally.. BLEND all the ingredients together with ice..

Ginger promotes healthy sweating which is often instrumental during the cold or flu. Along with detoxification, German scientists have found that sweat contains a powerful germ-fighting agent which fights infection.
Cancer prevention. Along with many other fruits and vegetables, one of the health benefits of ginger is its strength in defeating cancer, specifically ovarian and colon cancer. Studies have found that ginger powder causes ovarian cancer cells to die and may also slow the growth of colorectal cancer cells.

Avocado provides a considerable amount of thiamine that modifies carbohydrates into glucose to improve brain and nervous system functions. Riboflavin is also present in avocadoes which are actually a catalyst in releasing energy coming from good fats, good carbohydrates and proteins.

Grape seeds are known as a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants help protect the body from premature ageing, decay and disease. Antioxidants are needed to neutralize free radicals. But the seeds of the grape are not the only valuable part in a grape. There is a substance found in the skin of grapes, called "resveratrol".Researchers reported in a study that resveratrol is converted in the body to a known anti-cancer agent that can selectively target and destroy cancer cells.
