I must admit that there is something peculiarly relaxing about squeezing oranges with a citrus press. This recipes requires four whole oranges to be squeezed for one glass, so imagine how serene you could feel if you make several glasses. The frozen banana adds some substance to this smoothie and the lime and ginger delivers the zing, hence its name.

Notes: Freezing bananas is a great way of keeping those that are about to move over to the dark side. When you freeze bananas, remember to peel them first.
