Creamy Ginger-Coconut Kale Zucchini Spaghetti [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
If eating healthier is one of your goals, then you’re in luck today. Zucchini noodles are helpful for weight loss, thanks to their low calorie and carb count, their high water content (key for detoxing!) and their high dietary fiber content. They’re also packed with folates, which help your metabolism function properly. This pasta sauce? Well, it’s green – of course. Nothing screams healthier than a green pasta! It’s made of immune-boosting superfoods, such as ginger, coconut, kale and garlic. It’s thickened with raw cashews and seasoned simply with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
