Gingerbread Smoothie

The holiday season turns me into a cookie monster! Everywhere I turn there are cookies and sweet treats: our office, holiday parties, ahhh! Give me aaaaall the cookies.

But seriously, I have little self control around dessert, so I make an effort not to keep any in the house during the holidays because there are enough temptations elsewhere.

That means, when I have a sugar craving or need something sweet after a meal, I have to get creative. That’s why I LOVE this Gingerbread Smoothie! It’s deliciously creamy and it has the same flavor profile of your favorite gingerbread cookie recipe.

The Almond Breeze Almondmilk Cashewmilk blend makes this smoothie a bit creamier than using regular almond milk (however, I am sure that would work fine, as well).

I also added a couple tablespoons of plain greek yogurt for added protein and creaminess, but that’s totally optional.

Now don’t skimp on the molasses and spices here – that’s what makes it taste like gingerbread.

Enjoy this smoothie for breakfast, as a mid-day snack, or whenever a sweet craving strikes. Happy Holidays!
