Gingerbread Smoothies are healthy and delicious! They taste like a Christmasy milkshake! You’ll never know how many healthy nutrients are in there by the flavor.
I know this looks like a lot of ingredients, but you certainly do not have to use them all. I think this combination tastes the best, and offers the most health benefits. For example, by using walnuts alongside the pecans you add extra flavor and omega-3 fats, which will help balance out the omega-6s in the pecans.
Before we get to the recipe for the Gingerbread Smoothies I want to invite you to join with others who are making healthy changes, if you haven’t done so already. I’d love to walk alongside you in your journey towards wholeness and health! Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full!” Freedom from food addictions is part of having a truly full life.
- 2 Tsp Blackstrap Molasses
- 1/4 Cup Raw Walnuts
- 1/4 Cup Raw Pecans
- 1 Small Apple, Sliced
- 2 Dates
- 1 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Small Handful of Baby Spinach (NOT kale…the flavor is too strong for this)
- 1 Tsp Vanilla
- 1/4 Cup Almond Milk (Unsweetened)
- 1/2-1 Cup Ice Cubes
Place all of the ingredients for the Gingerbread Smoothie in your blender and blend until smooth. If the flavor is a little too strong for you, or you want it to be thicker, try adding more ice. You can also add a little coconut cream to make it creamier. Enjoy for breakfast, snack, or dessert!
