Last week one of my wonderful greenie friends, Tiffany from NatureMom.com made a request for a gingerbread smoothie recipe. Of course, I took up the challenge. I wasn’t sure how it would taste or even look for that matter. I tried a few batches, and I think I came up with a nice gingerbread cookie in a glass. By all means, it doesn’t taste exactly like a cookie, but festive nonetheless. I mean, even my cinnamon, all spice hating husband thought it was pretty tasty! That has to be worth something. No?

Give it a whirl and let me know if you are thinking of a gingerbread cookie while sipping away!

And just to be clear, no gingerbread men were harmed in the making of this smoothie.

Gingerbread Cookie Smoothie

Yields: 1 cup

  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 Tbsp of molasses
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon, or more to taste
  • 1 tsp of all spice, or more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp of ground ginger, or more to taste
  • 1 Tbsp of vanilla flavor
  1. Blend all the ingredients together in your blender, I used my Blendtec.
  2. Pour into a glass and drink. Done.

For the spices, go with what your taste buds are telling you. I tend to go overboard on the cinnamon.

    That looks so good! The best thing is that it safe to eat because it is gluten free. I cannot wait to try it!

      A lot of my recipes by default are gluten-free not necessarily on purpose, I just like raw foods! I do try to avoid gluten though.
