Gingerbread Christmas Smoothie


Gingerbread Christmas Smoothie

Thick, filled with warming spices and so creamy; this smoothie takes minutes to whip up and makes a great breakfast or snack. Adding in some milled seeds adds a boost of protein, fibre and some healthy fat.

This is a fun way to get into the festive spirit and honestly, this smoothie tastes just like gingerbread!

Z loved helping to make this and has requested it almost daily since we first made it a few days ago!

We like A LOT of spice but you can add less to start and taste as you go!
