Satisfy your gingerbread cookie cravings this holiday season with a healthy but tasty gingerbread smoothie!
Internet superstar, comedian, plant-based chef, and health coach Talia Pollock from Party in my Plants is smashing the holiday recipes and blending them into goodness you can drink. That’s right, Talia is back with a Green Gingerbread Energy Smoothie you can’t help but love. You can count on three things come holiday season: 1) Cookie cravings rising faster than our annoyance at Christmas music everywhere we go, 2) Healthy eating desires plummeting faster than the money flying from our wallets, and 3) Extreme exhaustion that hits harder than Santa’s noggin on the many fireplace mantles he must duck.
Talia makes no claims to be angelic or a deliverer of miracles, but she’s come up with a way for you to take care of all three of these holiday struggles. This solution can also be made in your blender in less than three minutes. Satisfy those cravings, eat healthier during the holidays, and get a huge boost of energy.
Holiday Gingerbread Smoothie
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 handful of spinach
- 1 scoop Classic Vanilla protein
- 1 tablespoon molasses
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼–½ teaspoon cloves
- ¼–½ teaspoon ginger
- 1–2 pinches nutmeg
- 1–2 Medjool dates
- ½–1 teaspoon matcha
- 2/3–1 cup Almond milk
- 1 handful ice
Blend all ingredients. Pour it into a glass jar, and sip your way to holiday bliss. This smoothie tastes like a cookie, but it doesn’t come with any of the guilt or waistline hugging friends we tend to invite in this time of year. Consider it Talia’s gift to you!
