Gingerbread Smoothie Recipe

Blend (Don't Bake!) This Gingerbread Smoothie

The following post was written by Deanna Segrave-Daly, who blogs about tasty, wholesome family recipes at Teaspoon of Spice and is part of POPSUGAR Select Food.

It’s not visions of sugarplums (what the heck is a sugarplum anyway?) dancing in my head this time of year but rather gingerbread. While holiday time is the time to indulge in your favorite treats, I shouldn't really have a daily piece of gingerbread cake for the entire month of December. So I look for additional ways to enjoy it. Enter the gingerbread smoothie.

I got the idea a few weeks ago when I saw this pin from Beth at Tasty Yummies of her gluten-free vegan gingerbread smoothie. I made a shortcut version using regular milk for a total of five ingredients. The quintessential ingredients of gingerbread are molasses and ginger. And while I'm not a big fan of cloves — another classic flavor in gingerbread — if you are, by all means, add a few dashes into the blender.
