I wish you a happy smoothie Monday! Since it’s the holiday season, I thought I’d share a festive smoothie with you that will undoubtedly get you in the holiday spirit! The smoothie of the day is sweet with a tinge of spice, making it ideal for all you fans of gingerbread!
My gingerbread smoothie is here. This smoothie is frothy, smooth, vegan, free of gluten, and just plain enjoyable! Coconut milk, banana, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, vanilla, and ice are the ingredients. The tastes go together well. You taste a delicious ginger flavor, a tiny bit of vanilla, and a tinge of banana. The molasses in this beverage is what gives it its distinct gingerbread flavor. Additionally, I think the flavors are well balanced, with the spices not being overpowering. Even though I am not a huge fan of gingerbread, I do enjoy it occasionally, especially during the holidays. Who, after all, is able to refuse a gingerbread man? Any man who is as sweet as a cookie is welcome in my book.
How do my little gingerbread men fare? They’re my own creations! No, I’m not serious! They were purchased at Trader Joe’s! They were too adorable for me to refuse. Additionally, they contain a lovely fudge icing and only 120 calories per serving. They seemed like the ideal addition to my smoothie, in my opinion!
