I’ve been so inspired by the flavors of the season this year. I came up with this recipe on a long run I did last weekend. I gave it a few attempts and settled in on this recipe to share – heavenly. It is so reminiscent of a gingerbread cookie that it will have children and adults clambering. Not all smoothies require kale or spinach, although it kills me not to add it. I tested out VegaOne’s new protein powder that will be released in January and it was heavenly in this beverage. This is perfect to curb a sweet attack. Post workout refueling. Dessert. Breakfast… whatever you have in mind. Plus it’s vegan and adds a nice dose of iron through the black strap molasses, which is a great benefit for a vegan diet. If you aren’t vegan – use whatever dairy you wish. Almond or cashew milk work great for vegans. I hope you give this recipe a try… I also topped it with some crushed gingersnaps which made it even more fun for kids (or adults that are kids at heart).
