The Best of Garden of Lifer's Blog-Raw Protein Gingerbread Smoothie

Posted by: Rhonda Price on Monday, December 30, 2013

'Tis the season to spice things up with holiday flavors like eggnog, gingerbread, peppermint and more! However, it doesn't have to be a fattening treat or a 500-calorie "candy coffee" to satisfy your sweet tooth because you can capture all the flavors in a healthy smoothie! We've found that Raw Protein is a wonderful base for just about anything you'd choose to throw in a blender, which is why we fired up the Vitamix for this Raw Protein Gingerbread Smoothie. Tell your kids it came straight from the North Pole and they'll love it, too!

 



Ingredients:

1scoop or one packet of Garden of Life Raw Protein, Original, Vanilla or Vanilla Chai flavor
1 banana
1 cup vanilla almond milk
1tablespoon vanilla extract
1tsp. Cinnamon
1tsp. Allspice
1/2 tsp. Ground Ginger
4-5 ice cubes

Blend all ingredients together and pour into a glass. Serve with one of our Raw Protein cookies (recipes here on the blog!) and you'll feel energized for another round of holiday shopping, wrapping gifts, or whatever keeps you buzzing this time of year!

I can't wait to try this! I may even try it with Marley coffee flavor and give Starbucks a run for their money! :-)
