+ GINGERBREAD SMOOTHIE


Although I love gingerbread lattes, they are packed with with sugar, dairy and a ton of calories and seem to leave me feeling...sluggish.  Don't get me wrong, I'll be drinking a few this season, but I wanted to see if a holiday smoothie had the same magical feel as holding that warm cup.  And...it DOES!  For me at least!  Here's what I did:



Gingerbread Smoothie: 

1/2 cup organic almond milk
1 organic banana 
3 ice cubes
1 tsp. organic molasses 
1/4 tsp. organic ground ginger
1/2 tsp. organic cinnamon 
1/2 tsp- 1tsp. of organic vanilla



Also, I tried this exact recipe with 4 kale leaves and that is too many for this recipe.  If you want to get your greens in, I would add more almond milk and one more banana.  Then it would be just right.


Swear it's so good!


Enjoy!



fun fact: Molasses, on average, contains 41 mg of calcium and 48 mg of magnesium for 1 tbsp. At 293 mg of potassium per 1 tbsp., it qualifies as a high-potassium food comparable to kiwi or oranges.  It also offers iron, vitamin B6, selenium and copper.
