Superfood Gingerbread Smoothie

Gingerbread Smoothie

Tis’ the season…for gingerbread! Unlike its unhealthy counterpart- the gingerbread cookie– this deliciously thick gingerbread smoothie is high in fiber, vitamin B6, and anti-inflammatory properties from the real ginger root! Perfect for a holiday treat, celebratory dinners or whenever you feel like treating yourself. It is amazing how good this smoothie is and has all the added benefits included. It’s somewhat like getting a great deal on your shopping with no tax. Now you can enjoy one of your favourite holiday flavours guilt free! You could even try adding a scoop of vanilla protein for an added boost! Serves best with two straws for sharing!
