Gingerbread Warm Smoothie

by | Oct 6, 2021 | Breakfast, Recipes, Smoothies | 0 comments

Despite the much warmer than average September, fall and winter will inevitably come. The cooler mornings have me craving a warm breakfast, but I’m still a die-hard smoothie girl most mornings. Just an easy way to get a healthy breakfast in with an adequate balance of protein, healthy fat, and carbohydrates.

After a walk or run in the cold morning, whipping up a warm smoothie really hits the spot. This gingerbread-inspired smoothie is a take on one of my most popular 30 Day program recipes from 2020.

You can definitely tweak it in the following ways:

  • add a cup of greens and or riced cauliflower to up the veg
  • add/subtract ginger depending on your tastes
  • use 1/4 or 1/2 of a banana instead of a date
  • take out the chia and/or flax
  • leave out the maca (this is great for caramel flavor and bonus of hormone balance)

Hope you enjoy!
