Thick and creamy with a hint of sweet vanilla and subtle spices, this dairy free Gingerbread Smoothie makes a fantastic healthy Christmas breakfast
If you are not quite feeling the festive spirit yet then today’s recipe is sure to get you in the mood. Gingerbread is one of those flavours synonymous with Christmas. Sure, gingerbread tastes good at any time but there is something about this time of year that makes it taste so much better.
Thick and creamy with a hint of sweet vanilla and subtle spices, this smoothie is a fantastic way to enjoy all the flavours of gingerbread without any of the unhealthy ingredients.
Lets face it, we’re all going to over-indulge a little during the next few weeks but this smoothie would make a great light and refreshing breakfast when you have a day of eating and drinking ahead of you.
I used a mixture of almond and coconut milk but it would work really well with dairy or soya milk too. I kept the spice flavour very mild so it’s suitable for kids but you can always add extra if you prefer more of a kick to it.
- 700ml / 3 cups dairy or non dairy milk milk (I used a mix of almond and coconut milk)
