Gingersnap Smoothie

This smoothie combines all the flavors or gingerbread or gingersnaps along with a little kick of fiber and protein all in glass. It’s a spicy little smoothie with a holiday flair.

You can tweak the spices based on your favorite flavor palate.

Tips:

  • Add more or less ice based on preference

  • Add a cup of greens like kale or spinach for an even healthier version. The color may be greener but the taste will be the same.
