Super easy and crazy healthy, it's a go-to on a busy weekday morning.
The only trick to it is to keep a frozen, peeled banana (whole is just fine) in the freezer at all times. That way you won't be without one on busy mornings. As soon as I use one for my smoothie, I keep the same ziplock and replace it with a ripe banana. Easy peasy!
I added my favorite mix of holiday spices (or you could totally use pumpkin pie spice and add extra ginger!) and a bit of molasses and voila! A wonderful, seasonal treat!
Healthy Gingerbread Smoothie
Makes one large.
1 frozen and peeled, very ripe banana, whole is fine...just break it with your hands as you add to the blender
1 cup cold coffee (optional, but I love my smoothies with a kick of caffeine!)
1 cup milk (any kind you like...and if you aren't using coffee, double the milk)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon molasses (or 2 if you like yours extra sweet!)
Blend together in blender until creamy and frothy and enjoy with extra of your favorite spice on top!
