Gingerbread Smoothie

By Amy Crawford

Serves: 1

As many of you would know, we ran a Christmas competition in December and received a whopping 120+ entries for festive inspired recipes. Today we are very excited to share the winning recipe with you all. Thank you Melanie Lionello (IG: @naturally_nutritious) for this delicious creation – it is indeed a winning smoothie, for any time of the year.

I now present to you, the much anticipated recipe: Gingerbread Smoothie!

You'll need:
1 cup almond milk
1 banana
1 dessert spoon chia seeds
1 date
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon mixed spice
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

Throw all the ingredients into a blender and combine. Pour into a glass and stand for 10 minutes, allowing the chia seeds to emulsify and the smoothie to thicken. Garnish with whatever your heart desires – I think walnuts would be just delish. Here we showcase chunks of Melanie’s gluten free gingerbread biscuits. The recipe for these will feature in our upcoming eBook, the next in the ‘A Nourishing Kitchen’ series, ‘Morning’, due to be released early 2014 (such a tease, I know ;). If you’re yet to grab a copy of my whole foods eBook, ‘A Nourishing Kitchen’, you can do so right here.
