There’s something so comforting about gingery spicy foods, especially in the cold, winter months. I was experimenting with the Blentec and created a smoothie that’s definitely blog-worthy. One sip and it reminded me of ginger snaps or gingerbread cookie dough. Mmmm! What a healthy and delicious breakfast or pick-me-up.
10 oz of your favorite “milk” (I use almond milk)
1 ripe banana (the riper the better)
10 baby carrots (thumb sized)
1 -2 kale leaves (or 1 cup of your favorite leafy greens)
3 tsp carob powder (cocoa powder works too – use 1 tsp)
1 tbs almond butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cloves
1 tbs ground flax seeds (optional – good source of fiber and omega 3)
1 cup crushed ice or 1 1/2 cups cubed ice
Combine all ingredients in powerful blender until smooth. Makes about 30 oz.
