Frosted Gingerbread Cookie Protein Smoothie

Ingredients (Single Serving)

  • 1-2 cups ice I like to use 2 cups for a very thick shake
  • ½ – 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or other milk of choice
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger or use ½ teaspoon for a spicier shake, but start with ¼ teaspoon for a more mild flavor
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional toppings: crushed gingersnap cookie, whipped cream, sprinkles

Start by adding a scoop of protein, milk and warm spices.

Fill your blender with the ice and then add your protein powder and seasonings.

Pour a small amount of milk (you can always add more). The key to getting the smoothie nice and thick is to use a lot of ice and very little liquid.

And “le voilà” you have your “Frosted Gingerbread Cookie Protein Smoothie”

For a real gingerbread look, add whipped cream and crushed ginger biscuits as your garnish (to crush your biscuit, place it in a Ziplock bag and crush with a rolling pin).
