Gingerbread Smoothie



Gingerbread Smoothie



Gingerbread for me is the quintessential flavor of Christmas. I absolutely love it, and during the holiday season, I try to incorporate that flavor into as many things as I possibly can. One of my favorite ways to do this is in this healthy gingerbread protein smoothie. This smoothie put’s a delicious seasonal spin on your traditional protein shake, and let’s you enjoy that gingerbread taste you love without all of the calories that usually accompany it.
