Now I’m not a ginger, strong ginger, gingerbread fan so I’ve made a warming and soothing subtly spiced smoothie, rather than one that comes with a kick. The combination of spices couldn’t get more festive and they all work together to create a glass of comfort and the perfect drink any time of day, whether that be for breakfast, pudding or before bed! Like a big hug in a glass. Super creamy, nutty and delicious!
I only came up with this yesterday! I loved it so much, I couldn’t wait to share it! Therefore, you better get blending!
Ingredients – serves one
1 really ripe banana
200ml cashew milk
30g pecans – preferably soaked overnight
1 tsp ground ginger
0.5 tsp cinnamon
0.12 tsp ground cardamom
2 pinches of ground cloves
Start by toasting the pecans in a dry non stick pan, over a medium heat until golden.
Pour the toasted nuts into a high speed blender with the remaining ingredients and blend on high until silky smooth.
Pour into a glass.
Enjoy with a pretty straw!!
Idea – try this warm!
