Gingerbread Shake

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!
