A delicious, thick and very satisfying smoothie. The molasses really adds to the authentic gingerbread flavor of this smoothie so please do not leave it out. This makes one very large smoothie that DH and I always split as it is so filling neither of us can finish one by ourselves. Recipe source Popsugar.
- 1 banana, frozen
- 1 cup nonfat milk
- 2 -3 teaspoons molasses (original calls for 2 but we like 3)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- Add all ingredients to a blender. Blend until thoroughly mixed, and serve immediately.
The flavors in this smoothie are ones that you might expect in a warm drink, but they are quite good in this smoothie as well. The addition of the banana is an interesting touch and is very tasty. I did not have any organic 2% milk so I used almond vanilla milk instead. I have plenty of frozen bananas in the freezer so we'll definitely make this drink again. : ) Made for the Sweet December tag game.
Great recipe! Not too sweet and just the right amount of flavor. I'll be making this again. Thanks for posting the recipe.
Just delicious! This hit the spot for me for a mid afternoon treat. Light but filling and so flavorful with the molasses, ginger and cinnamon.
