Thick, filled with warming spices and so creamy; this smoothie takes minutes to whip up and makes a great breakfast or snack. Adding in some milled seeds adds a boost of protein, fibre and some healthy fat. This is a fun way to get into the festive spirit and honestly, this smoothie tastes just like gingerbread!
