A big glass of Merry Christmas

The holiday season for most tends to be a bit of a whirlwind. Sure it’s cozy and charming but before you have even swallowed the last brussel sprout it’s time for New Year’s resolutions and then suddenly you’re buying heart balloons in February and painting Easter eggs.

This year though, we are making a conscious effort to revel in the Christmas spirit and thus we bring you, Merry Christmas in a glass! A yuletide smoothie topped with gingerbread streusel that’s sure to brighten your holiday spirits all month long!

Merry Christmas smoothie with gingerbread streusel
(1 large glass)

1 cup unsweetened almond or oat milk
1 apple
3 dates
10 cashews
¼ tsp vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
a pinch of salt
Gingerbread Streusel:
2 dates
2 tablespoons of organic almonds
1/2 teaspoon of gingerbread spice blend (recipe is available here)
a pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients together with an immersion blender or small food processor. A good tip is to pulse the dry ingredients for a few seconds first before adding the dates. Then mix all the ingredients into the smoothie in your high speed blender and run until it’s nice and smooth.

Pour your Christmas smoothie into a large glass and sprinkle with some leftover gingerbread streusel. Put in a straw and you’re ready to jingle all the way till Christmas.
