Raw Vegan Gingerbread Smoothie

Yesterday I posted the gingerbread truffles recipe, so I thought the perfect way to follow that up would be a gingerbread “dessert smoothie” as I like to call them.  Who doesn’t love a delicious dessert-like smoothie for breakfast, or as a dessert in itself? When I feel like something sweet these smoothies really hit the spot for me.  In the winter ginger is a great spice to use because it is so warming to the body.  I happen to love ginger and it has so many amazing health benefits, so I put it in everything!

If you are new to the raw food diet or are looking to start adding smoothies into your diet, sweet smoothies like this one make for a great transition.  You could always add a handful of spinach to it and you have a full on green smoothie that tastes like a dessert!

I always like to emphasize that these are the type of desserts we should be feeding our kids,  ones full of nutrients, vitamins and minerals.  No added sugar to bring down their immune systems!  Only raw living goodness to strengthen them. They will love smoothies like this gingerbread one.  In fact healthy deliciousness like this doesn’t have to wait for dessert it can be a meal for them, or as a daily snack.
