I am one of those weird people who drinks smoothies even in the wintertime. But, even though it’s served cold, this Gingerbread Smoothie channels the warming flavors from a fresh batch of gingerbread cookies.

And, I even got sneaky with this one and snuck in an optional super healthy ingredient. Be sure to check the recipe card at the end of this post for all the details.

Gingerbread is almost always made with molasses and ginger, and it was traditionally a cake served in the wintertime. I’ve adapted the recipe into a blended drink that you can have for breakfast, snack, or dessert.

As written, this recipe is:

  • dairy-free,
  • gluten-free,
  • vegan, vegetarian, and paleo.

Recipe Steps

Step One

Combine your plant milk, frozen banana, frozen cauliflower (optional), blackstrap molasses, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice in the base of a high-speed blender like a Blendtec or a Vitamix.

Be sure to check out my tutorials on the best way to freeze bananas and how to freeze cauliflower.

Step Two

Blend on high for about 30 seconds, or until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Step Three

Once you’ve blended your gingerbread smoothie, then you can serve it right out of the blender. I put some rice milk whipped cream and crushed gingerbread cookies on top to make the photo look pretty.

This recipe makes two servings.
