Check out this festive recipe for Gingerbread Protein Smoothies!

This smoothie pretty much tastes like blended gingerbread – with added nutrition from banana and a scoop of plant-based protein powder. The taste and aroma of ginger are incredibly festive, and this recipe makes for a fun breakfast in the days leading up to Christmas.

If you’d prefer a vegan smoothie, simply leave out the honey and perhaps add an alternative sweetener instead.


1 banana, peeled and sliced 

½ tsp ginger 

½ tsp mixed spice 

1 tbsp honey 

1 scoop Garden of Life Raw Organic Vanilla Protein Powder 


Place all of the ingredients into a food processor and whizz until combined Serve immediately – with an extra sprinkle of ginger for added gingerbread flavour.
