The spices in this smoothie not only recreate the gingerbread flavour, but also give a boost to your metabolism. Cinnamon keeps your arteries healthy, ginger improves the absorption and assimilation of the nutrients in your body, the cloves reduce inflammation and cardamom helps detox the kidneys. Bring them all together and you have a powerful medicine and a delicious taste!


2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 ripe banana
tsp ginger powder
tsp ground cardamom
tsp ground cloves
tsp ground cinnamon
1 pinch pink Himalayan salt

Place the almond milk, the banana cut into small pieces, the spices and the salt in a blender, and process well until smooth. Pour the smoothie into glasses and sprinkle with cinnamon powder. You can heat it up to 40 degrees (not more, as you dont want to destroy the nutrients in almond milk), and you have a warming winter drink.
