Gingerbread Cookie Smoothie ~ Meatless Monday

Gingerbread Cookie Smoothie ~ Full of all the spicy gingerbread flavors that I love.  If you're a fan of green smoothies, then just add a big handful of spinach.  You'll get all the goodness of that superfood veggie & it won't hurt a bit.  :)

I'm really feeling the fall vibe & I've been craving warming, spicy, baked goods.  So, of course, I decided to make one of my favorite spiced baked goodies into a  ~ spicy Gingerbread Cookie Smoothie.  If you remember, the last time I made Gingerbread Cookies ~ it was a bit of a goat-rope... but I promise, there is no mess with this sweet baby!  Just comforting, old-fashioned, full-flavored baking spices to give this drink the taste of a traditional, spicy Gingerbread Cookie, but in a high-protein smoothie form.  Yippee!
