Gut Healing: Gingerbread Latte Superfood Smoothie
I cannot wait to make this Gingerbread Latte Superfood Smoothie for Husband Hanway and I on Christmas morning (its our first Christmas at home and I’m super excited)!
I love this recipe as it feels super indulgent and is so filling, but is actually a light, bright, balancing and digestion boosting way to start the day, be it the holidays or any day.
Cellular matrix healing collagen powder is blended with skin smoothing, hunger hormone balancing great fats, and zucchini, apple and flaxseed provide a ton of nutrients and blood sugar balancing, GI loving fibre.
And the blend of gingerbread spices are not just there for holiday flavor - fresh ginger is wonderful for digestion (perfect if you will be eating a heavier meal later), cinnamon is incredible for balancing blood sugar and insulin levels, and nutmeg, clove and allspice lend warming depth to keep this smoothie in season and in line with Ayurvedic principles.
