Green Gingersnap Smoothie
This is an amazing post-workout smoothie with carbohydrates and protein to refuel tired muscles. The spinach and molasses contain lots of energy-building iron and the ginger helps to promote healthy digestion. And the best part of all? It tastes like a gingersnap cookie without the gluten or the guilt! 

3-4 ice cubes
1”- 1 ½” ginger, peeled
½ tsp. vanilla
½ banana
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use Vega)
¼ cup raw, unsalted cashews
1 tbsp. blackstrap molasses
2 cups raw spinach
unsweetened vanilla almond milk, enough to blend 

Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender. Pour into a big glass and enjoy!
