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!
