Back to all recipes

We thought we’d share a lactose-free version of a holiday smoothie that really gives you those warm and fuzzy feels. Subtle flavors of ginger are paired with cinnamon,sugar and a bit of tart apple crispness to make it a well-rounded and flavorful treat. The protein powder and/or yogurt in this smoothie make it a healthier version that gives you probiotics and protein and wipes away any indulgent guilt. As with any recipe, take these guidelines and add your own flare - sweeten to taste and whip up to get the texture you want.
