This Gingerbread Smoothie is the perfect way to celebrate the Holidays – with classic gingerbread taste and a ginger snap cookie crunchy topping!
Christmas is in the air… can you feel it?! We went out this weekend and bought a real tree for our family room and have been busy baking Christmas goodies too. I think one of my favorite things about Christmas is definitely the smells of the Holiday. What comes to mind when you think of Christmas scents? I always think of fresh pine, sweet cookies baking, and cinnamon and gingerbread!
I recently got a major upgrade in my kitchen to help with preparing all the Christmas goodies and I went straight for those Christmas scents when it came to using my new Ninja® Intelli-Sense™ Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer™. This kitchen appliance has taken place of two of my former appliances and I think it will continue to replace others as I learn just what all it can do!
The girls and I are all about smoothies lately so I decided to make a Christmas-y smoothie for us to enjoy. The Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer is a kitchen appliance that will serve as your blender, food processor, auto-spiralizer, and much much more! It has 12 Smart Programs that are coupled with Ninja’s Smart Vessel Recognition Technology that delivers optimal results every time. I don’t know about you, but when I’m making a smoothie I often wonder how much I should pulse, how long it will take to mix everything up… this Ninja does it all for you in a snap!
To make this Gingerbread Smoothie, I first used the food processor vessel to chop gingersnap cookies. It was fast, easy, and definitely intuitive with the touchscreen. Once I put the vessel on, the smart programs lit up and I chose “chop” and the machine did all the work for me!
You have two options for smoothies with the Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer. It comes with a 72 oz. Total Crushing® Blender and a 24 oz. Single-Serve Cup. I find that the single-serve cup is plenty big enough for a couple of smoothies and I love that it comes with a flip top lid so you can grab your smoothie off the machine and head out the door in a pinch!
Of course, the Gingerbread Smoothie is delicious on it’s own, but when you add those yummy chopped ginger snap cookies on top, you get the best of both Christmas smoothie worlds!
The part of the machine that I’m most excited to try out is the Auto-Spiralizer. I’ve been seeing some great “Zoodle” recipes that I just can’t wait to try out for my family. I always prepare a vegetable with dinner, but I’m definitely interested in learning how to serve even more healthy dishes.
