Power protein gingerbread smoothie with walnuts

I love this one: ginger is a great way to boost your immune system naturally, ginger also has other health benefits and things that it aids, but not getting in to that right now.  The recipe that I found on “The healthy foodie” had bananas in it, but since bananas is not agreeing with me, I switched it out with some other fruits: Avocado and mango to be precise.  The Greek yoghurt, the protein powder, and beans gives this smoothie a high protein level. This one is a smoothie you get hooked on, even though it might not seem appealing due to the ingredients, they blend very well together, try it out, and let me hear what you think.

1/2 cup cooked white beans/navy beans

1/2 avocado

1/4 cup mango ( chopped)

1 tbs fresh ginger chopped

1/4 cup Greek  yoghurt

1/2 cup milk ( your choice)

1/2 scoop egg white protein

1 tbs flax seed meal

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tbs blackstrap molasses


1/4 cup walnuts


1. Add all ingredients, minus the walnuts, in the blender

2. Sprinkle on the walnuts

3. Use a spoon

    This looks so good! I love how you add beans to it… you don’t see that a lot in smoothies!
