Alas, here I am, another night before Christmas. The days always seem to blur together this time of year. It’s as though I blinked and another month came quickly to a close. All the while I’m over here with my list of holiday to-do’s as long as your naughty and nice list (unsurprisingly unfinished) and I’m simultaneously shoveling my 234th Christmas cookie into my mouth. I honestly don’t know how you do it.
So, being the happy hungry yogi that I am I think the only proper way to get through all of this hustle and bustle (besides yoga) is to sip, slurp or spoon this yummy Coconut Nog Smoothie I left for you. It’s packed with plant-based protein, healthy carbs and fats, full of some my favorite spices and it’s the perfect guilt-free way to enjoy a classic holiday beverage as you fill the stockings and fly your way through the night.
Merry Christmas (and happy travels),
P.S. I recommend using one of the gingerbread cookies I left you for dipping.
- 1 c Califia Farms Toasted Coconut Almond Milk Blend (can sub other coconut milk if desired)
- 1/2 c frozen banana
- 1 scoop Sunwarrior Vanilla protein powder
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp rum extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- pinch of cloves
- In a high powered blender, combine all of the ingredients and pulse until smooth.
- Serve with your favorite toppings as a smoothie bowl (shown with cinnamon and one of my vegan gingerbread cookies or enjoy as is with a straw! (Consistency is thicker so add a little extra coconut milk if you prefer a thinner smoothie.)
