Gingerbread smoothie bowl

Is there anything more Christmassy than gingerbread flavor? This is a fantastic breakfast smoothie bowl for the holiday season, filled with nutrients, light, but with plenty of taste.

And you can go wild by decorating it with a Christmas theme to surprise your loved ones or your children, for example by using coconut flakes to make a beautiful snow effect. It will make them start the day with a smile!


Ingredients for 2 servings

  • 2 ripe bananas, in chunks
  • 140 ml of coconut milk, or another plant-based milk of your choice
  • 2 rehydrated dates, pitted
  • ½ tsp of powdered cinnamon
  • ½ tsp of ground cardamom
  • ½ tsp of powdered nutmeg
  • 1 tsp of fresh ginger
  • a sprinkle of ground clove
  • 2 tsp of cacao powder
  • 1 pinch of sea salt



  • 1 tsp of maple syrup, or a few drops of stevia extract, or another plant-based sweetener of your choice
  • fresh fruit of your choice, coconut flakes, and granola for decoration



Place the ingredients in your high-speed mini blender or traditional blender, blend them for a 1 minute, until you obtain a smooth and creamy consistency. Add some more plant-based milk in case the result is too dry. Serve in a nice bowl, and decorate with coconut flakes, granola, or fresh fruit if you like.


Smart tip

You can also use the mixed spice or the speculaas spice mix (1 ½ tsp) instead of the spices in the recipe, still it would be nice to use a little of fresh ginger to achieve the right taste.
