Do you want all the flavours of Christmas mixed up in to a sweet smoothie? Then this is the recipe for you! Whether you have this for breakfast or a festive snack, your taste buds will be screaming CHRISTMAS!
Come on, who doesn’t love a gingerbread man? There is going to be enough cake and biscuit temptation around over the next few weeks, so why not make this little healthier substitution and put the flavours of a gingerbread man in to a smoothie. I think this would go down well on Christmas morning, with a side of chocolates of course, as you will have enough other cooking to be doing.

I don’t care now, I am in full Christmas spirit. Even though, as you read this, I am currently sunning myself on a Spanish island, my brain is still all *Christmas, Christmas, Christmas*. I like to have a full 2 months of festivities and I am not going to hide that! So, if you are not in the festive mood yet, you might want to avoid coming here until December 😉
Not that these need to be had just at Christmas time of course. Any time of the year they will be delicious.
This recipe was actually inspired by the lovely people over at Onken who sent me this little book full of tips on how to use their yoghurt in cooking. All the tips were taken from fans of Onken on Instagram, who shared their favourite ways to add yoghurt to their meals.
I am a HUGE fan of adding yoghurt to my meals to make them creamy in a much lighter way and the book was full of ideas on how to do that, like adding Onken yoghurt to scrambled eggs or making cheesecake with it. You can see lots more ideas over on their Instagram page. This is my top tip on how to use Onken yoghurt – add it to smoothies to make them really creamy.
How cute are these little bottles and straws that I got? I might serve cocktails in them for a Christmas party, although I now only have 5 of them as clumsy me knocked one off the kitchen counter the other day and it smashed in to a million pieces, and I was bare foot. Why does it always happen when you are bare foot?
Also, thanks to Dave for painting these boards for me to bring a bit more colour to my photos. The red one will be featuring in most of my Christmas recipes. Oh yes, I have lots more Christmas recipes coming up, some with yoghurt in them too.
