This smoothie uses molasses similar to classic gingerbread.  Yes, molasses is sugar, but unlike processed white sugar it contains essential vitamins and minerals.  Blackstrap molasses lends a robust, sweet flavor which is very distinct.  It is an excellent source of iron and vitamin B6. Molasses is often recommended to vegetarian pregnant women who are deficient in iron.

I added a scoop of vegan chocolate protein powder to this smoothie, but you do not have to.  If you want a “chocolate gingerbread smoothie,” add a teaspoon of cocoa powder or raw cacao powder.
