To start off the christmas season right, I began to add to my regular banana smoothie a pinch of speculoos spice blend I recently bought (and actually was intended for baking) a few days ago. You can also easily do it yourself by mixing ground cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. It was just a small variation to a basic recipe, but turned out surprisingly good so I wanted it to share with you.
I also happened to have some leftovers of a late-night chocolate mug cake, which worked nice as a topping. This reminded me of the fact that sometimes it’s not the extravagant, fancy ingredients that make all the difference. This smoothie works also perfectly fine to cure immediate cookie cravings, as I feel it is just a liquid form of the classic speculoos cookie.banana speculoos smoothie serves two cookie-thirsty persons 1,5 ripe bananas 300 ml almond milk 1 tbsp ground almonds 1 tsp speculoos spice blend agave syrup 2-3 ice cubes 1. Place all the ingredients in your mixer and mix until the consistency is light and creamy. Top with cookies if you want. 2. Put on your favorite christmas music and enjoy.
