Raw Cacao Gingerbread Shake

I have been on a gingerbread kick lately.  Making a cake, some pancakes, cookies, and now a shake.  Just seems right since tis the season for gingerbread.  Yes Christmas is over, but that doesn't mean I am sick of gingerbread just yet.  Ginger after all, is good for you and there is nothing wring with adding it to lots of delicious things to make them even more yummy.  So when I couldn't decide what flavor of shake to make for me and Eric, gingerbread was the first thing to come to mind.  I was going to leave it at that, just gingerbread flavor.  But then raw cacao came to mind.  It was perfect because Eric loves anything chocolate more than anyone I know. This smoothie was freaking amazing tasting!  The combination of gingerbread spices and chocolate is a match made in heaven. Needless to say, this was gone fast!  If you are not sick of gingerbread yet, this is a must try next time you make a shake.
