Anneka's Festive Cinnamon Smoothie

Anneka says: 'This is a tasty festive treat to provide a healthy alternative to eggnog, providing all the smells and sensations that Christmas brings, along with some healthy fruit.The ice will make the drink taste like a cool festive cocktail, so drink in a fancy glass for added effect with a cinnamon stick popped in the top to stir your smoothie with. Ho, Ho, Ho – Happy Vegan Christmas!!'
