We all know and love smoothies.

Many people enjoy them for breakfast because of their wholesome goodness, and because of their convenience. But, what most people assume is that smoothies are typically cold and generally reserved for summer’s warmer weather.

We’ve got five delicious and healthy warm winter smoothies that you can enjoy on the go in the morning, to warm you up with a boost of healthy goodness, or just because they’re so yummy in winter!

 

Pro tip: If you’re taking these drinks to go, sip them from an insulated travel mug to keep them warm. All recipes make one meal-worthy blend or two snack-size smoothies. Another fair warning, hot liquids create steam and thus pressure in your blender, so be sure to vent the lid (holding it down while blending) and start the blender on a low setting.

1)      Warm Pear-Ginger Smoothie

1 cup unsweetened almond milk, heated in the microwave or on a stovetop

1 pear, cored and sliced

2 tbsp almond butter

3-5cm chunk fresh ginger, grated or finely chopped

Maple syrup (optional, to taste)

ADD all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Not warm enough? Pour your smoothie into a microwave-safe cup and heat for 15 to 30 seconds, or until it reaches the desired temperature.

2)      Warm Sweet Potato–Spice Smoothie

1 cup unsweetened almond milk, heated in the microwave or on the stovetop until hot

½ a large sweet potato, cooked and mashed

2 tbsp almond butter

1-2cm chunk ginger, grated or finely chopped

½ tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp cinnamon

ADD all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Not warm enough? Pour your smoothie into a microwave-safe cup and heat for 15 to 30 seconds, or until it reaches the desired temperature.

3)      Warm PB-Banana Hot Chocolate Smoothie

1 cup unsweetened almond milk, heated in the microwave or on the stovetop

1 ripe banana

2 tbsp natural peanut butter

1 ½ tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tsp cinnamon

Pinch of salt

ADD all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Not warm enough? Pour your smoothie into a microwave-safe cup and heat for 15 to 30 seconds, or until it reaches the desired temperature.

4)      Warm Chai Tea Latte Smoothie

1 cup hot brewed chai tea

½ cup canned coconut milk, heated in the microwave or on the stovetop

2 tbsp almond butter

1cm chunk ginger, grated or finely chopped

½ tbsp maple syrup

½ tsp cinnamon

ADD all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Not warm enough? Pour your smoothie into a microwave-safe cup and heat for 15 to 30 seconds, or until it reaches the desired temperature.

5)      Warm Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal Smoothie

1 cup milk of choice, heated in the microwave or on the stovetop

1 apple, cored and sliced (raw or sautéed in coconut oil)

¼ cup rolled oats

½ tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp cinnamon

ADD all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Not warm enough? Pour your smoothie into a microwave-safe cup and heat for 15 to 30 seconds, or until it reaches the desired temperature.
