5 Ridiculously Tasty Warm Winter Smoothies

News flash: You’ve been making your winter smoothie recipes wrong. No judgment, but who really wants to choke down a cold and frosty drink when they’re already shivering? Not us. That’s why we whipped up these 5 warm, comforting, and super-filling blends packed with seasonal produce and spices. Consider them creamy, cleaned-up alternatives to hot cocoa. 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.

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.
