3 Hot Smoothies for Fall/Winter

3 Hot Smoothies for Fall/Winter
Heather Nicholds, C.H.N.

A few weeks ago, I asked on my Instagram stories what recipes people wanted to see in November. One answer was hot smoothies – which is something I’ve actually been curious about for a while, but never motivated to try because if it was hot I figured I might as well have oatmeal… but these 3 smoothies may have changed my mind!

Check them out, and give them a try. Let me know in the comments which one is your fave – or guess which one was mine, based on my reactions 🙂

These smoothies kick off the November Comfort vegan cooking calendar. Download the calendar, and then follow along with one delicious vegan recipe per day. Or go with your own flow, and jump in whenever suits you.
