Have you ever had a warm smoothie before?
While they may sound odd, they’re one of my favourite ways to nourish myself, while still enjoying the feeling of a cosy, warming latte.
I love apple pie flavoured warm smoothie come the winter (think apples and cinnamon, along with dates and oats) but, right now, I am addicted to these Warm Blueberry Smoothies!
They are packed with goodness and are perfect for days when it’s still slightly too chilly to enjoy a smoothie bowl. Of course, if you fancy doing so, you can add ice instead of heating your milk. But, for now, think of these as a delicious, naturally sweet blueberry latte!
I hope you enjoy them too,
