But a cold smoothie on a winter morning? Not so great. Luckily, the end of warm weather doesn’t have to mean the end of smoothie season! Rather than ditching them altogether, consider going for a warm smoothie. Yes, this might sound weird, and no we’re not talking about soup. Warm smoothies are super tasty and full of nutrients like your regular order. However, they are made with heartier ingredients and are much more satisfying in the cooler weather.
