I got really into smoothies during the warmer weather, however ice-cold smoothies quickly lose their appeal in these wintery northern climes.  So I went looking to see what I could find on the web to tempt me … and keep me warm now that winter is here.

I found several very tempting hot smoothie recipes from Nicky at the Kitchen Sanctuary: one chocolate, one gently spicy and one green smoothie.  However, Nicky give some warnings about making hot smoothies.  She says …

Don’t fill your smoothie maker up with boiling liquid. It’s either going to shatter the glass (if you have a glass jug) or it’s going to come wushing out with a tonne of pressure when you open the lid after whizzing things up.

Check your smoothie maker or blender can take warm or hot liquids. This recipe calls for a little of the warm almond milk to be mixed with cold water before blending. Then add the rest of the hot almond milk at the end.
