During colder months, my mixer will a lot of pureeing of soups than mixing up of smoothies as yet. Bloggers and even larger websites like scoop are developing warm smoothie recipes, and that I had to check the thought get into my very own room to check if such an issue might probably style sensible. I stuck to ingredients I usually add my cold smoothies the only distinction is I heated the nut milk up before mixing. The result’s better than I may have probably imagined. The smoothie comes out frothy and thick, like hot chocolate! I am unable to wait to experiment with different fruits and flavors and add smoothies back to my morning routine even once it’s cold outside.
Feel free to add protein powder to the mix; however, be aware that some protein powders may make the smoothie curdle after a few minutes, so you may need to drink up quickly.
