Warm Maple Oat Nut Smoothie (How To Winterize Your Smoothie Habit) ~ while you’re shopping for that perfect transitional cardigan, don’t forget about getting your breakfast routine ready for fall and winter, too.

I’m not much of a cold smoothie for breakfast type, especially as the season switches into fall, but I have discovered that I’m a huge fan of warm smoothies, and I have a feeling my breakfast routine is about to get smoothie-ized in the coming months. This warm maple oat nut smoothie is my first attempt at a ‘winterized’ smoothie and, OMG, let me just say, it is so good. It’s made with almond milk, oats, walnuts, and of course maple syrup. Blend it up in your high speed blender (I’m attached at the hip to my Vitamix blender) for 4 minutes and you’ve got what I guarantee is the dreamiest, creamiest, frothiest, steamiest, smoothest smoothie you’ve ever tasted.

My warm smoothie tastes like a freshly baked maple oat nut scone, or a deliciously thick and silky maple nut oatmeal latte. And even though it’s made without any dairy, it’s packed with satisfying protein.

This method opens up a whole host of possibilities for cozy mornings this season.

Think seasonal ~

Even after ripe juicy peaches are a distant memory there are still plenty of delicious seasonal fruits that make great additions to your smoothies. Think late-season blackberries, figs, apples ~ even persimmons!

A touch of warm spice can quickly make a basic smoothie feel a lot more fall-ish. Many spices, like cinnamon and turmeric, have extra health benefits, too.

Indulge a little ~

Cooler weather seems to call for slightly richer food, but you don’t have to ditch your healthy smoothies altogether. Try adding oats and nut butters for a creamier, more indulgent drink, or a little vanilla extract for a flavor boost. Sweeten with natural maple, agave, molasses, or honey.
