3 Comforting Smoothie Ideas

10.29.2018


Who said you could only drink smoothies in summer time? 

Now that the weather is getting colder here in the UK, smoothies are usually the last thing on anyone's mind, but if you're a fruit lovin, smoothie making addict like me, then it's completely okay to make ourselves suffer in the colder months while we try and get as much warmth as we can from the nearest radiator, while we drink our ice cold beverages and try not to focus too much on how our hands feel like they're going to fall off because they're too damn cold from holding the said ICE COLD BEVERAGE. Okay, slight exaggeration I know, but the point i'm trying to make is that those of us that do like our smoothies in autumn / winter time want to feel more snug while we drink away, am I right or am I right? so here's some cinnamon, apple or whatever smoothie ideas to sooth all our basic girl needs.

Cinnamon Roll:
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup dairy free yogurt
1 cup almond milk
small handful pecans 
1 frozen banana
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
ice as desired

Chocolate Almond:
1 frozen banana
1-2 tbsp almond butter
1 cup almond milk
1 tbsp cacao powder
ice as desired

Apple Pie: 
1/2 large apple
1/2 frozen banana
small handful pecans
1 cup almond milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
ice as desired

Simply blend up all of the ingredients from any of these recipes until smooth in a high speed blender and enjoy!

I'm also aware that the photo used doesn't look autumnal at all, but I'm running on very little energy right now and am feeling very emotional after just getting back from seeing A Star Is Born, but I wanted to get a post up for you anyway as I am yet to fail Blogtober, being twenty eight days into it and all, so I used an old photo from the summer time and thought that it would do.

Will you be trying any of these smoothies?

  3. What a wonderful bunch of recipes - I'm loving this post! I've never done a cinnamon roll smoothie before but, girl, I'm to have to some time soon - it sounds delicious! I'll have to replace the almond milk with regular milk or another substitute (got the worst allergy to almonds) but I bet it will still taste good so thank you very much, page bookmarked! x

    1. The cinnamon roll one is probably my favourite out of all of them! you could replace the almond milk with literally any other plant milk (my favourites are hazelnut and coconut) and it would still taste just as great! I can't wait to hear what you think x
