Lately we’ve been seeing hot smoothies everywhere. With the weather getting colder we couldn’t be more excited about this winter’s healthiest trend. Hot smoothies are easy and quick to blend together and are packed full of nutrients to kick start your day. During the winter months a lot of the fruits what we would usually put in our smoothies go out of season and are no longer readily available. So why not try adding oatmeal, bananas, apples and an array of spices to this warming treat.

For some extra health benefits and energy, add a tablespoon of Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend after heating, full of the essential fatty acids Omega 3, 6 and 9. It will both boost your immune system and give you glowing skin, shiny hair and stronger nails. The Ultimate Oil Blend has a nutty taste making it a perfect ingredient for a hot winter smoothie.
