Warm Chocolate Smoothie Recipe

This Warm Smoothie Is Like Hot Chocolate For Breakfast

During colder months, my blender does more pureeing of soups than blending up of smoothies — until now. Bloggers and even bigger websites like Goop are developing warm smoothie recipes, and I had to test the idea out in my own kitchen to see if such a thing could possibly taste good. I stuck to ingredients I typically throw in my cold smoothies — the only difference is I heated the nut milk up prior to blending. The result is better than I could have possibly imagined. The smoothie comes out frothy and thick, like hot chocolate! I can't wait to experiment with other fruits and flavors and add smoothies back to my morning routine even when it's cold outside.

Notes

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 quick.

1 cup unsweetened vanilla or plain nut milk
1 banana
1 tablespoon unsweetened cashew butter (or almond butter)
1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, heat milk until scalding, or until small bubbles form on the sides of the pan.
  2. Carefully pour milk into a blender. Add the rest of the ingredients. Cover, and blend on low for a few seconds, then increase speed to high and blend until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Transfer to a mason jar or a mug, and garnish with dark chocolate. Drink within 10 to 15 minutes of making.
