When it’s cold outside, who doesn’t love a little “haute cuisine?”
We play with the culinary phrase, but assure you this warming winter smoothie is indeed a “hot” way to warm up your morning or get toasty after a day of trekking through the snow! Spices bring warmth to your cup with the added nutritional boost of anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-fungal benefits.
