5 Warm and Fuzzy Fall Smoothies

Hello, fall! All of the changes — the colors of the leaves and the coolness of the weather — make me want to do something different. Of course, bundling up in my favorite sweater is the biggest change so far this season, but I also need a change in one of my favorite things to eat/drink: smoothies.

I know smoothies are typically thought of as being a summer drink or meal, but I believe there are ways to make the chill of the new season warmer with smoothie combinations.

I’ve found 5 different recipes that I’m dying to try this fall, and I hope after you hear about them, you’ll be blending some of them up yourself!
