There is nothing like a little comfort food when the weather turns cold outside. And yes, I do realize that a Green Smoothie would not normally be considered a warming and comfy treat for a cold winter day. However, it is all in the recipe ingredients and the spices you choose to add. A Green Smoothie can deliver that warming sensation just as well as any other food!

When is your nutrition as important as in the winter weather, when colds and flu abound? Green Smoothies help boost your immune system, so that your body can resist infection. What better way to warm and comfort yourself, than with the knowledge that your health will see you through the winter blues. When everyone else is sniffling, you will be feeling fine!

For your winter Green Smoothies, try using some comfort spices like cinnamon, cloves or ginger. Those smoothies will start to emit that aroma that only comes from the best holiday treats. As a matter of fact, try using some pumpkin or sweet potatoes as one of your smoothie ingredients. What could be better than holiday pie in a glass!

There is nothing like knowing you are getting your Green Smoothie nutrition, and having it taste so delicious, that all you want is more! 

The energy that you get from your winter Green Smoothies will have you ready for a snowball fight or a sledding adventure with the kids. Now that you are regularly enjoying Green Smoothie nutrition and energy, the sky is the limit!

Banish those cold weather doldrums! Curl up with your favorite blanket by a cozy fire, read your favorite book again, and drink up that fabulous Green Smoothie treat. Your body and mind will thank you daily, and you will breeze through the winter without a care!
