White Chocolate Coconut Cashew Hot Smoothie – A touch of white chocolate with creamy cashews, coconut milk and a few other nutritious goodies make this a lovely, warming winter breakfast.White Chocolate Coconut Cashew Hot Smoothie
The cold weather is starting to draw in (at least in the UK anyway), and I don’t know about you, but I have zero motivation to start my morning off with an icy cold smoothie!

I love hot smoothies, and I make lots of variations – Mocha Oat, apple & elderflower, I even make a hot green smoothie (and no it doesn’t taste like soup!).

I made this one originally for the lovely Lucy’s Craftberry Bush blog, and she’s kindly letting me share it with you guys too.

My hot smoothies are delicious and comforting, but can be packed full of nutrients too.

The Process of Making White Chocolate Coconut Cashew Hot Smoothie

This version is so good for you – oats, nuts, maca powder (that’s optional, but adds a mild butterscotch taste), banana, coconut and coconut milk. There’s also just a little bit of chocolate in there to add a touch of sweetness.

My White Chocolate Coconut Cashew Hot Smoothie is so smooth and creamy that you’ll feel like you’re drinking something sinful!

Before you jump in to make one of these yummy breakfast smoothies – please note that for this recipe I don’t add any hot liquids to my smoothie maker.

Most of the ingredients are blended cold, and the coconut milk and white chocolate is heated up separately and then mixed together at the end.  Its definitely not a good idea to add any hot liquids to your smoothie maker (it’s either going to shatter the glass (if you have a glass jug) or it’s going to come wushing out with a tonne of pressure when you open the lid after whizzing things up).

So don’t put that smoothie maker away until next Summer. I’ll be using mine right through Autumn and Winter!

    Think this is my favourite of your hot smoothie recipes, what a great way to start the day.

  4. David Charitos says:

    Nicky I love the idea of your hot smoothies. I found you by searching for just that on google. Can you possibly help me by looking at the ingredients we produce at our Hydroponic Farm in SW London (http://grolocal.co.uk/gropunnet/) and devising a recipe or two? This is a genuine enquiry as we are about to start selling our produce at some London Farmers Markets and i think it would be lovely to offer a hot drink made with our produce as people are shopping at the market. Thanks. David

  5. Molly says:

    Exactly what constitutes a chunk?

    1. Nicky Corbishley says:

      Hi Molly, I often find that large chocolate bars come in large, flat wide chunks, or smaller chunks. So it just means a chunk you can break off a bar. It doesn’t have to be too accurate, but I normally go for a chunk that’s about 10 grams per smoothie.
