Saturday Smoothies Morphing to Saturday Soothies

The cold weather is here in Montana so I’m switching my weekly smoothie recipe feature to a soothie recipe. Soothies are comforting, warm (or hot) drinks that will warm your belly. Check back weekly, or sign up for email updates so you don’t miss a single yummy recipe. Thanks!

Fall is Truly here - Cox Lake first snow

Welp. The cold weather has truly laid itself down in Montana.

We are not going to get hot days for a long, long while. Oh yeah — it will warm up a bit now and then. Warm enough to lie in the sun on the south side of a hill and soak up the light. Warm enough to walk on the prairie with just a sweater. Even warm enough to enjoy dinner out in the garden a few more times. Montana weather is tricky, tricky, tricky!

This is going to be fun. I haven’t gone through a winter with the Eat-for-Health food program yet, and I’m looking forward to inventing some cold weather drinks and other foods. Look for soothing comfort-food style drinks:  hot nogs, grogs, toddies … hot chocolates, drinks with warm coconut milk and fruits, spiced juices, tea-blends, even some hot drinks with brandies and rums for a once-in-awhile treat. I’ll try my best to give the Soothies my special healthy twist.
