Hot Chocolate Green Thickie Smoothie (Warming Winter Smocolate)

Basic Green Thickie Recipe

hot chocolate green thickie smoothie

I have had this idea for such a long time and finally I have been able to share it with you.

I knew I had to wait for winter to roll around before I shared this but who am I kidding – here in Scotland it’s winter all the time, so this recipe is perfect for you if you are currently somewhere colder.

Do you stop drinking your smoothies in the winter?  

I try really hard not to as I know how good they are for me.  I know those amazing greens are so so good for my health, that the fruit makes my skin so soft, that I get less cravings, keep the weight off and have more energy and generally just feel amazing when I drink my Green Thickies…

But even though I know all of this, I still end up not being able to resist that warm comforting stodgy food that makes me feel good inside for all of a second until I end up tired, craving more of the same and just wanting to curl up in front of the fire and not do anything at all.

I can’t remember how long ago I had this bright idea but it has seriously solved all these problem.

Yes – this is a warm smoothie!

Doesn’t sound so appetizing?  

How about I tell you that this is a hot chocolate smoothie that is thick and filling, sweet and comforting and doesn’t even resemble a fruity fresh light summer smoothie.  

What if I told you that this smoothie still has healthy fruit, hidden greens and best of all – it’s a Green Thickie.  

This means that it is also a full meal, it’s filling and you’re not going to get any cravings from one meal to the next.

This full meat hot chocolate Green Thickie is everything you need for your breakfast – and if you are still pushed for time midday – it’s everything you need for lunch too.

Yes it’s higher in calories than a light fruity smoothie – but yes you can still lose weight if you have one of these for breakfast, another one for lunch and a sensible healthy dinner for about 500 calories.  

What’s more – you are going to feel amazing.  Your friends are going to ask you how come you’ve got so much energy and the weight is falling off you when you just drink hot chocolate all day?

You finally have the secret to winter weight loss – healthy yummy fast food on the go that requires only 2 minutes in your kitchen.

I am calling this amazing creation my Warming Winter Smocolate (thanks to my friend Genevieve for that amazing name that puts a smile on my face every time I say it)

How do I keep the Hot Chocolate Green Thickie warm all day?

I was wondering the same thing myself – do we take a traditional flask with us and pour our warming winter smocolate into one of those little cups that come with a flask?  

No way – you are far too cool for that.  So this is what I suggest…

Get yourself one of these amazing Thermos bottles that keeps your Smocolate Hot all day and drink it straight from the bottle.  What’s best is these are no spill, easy to clean and easy to drink from – I am in love!
