Healthy Hot Drinks To Warm Your Winter!

Oh em JEE… seriously it is COLD in Canberra. It was -6 degrees the other morning… MINUS. SIX. DEGREES!

The only things that gets us through winter are cosy, cute pyjamas, roast pumpkin, yoga and healthy hot drinks… PLUS we’re keeping ourselves super busy with our book launch and new products coming soon… eek… we are soooo excited to share more with you! <3

Healthy hot chocolate and almond spiced milk to be precise as well as our hot almond and cinnamon milk. Talk about yum. ESPECIALLY when you have a healthy cookie to dunk in it… internal warming comfort in a mug.

We’re also DIGGING chai at the moment… we will share a recipe for that soon!

 healthy hot drinks

We LOVE these healthy hot drink recipes because they are ridiculously easy. If you’re going sweetener free like us, just leave out the raw honey – you don’t REALLY need it BUT hey, raw honey does have anti-bacterial benefits… so on that note: you do what floats your boat and what makes your taste buds say thank you!

Always merrymaking,

  1. It’s absolutely freezing at our house too! We’ve had snow on the top of the mountain (about 10 minutes from our house) twice this year already! Nothing like a hot drink to warm up hands and bellies!

    Hi Rachel, We’re currently loving Ayam coconut milk, this is from a can so you might need to add more water if it’s too rich. You could even do 1/2 cup coconut milk and 1/2 cup water (instead of almond milk).

    Or you can use any carton variety for both coconut and almond milk… have a check of the added ingredients and try get the ones with the least added ingredients. Hope you like it! πŸ™‚

  5. Thanks πŸ™‚ I use Ayam Brand, so that is good, and there are so many different types of almond milk in Coles/Woolies, i’ll go and check them out

  6. OMG the hot spice milk is absolutely delicious! Why have I never thought to heat up coconut milk before!! Just awesome guys simple easy recepies! Keep them coming.
