When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing better than cozying up to a nice warm drink indoors, under a blanket. Whether chocolate is your jam, or you’re more of a latte person, or- curve ball- say you prefer hot cider, this is the video for you, because we show you how to make 7 of the most decadent cozy drinks for a cold winter day.
From DIY #moonmilk to DIY golden milk, #hotchocolate two ways (red wine hot chocolate, anyone?) to a Nutella-inspired #latterecipe, classic winter egg nog to peak fall hot cider, there’s something for everyone. Plus, several recipes get a pop of superfood and adaptogen goodness from functional ingredients including ashwagandha, turmeric, aloe, and reishi mushrooms. And what’s more, many are vegan, paleo or keto-friendly, so whatever your preference, there’s probably something delicious for you.
So pull up a blanket and get ready to Netflix and sip for the perfect night in.
Hibiscus Rose Moon Milk
Ease into your evening with this floral brew. Warm macadamia milk gets blended with soothing hibiscus and rose hip tea, honey, ginger, plus ashwagandha powder for a frothy sip that’s perfect for including in a pre-bedtime ritual.
Golden Milk Latte
With ingredients like nut milk, honey, and spices, this frothy sip has all the makings of a classic golden milk latte, but we’ve blended in a scoop of turmeric-flavored bone broth powder for an added boost of protein. It’s the perfect five-minute recipe to transition you from winter to spring.
Chocolate Hazelnut Latte (Keto, Paleo, Vegan)
Looking for a little latte inspiration? Then this cuppa was made for you! Black coffee gets blended with a non-dairy hazelnut creamer along with a decadent spread made with coconut butter and organic cacao nibs. Talk about a sweet start to your morning—not to mention, it’s so much more affordable than fancy coffee shop drinks!
Mexican Hot Chocolate
Spices and butterscotch-like maca powder add new dimension to this zesty hot drink. Drink this extra dark hot chocolate first thing in the morning for an energy boost, or enjoy as a mid-afternoon treat.
Red Wine Hot Chocolate
After the kids go to bed, spike your hot chocolate with some adult-approved ingredients. Start with red wine (‘nuff said), then whisk in a cacao powder made with cinnamon, cardamom, and superfood fungi. Each packet delivers 500 mg of dual-extracted, log-grown red Reishi mushrooms per serving, so you can enjoy a relaxing night. Cheers!
Egg Nog Latte
If any of your holiday memories involve a giant punch bowl filled with eggnog, then you’ll love our modern take on a nostalgic recipe. This drink is downright velvety thanks to a base of almond milk and coffee-spiked superfood creamer.
Hot Mulled Cider
If you’ve got a date with a roaring fire and a good book this fall, then this drink is the third wheel you need to cozy up with! It not only warms you up while you relax, but can soothe your tummy, too. There are classic flavor additions like cinnamon, cloves, and a hint of orange, plus a pinch of aloe booster powder, a gentle digestive supplement made with peppermint, coriander, turmeric, and probiotics.
