Five Vegan Drinks to Keep You Warm

Five Vegan Drinks to Keep You Warm

Are you a vegan? Or have you recently decided to follow a strict vegan diet? You have come to the right place, pal! Since winter is at its peak and you are probably sitting in your cosy blanket thinking of hot drinks – we have come upon a list of some vegan beverages that you are going to love and will keep you warm.

Vegan Hot Chocolate

This creamy drink is one of the best ways to keep you warm from the cold winter. It’s a simple recipe, and all you need is – unsweetened plain almond milk, unsweetened cocoa powder, dairy-free dark chocolate, and raw sugar.

This coca centric recipe is packed with vitamins and minerals!

Apple Cider Vinegar Cinnamon Tea

This tart beverage will help you to detoxify if you are feeling sick. Honey and vinegar have been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years.

A teaspoon of cinnamon powder along with organic apple cider vinegar mixed in a glass of warm water may help curb appetite, weight loss etc. Adding honey will make it taste amazing and pinch if sea salt adds minerals. Apple cider vinegar is one of the superfoods and must not be undervalued!    

Tea latte

It’s a bit more complicated than the previous recipes. You need some cashew milk and tea concentrate to make it authentic. All you have to do is combine them. Tea concentrate can be sweetened as per your taste. The ingredients are – 

  • 5 cups of water
  • 8 bags of black tea
  • 1 stick of cinnamon
  • 10 green cardamom pods
  • 10-star anise
  • 1 tbsp whole cloves
  • 3 inches of fresh ginger cut into slices
  • 1 tbsp black peppercorns
  • 3/4 cup to 1 cup cashew milk
  • Maple syrup or coconut sugar to taste

Cranberry Apple Cider

Good things happen when you add cranberry juice and star anise to apple cider. Spicy, sweet, tangy, all in one! This recipe is easy as all you need to do is place the ingredients in your slow cooker. This drink makes the whole house smell amazing and has a pleasing aroma.

Hot Toddy

Let’s warm up with some hot toddies! For adults, it’s a classic winter recipe. Already dairy-free, one can twist it by adding cranberry to vanilla vodka or maple to bourbon along with hot water, honey and lemon. Add cinnamon, fresh ginger and cloves to create this spice blend.   

Hot toddies are lovely slow sippers. Perfect for playing cards with your family!
