Why bother with white sugar when raw honey is just as sweet–and good for you?! “Raw” refers to the non-filtered, non-processed form of this sticky substance, made by bees from the nectar of flowers. In its pure, natural state, honey is swimming with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, live enzymes and other beneficial nutrients. Plus, it tastes great, whether swirled into a cup of hot tea, drizzled over a warm muffin or eaten straight from the spoon!
Longing for a latte? Make one with matcha! This finely powdered green tea, popular in Japan, is milled from special shade-grown tea leaves. It’s 10 times more potent than regular green tea, with much higher amounts of EGCG—the antioxidant that makes it so good for you! Because matcha is bitter, a recipe like this is just what you need to drink it down. Mix a scoop with almond milk, vanilla, turmeric and a pinch of stevia, heat until warm, then use a frother for foamy fun!
Stuck in a smoothie slump? Try this recipe for a sweet drink that really packs in the greens. Spinach is already a popular ingredient, but spirulina and maca may be new superfood additions to your kitchen. Just a pinch of these easy-to-use powders provides a potent dose of plant nutrition. Add fresh strawberries, cinnamon and stevia to sweeten things up!
Green tea is great hot or iced. But have you tried it in a smoothie? Brew a cup and let it chill before adding to your blender with almond milk, sliced avocado, flax seeds and other superfood favorites for a rich-and-creamy, antioxidant-packed drink.
Delight your mitten-clad crowd with a cup of creamy, homemade hot cocoa the next time they come in from the cold. This twist on everyone’s favorite winter drink is made with organic cocoa powder and dairy-free almond milk, with a hint of citrusy-tropical flavor from orange extract and coconut oil. Artificially flavored powdered packet-mixes are about to become a thing of your past!
The weather outside is frightful – and hot beverages taste so delightful! Whether it’s snowing, raining or windy in your neck of the woods, stay warm and cozy on the inside with a few of our favorite coffees, teas and cocoa mixes:
