3 Hot & Healthy Holiday Drinks

The days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder and December is right around the corner. Basically, we’re ready to bundle up in 101 blankets by the fire place with a warm drink in hand. While traditional hot chocolates, lattes, and other seasonal drinks are filled with loads of sugar, artificial colours, and other additives that aren’t great for you. Here at Goodness Me, we didn’t want to miss out on the warm drink train, but also didn’t want to indulge in drinks that aren’t going to make us feel great. Therefore, we curated some clean recipes that are a spin on some of our classic favourites for the season. So grab your mug, and start sipping on some guilt-free goodness!

Turmeric tea

Looking to sip on a comforting blend of turmeric, coconut, cinnamon, ginger and cardamom while also getting amazing health benefits? Then look no further!

This chai turmeric tea latte combines the light sweetness from the coconut milk and dates with the beautiful blend of spices from the chai tea and turmeric. The latte is a beautiful golden yellow that smells amazing and tastes even better.

The golden mylk used in this recipe is vegan, organic, and non-GMO – it is also made in small batches so you do not have to worry about it being filled with fillers or artificial ingredients.

Whether you’re looking for a warm drink filled with anti-inflammatory properties or a new take on the classic chai tea latte – this drink will not disappoint!

Reishi Mushroom tea

Reishi – Isn’t that a mushroom? You’re not wrong! Reishi mushrooms have been skyrocketing in popularity due to their amazing health benefits. The reishi mushroom is used for boosting the immune system, supporting healthy stress response, and relaxation – just to name a few!

The reishi hot chocolate used with your favourite milk creates a unique and enjoyable flavour profile that cannot be matched. The reishi hot chocolate is lightly sweetened with coconut, dates, vanilla and chocolate – it is also organic, vegan, and gluten-free.

The mushrooms in the hot chocolate are organic, and tested for pesticides, herbicides, and heavy metals to ensure its purity. This drink is perfect when you need to warm up on a snowy night – don’t miss out on this reishi hot chocolate. Nothing beats a hot chocolate topped with a delicious whipped cream – right?
