Whether you’re hosting friends and family at your home for the holidays, or you’re just wanting a single (reusable) cup of comfort for on-the-go, nearly every occasion can be enhanced with a nice warm beverage.
To give you a little inspiration, here’s a roundup of a few of our favorite warm drinks recipes.
Mornings can be particularly difficult in the winter. Add a unique spin to the start of your day with the Indian staple, cardamom. This easy recipe from MyRecipes.com involves the simmered spice for a caffeinated winter kick.
Simmer cardamom seeds and milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Heat 2/3 cup water almost to boiling. Put ground coffee in a drip cone set on a Cupanion cup of your choice. Pour water over grounds. Strain milk into coffee. Stir sugar in if you like.
Are you a green tea fan? Shape Magazine offers this foamy, creamy matcha latte, which, with almond milk and agave syrup, is also a pretty healthy drink option.
Blend matcha powder with milk. Stir in agave syrup and vanilla extract. Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg if desired.
