With the cold weather already here, it’s time to say goodbye to frozen smoothies and hello to steaming hot beverages.
But many people make the mistake of ordering fan-favorites like pumpkin spice lattes not realizing they are consuming a whopping 50 grams of sugar!
The good news is, you can still enjoy a hot drink without sacrificing your health.
Instead of sipping on sugary drinks that aren’t even nutritious – check out our recommended best hot drinks to sip this fall.
Ginger is one of the healthiest things you can put in your body!
It can do everything from help an upset stomach and ease nausea to even make menstrual cramps less severe!
Some health experts even claim ginger can lower cholesterol and reduce inflammation in the body.
You can purchase ginger tea in the store – or even better make your own at home with fresh ginger root.
If you’re unsure what other ingredients to add to your tea, ginger pairs well with fresh lemon and honey.
Golden Milk Turmeric Tea
If you’re looking for something creamy with a bit of a kick – golden milk turmeric tea is your best option.
Simply add your choice of milk to a saucepan (almond and coconut work best) and mix together with turmeric spice and a little bit of black pepper.
Some people throw in a cinnamon stick or a bit of honey for a sweet taste.
Whisk it together until it’s hot – then serve right away!
The combination of flavors is incredible, and the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric are a bonus health benefit!
Health experts claim turmeric is one of the healthiest supplements you can take, and Healthline reported turmeric “dramatically increases the antioxidant capacity of the body”!
There’s no need to reinvent the wheel – sometimes the classics are best.
For those who need their daily caffeine and want something filling – bulletproof coffee is where it’s at.
Just blend your coffee, butter, and MCT oil together and serve hot! You can substitute the butter and MCT oil for other healthy fats like ghee or coconut oil.
If you’re looking to make it more “fall-like” – just sprinkle some cinnamon on the top!
Say No to Sugary Coffee Drinks
Resist the urge to sip on sugary coffee drinks which will only make you feel sluggish.
Not only will they make you gain weight, they are full of sugar and other preservatives and have no nutritional value.
Instead, opt for one of these healthy hot drinks.
The sky is the limit, and you can custom make them how you like them – adding more or less of certain spices.
Not only do they taste good, but they are good for your body – it really is a win/win situation.
