My Top Three Warm Drinks to Nourish and Tickle Your Taste Buds

There’s nothing I like more on a cold, wet day (and, let’s be honest, we get our fair share of them in Wales, UK!) than a warm drink. I find it nourishing and, as we say here in the UK, ‘it warms the cockles of my heart’.

Below are three of my favourite warm drinks that are both delicious and nutritious:

  • Those of you who are getting to know me can guess this one. Yes – it’s cacao, one of the most magnesium rich substances of the planet and brimming with molecules of joy and bliss. A cup of joy and bliss…yes please!!

Place two teaspoons of raw cacao powder at the bottom of a cup and put about ¼ cup of plant-based mylk on top. My personal favourite is almond mylk. Mix this into a paste. It will go lumpy and bubbly, but trust me, just keep mixing and it will turn into a paste. You then have two options. You can either fill the cup with boiling water for a more authentic bitter cup of cacao (a great coffee alternative) or fill with hot mylk.

  • My second favourite is a mug of warm moringa. Moringa powder is an adaptogen that is great at supporting your body through stress and bringing your stressed body back into balance. So I use this medicinally if I have had a stressful day or as simply a great drink to have after work. 

Place one teaspoon at the bottom of your cup and put about ¼ cup of plant-based mylk on top. Then mix this into a paste. It may not fully mix together as it is a plant, but mix it as best as you can. Then simply fill with hot mylk.

  • The final drink I’m going to share with you today is green matcha tea. This comes in a powder form and is absolutely brimming with antioxidants. 

Place one teaspoon at the bottom of your cup and put about ¼ cup of plant-based mylk on top. Then mix this into a paste. It may not fully mix together as it is a plant, but mix it as best as you can. Then simply fill with hot mylk.

You can sweeten any of these drinks to taste with a plant-based sweetener of your choice. My own personal favourite is yacon, as I can grow it here in the UK and it doesn’t affect my blood sugar – and it even helps my gut bacteria by feeding my good bacteria. 

I invite you to experiment with some of these drinks and post your favourite in the comments below– I’d love to know which one it is! Remember, if this post tickles your taste-buds then please feel free to share with friends and family.
