Healthy Winter Drink Swaps!

By Rebecca

Mmm, hot cocoa on a chilly winter’s day! Or, is that hot cocoa on your expanding winter hips…? This season at Urban Remedy, we’ve made it our mission to get creative with cold-weather beverages, searching for some healthier choices with better nutrition. Here are a few we’ve come up with so far.

Citrus-y Spice Hot Apple Cider:

If you’re up for a healthy departure from the old buttery classic, try this apple cider on for size. Heat apple cider in a pot with cinnamon sticks, clove, star anise, lemon zest, orange zest, ginger, and cardamom. The citrus-y spices add dynamic flavor to your warm winter beverage without all the calories of butter. Plus, you get the added nutrition of a vitamin boost from these fabulous ingredients. Benefiting your immunity and taste buds all in one swig? Now that’s a New Year’s miracle!

Almond-Nog:

If eggnog is not in the cards for you this year, try almond-nog! Mix almond milk with a touch of honey and cinnamon for a deliciously simple holiday beverage. Almond milk provides all the base flavor of the original without the high calorie count. Feeling adventurous? Substitute hazelnut milk for that extra something special!

Masala Chai Tea Latte:

Masala chai spices have been used in ancient Indian medicine to promote calming and mental clarity. During a hectic family frenzy, sipping a soothing masala chai latte to calm your nerves sounds pretty fabulous to us! Want some chai on the go? Try a chai smoothie for all the soothing goodness and nutrition of masala anywhere!
