We’ve compiled together a list of drinks at par with coffee in their taste and some drinks with caffeine in them. These are perfect for any weather, and some even have multiple health benefits too. The best part of all of this is that most of the drinks mentioned here can be easily made at home without spending tons of money at cafes.
Nutella Hot Chocolate
If heaven could be in a cup, this is what it would taste and look like. Warm. Cozy. Chocolatey. Creamy. Nutella. In all seriousness, this is super easy to make. Merely mix milk, scoops of Nutella, cocoa powder, and sugar in a pot on medium heat. Serve warm in a jar along with marshmallows and chocolate syrup as toppings. Add in chocolate chips for that extra sweetness.
Pumpkin Chai Latte
If you wish for a creamy treat that you can enjoy in the mornings as well as in the evenings, this is the drink for you. This drink contains spiced chai bags, milk, pumpkin puree, honey, vanilla extract, and pumpkin spice blend. Adding in cornstarch to the mix can help the latte be super creamy. One of the best things about this latte is that it can be served both hot and cold, depending on your mood.
Hot chocolate is, without a doubt, every single person’s go-to drink in the cold weather. The only thing different between everyone is the taste added to the hot chocolate. A few of these exciting flavors are peanut butter, peppermint, gingerbread, white fudge, salted caramel, and white chocolate. Adding honey, ginger, marshmallow, black pepper, or cinnamon gives it that extra homely touch that makes it feel so special and loved.
London Fog Latte
London fog lattes are typically produced by combining sweetened earl grey tea with steamed milk and vanilla extract or syrup. Pretty simple, right? One of the ways to elevate the taste is to add lavender. You can experiment with different tastes and flavors to find out which one suits you the best. Add in the milk just warm enough to drink, and voila! A warm, comforting, and delicious London fog latte is ready to be savored.
Golden Turmeric Tea
Turmeric is an essential ingredient for dietitians, health enthusiasts, and influencers. This powder mixed along with ginger has been said to bring anti-inflammatory properties and blood-sugar stabilizing properties. Ginger with turmeric is a great blend to have prepared in advance to add to your daily routine. Pair it with almond or coconut milk to keep it light. Cardamom is also perfect with that spicy treat or honey for your sweet tooth.
Masala Spicy Tea
Masala spicy tea is a blend of black caffeinated tea infused with Indian fragrant spices commonly served with milk. In the Indian language, masala means spice. It typically consists of crushed ginger, crushed cardamom, lemongrass, cloves, and cinnamon. It is highly beneficial and is said to help with digestion problems, encourage appetite, and has the power of caffeine’s wake-up call. It is traditionally consumed with biscuits or cookies in India.
Hot Ginger Tea
This is the most accessible and most beneficial drink to your health that is mentioned in this list. You have to boil slices of ginger root in water to achieve hot ginger tea. The ginger present promotes good digestion and helps to relieve coughing. Adding in honey gives it that pleasant undertone perfect for your sweet tooth. It can be consumed without adding to it, and it will still be delicious.
