October Drinks With a Healthy Twist
October is here and, many of us are enjoying fall and
drinks like apple cider and pumpkin spice lattes. Unfortunately, many of the
traditional ways to make these drinks are not good for our bodies. Here are
alternatives to have many of the Halloween and fall favorites!!
If you enjoy apple cider, you can absolutely have it for Halloween! This is fun to
make when you are carving pumpkins, having your dessert after trick-or-treating, or to enjoy during a Halloween party or other special event. To make the cider, you will combine some organic, all-natural apple cider with
no sugar added or preservatives. You can make it from scratch, but using organic bottled
cider saves you a lot of time! To that you will add some cinnamon sticks, allspice
berries, cardamom pods, and grated nutmeg. For adults, you can also add in a
little bit of spiced rum.
Pumpkin Tea Latte
Regular pumpkin spice latte coffees use dairy, which can cause inflammation in a lot of people, and some other ingredients you cant necessarily have on a diet. However, you can make a health-friendly version with tea and some spices. To make pumpkin spice tea, you will want to use an organic black tea along with coconut milk and coconut oil, pure maple syrup, and vanilla bean powder. Add in seasonings like ground cinnamon, ground cloves, and ground nutmeg. Brew your tea and add the other ingredients, straining it before serving.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
Now for an actual pumpkin spice latte! This gives you the caffeine you crave
and that pumpkin spice flavor you want without using any sugar or dairy. For a
pumpkin spice latte on your diet, you will need coconut milk, vanilla, nutmeg
and cinnamon, ginger, coconut whipped cream, and some pumpkin puree.
Combine your coffee with the other ingredients in a pot and heat it
up. Pour it into a coffee cup and top with your coconut whipped cream and other
These drinks are simple to make, don't require a lot of ingredients you don't
already have, and can really help you enjoy Halloween a little better. Whether
you are an adult looking to spike your drink with some rum, or you want to serve
the kids a fun pumpkin-flavored tea, these are ideal for the Halloween season. It
is a good reminder that all your favorite things have an alternative that is healthier.
