Use the above for a retox-detox type drink, if you’re looking for a good winter cocktail recipe, and spike them with your favorite rum, brandy, or mulled wine. While these non-alcoholic drink recipes are most likely healthier when they’re not spiked with alcohol, they’re a great healthy base if you want to celebrate with some warm winter cocktails!

Made the peppermint hot chocolate this afternoon. Tasty! I had some leftover coconut milk in the fridge, the perfect amount for the drink and for making your pumpkin pie. =)
Ruth, so glad you enjoyed the peppermint hot chocolate!
Elana, you are an angel. I have been exhausted taking care of my son who’s sick with mono, not having much time to take care of myself. When the email with the hot drink recipes arrived they looked so appealing! I started my Saturday with the Dandelion root coffee and today with the soothing chai. Making these drinks just for me (I wish I could get my son to drink them…) has made me feel so much better. Thank you!!!!
Irina, I’m so glad you are enjoying my hot drink recipes :-)

Hi Elana, I’ve been enjoying your blog for a while now, thank you it is fantastic! As I live in Australia your hot drink post will have to be put aside for the moment as it is so hot here! Merry Christmas to you!
Merry Christmas Louise!
Hello, I am not sure of the best way to ask questions, I figured here would be okay. Seeing as the holidays are around the corner, I’m revving up to do some holiday baking. I’ve found your gingerbread and shortbread recipes, but I’m wondering if you have any suggestions to rival those chocolate crinkle cookies, or various other types of Christmas cookies, with a special nod towards batter that takes well to cooki cutters? And of a similar vein.. my partner is doing his best to avoid sugar, but I still want to make him holiday treats with cookie cutters. I was wondering if the Multi “Grain” Crackers
might work, or some other method of making “savoury cookies” that would work with cookie cutters? Thanks!
Hi Motdepasse, here is a link to my favorite cut out cookies for you:
For something that is not quite as sweet, you might like my Paleo Graham Crackers:
The rain & cold returned to the Pacific NorthWest this morning, so your post is timely AND tasty! First recipe on my list to try is your Chai, that sounds PREFECT for our holiday decorating activities today, especially after putting up lights outside. :)
