A roundup of 20 warm drinks to keep you cozy, healthy, and thriving through the Winter season.

GOLDEN SERENE LATTE ✨ - The First Messpin it!1. GOLDEN SERENE LATTE: Espresso and spiced golden milk make cozy and magical beverage perfection together. I also include a lot of notes on the best plant-based milks for frothing and my personal favourite frothing device in this post.

#VEGAN BULLETPROOF COFFEE - The First Messpin it!2. BETTER THAN BULLETPROOF COFFEE: Raw cashew butter is are secret weapon here. Once you throw it in the blender with some hot coffee, it becomes so creamy and frothy. Some version of this is usually my first beverage in the morning, and it wakes me right up :)

GINGER MAPLE MOLASSES LATTE - The First Messpin it!3. GINGER MAPLE MOLASSES LATTE: With molasses and ground ginger, this one has a bit of a ginger cookie vibe. It’s just spices and warm almond milk, but it could definitely stand up to a bit of coffee or strong-brewed black tea if you need a kick.

FEEL BETTER TEA - The First Messpin it!4. FEEL BETTER TEA: This warm sipper of gently heated pineapple juice with ginger, spices, apple cider vinegar, and maple syrup hits the spot if you’re starting to get a few sniffles. I find that pineapple soothes my throat like nothing else when it’s sore or just rough from all the Winter dryness.

LEMON LAVENDER TEA LATTE - The First Messpin it!5. LEMON LAVENDER TEA LATTE: You can customize this tea latte based on what kind of tea you like to drink (black, yerba mate, rooibos etc). The lemon and lavender lift the flavour profile up, but they keep everything calm and soothing too. When made with slightly sweet rooibos tea, this one almost has a lemon meringue feel.

COCONUT CASHEW MATCHA LATTE - The First Messpin it!6. COCONUT CASHEW MATCHA LATTE: A throw-it-all-in-the-blender approach to matcha lattes. The cashews make this creamy and have a bit of natural sweetness as well. My favourite matcha these days is any of the entry level “balanced” ones (ie not the mega pricy umami ones) by Ippodo Tea.

CACAO HAZELNUT HUG - The First Messpin it!7. CACAO HAZELNUT HUG: This one shamelessly tastes like a warm mug of nutella goodness, but with health-supporting ingredients. The froth on this one is unreal–something about the combination of coconut AND hazelnut butter.

COCONUT BUTTER HOT CHOCOLATE - The First Messpin it!8. COCONUT BUTTER HOT CHOCOLATE: A delicious go-to hot choclate sweetened with dates and with a kiss of coconut. The preparation method for this one is unusual and very fun. Hot water and chopped chocolate are combined in an upright blender for deeply creamy results ;)

INSTANT CALM TEA LATTE - The First Messpin it!9. INSTANT CALM TEA LATTE: Chamomile and lavender join forces in this soothing warm drink. Vanilla mellows the flavour out even further. This one is perfect for your evening wind down routine.

ADAPTOGENIC HOT COCOA - The First Messpin it!10. ADAPTOGENIC HOT COCOA: A simple almond butter-based cocoa with a linch of cordyceps powder to keep you energized and help you cope with stress. I extra love a bit of cordyceps right before a workout–it’s like a very wholesome liquid motivation for me.

BLUE MAJIK TODDY WITH GINGER & LEMON - The First Messpin it!11. BLUE MAJIK TODDY WITH GINGER & LEMON: I typically reserve Blue Majik (a form of spirulina) for my smoothies, but this alternative beverage hits me just right when I’ve been over-indulging a bit. The lemon and ginger are nice and sharp here.

DOUBLE BERGAMOT, DOUBLE VANILLA EARL GREY LATTE - The First Messpin it!12. DOUBLE BERGAMOT, DOUBLE VANILLA EARL GREY LATTE: Better than any earl grey latte you could buy, honestly.

VEGAN WHITE CHOCOLATE MOCHA WITH HERBAL COFFEE - The First Messpin it!14. WHITE CHOCOLATE MOCHA WITH HERBAL COFFEE: This one came to be when I needed to find a use for some cacao butter that was languishing in my pantry. This one is sweet and decadent. Feel free to make it with legit coffee, rather than herbal ;)

SWEET FIRE TONIC - The First Messpin it!15. SWEET FIRE TONIC: A gently warmed juice of orange, carrot, and ginger with some cayenne and apple cider vinegar. Pretty much guaranteed to make you feel better if you’re stuffed up or just feeling kinda blah.

MELLOW MINT MOCHA #vegan #dairyfree - The First Messpin it!16. MELLOW MINT MOCHA: An herbal coffee concoction (no caffeine!) with the indulgent pairing of mint and cocoa. Fresh, cozy, comforting, and a little festive.

COZY CARROT CAKE LATTE - The First Messpin it!17. COZY CARROT CAKE LATTE: All the rich flavours of carrot cake in one healthy latte. Loaded with coconut cream, warm spices, and tangy citrus.

MAPLE WALNUT HOT CHOCOLATE (vegan recipe) - The First Messpin it!18. MAPLE WALNUT HOT CHOCOLATE: Nutty, maple-y and chocolaty perfection! Soaked walnuts are blended into the “milk” of this one.

TURMERIC & VANILLA SPICE LATTE - The First Messpin it!19. TURMERIC & VANILLA SPICE LATTE: I go right to this drink when I have some back pain or sore muscles. The anti-inflammatory effects of turmeric are easy to love, but the flavour of this drink is so comforting with all the cinnamon and vanilla.

HOT COCOA WITH COCONUT, CARDAMOM & SEA SALT - The First Messpin it!20. HOT COCOA WITH COCONUT, CARDAMOM & SEA SALT: Caramel-like sweetness from dates and a base “milk” is formed out of hot water, almond and coconut butters. Cardamom and sea salt make it so heavenly.

And bonus! Here’s a few other high vibrational beverages from around the internet that I have my eye on. Let me know what kind of winter warmers you’ve been sipping on lately in the comments.

    Laura –

    I got your cookbook as a gift for the holidays and have been meaning to leave feedback on your blog – we just tried the turmeric latte and bullet coffee and totally loved both (I think my husband has a new favorite coffee drink!) so it felt like the right moment.

    Seriously – your recipes and approach to plant based eating have turned our kitchen upside down (in the best way possible!) I am cooking my way through your cookbook and have been blown away by everything we have tried. Now that I’ve discovered your blog we will never be without food inspiration :)

    Thank you for taking the time to share these recipes and for making our family healthier and happier along the way !!ReplyCancel

  • Rianna29/12/2018 - 6:00 am

    It’s summer where I live, but since I just had a bowl of soup for dinner I’m obviously not averse to a hug-in-a-mug beverage in warm weather! I’ve bookmarked several of these to try, and it was one of these drinks that turned me onto herbal coffee a while back. Thanks for sharing such coziness with us ☕ReplyCancel

  • Diane29/12/2018 - 4:21 pm

    This round up is so perfect! I went and bought the frothing machine you recommended as a Christmas gift for myself and It works like a dream. Now I have all these amazing drinks to make without having to search for them! You’re awesome, Laura! Thank you!ReplyCancel

  • Jemma30/12/2018 - 1:40 am

    Wow, if this isn’t the post of my dreams! Although it’s summer down here in Australia, I can’t wait to make some of these on the cooler days when the soft summer rain is falling. Ultimate cozy vibes. Hope you have a wonderful new year – whatever that means to you.ReplyCancel

    • Laura30/12/2018 - 7:38 am

      Thank you so much, Jemma! All the best to you in the new year as well :)

  • Ali30/12/2018 - 3:39 am

    I’m a (reluctantly) zero caffeine person, so I’ve been rotating between various rooibos based lattes and peppermint tea lattes, which are surprisingly interesting and complex.ReplyCancel

    • Laura30/12/2018 - 7:37 am

      Rooibos tea makes the best tea lattes! I love that earthy but slightly sweet flavour. It’s great with vanilla, spices, lavender, rose, so many things! I really need to share more rooibos lattes here because I drink them so often.

  • Penny05/01/2019 - 11:52 am

    Oh my word. I’m doing a happy dance because of this post. I want to make all of them, and will. You are my hero today.ReplyCancel
