6 Healthy Drinks You Can Drink All Year Round
What are we going to do today?
If you are a Pinterest addict (like me), I believe you’ll
appreciate my recent finds – 5 healthy, refreshing, energizing and incredibly
delicious recipes for non-alcoholic beverages that are easy to make and won’t
take much of your time.
I love ginger! Seriously, I am obsessed with ginger and I
use it for everything! I cook with it, I add it to juices and smoothies and I
soak it in
organic honey (and eat it whenever I have sweet craving, which is
quite often). I enjoy it so much that sometimes, I just slice it and chew it. Now,
when you know about my ginger obsession, you will understand why, when I saw
this recipe, I was like
“Wow! Gotta try
I tried it today and it turned out AH-MA-ZING!
The immune boosting properties of ginger, combined with the countless
health benefits of turmeric and all nutrient-rich fruits you have in this smoothie
– if this is not the healthiest treat for your body, I don’t know what is.

with Fresh Mint
I am not the type of person that reaches out for refreshing
drinks only when it’s hot. If I want something super-ultra-cooling, I don’t
really mind if the temperature outside is below 0.
To be honest, I am not a huge fan of lemons, but I know they
are loaded with vitamin C and I also know that
vitamin C is wonderful for your skin (boosts glow, reduces redness, improves skin’s elasticity, etc.),
therefore I had to find a way to “make friends” with lemons.
I decided to try this particular recipe, because it had mint
in it (I am a huge mint lover).
Did I like it? Oh, my – the best cooling drink you can have!
Moderately sweet and super refreshing, this drink is da bomb!

Triple Berry Kiwi
While we are still talking about smoothies, let me share another
recipe that I tired and I fell in love with immediately! Not only it’s incredibly delicious, but it also
increases your energy levels and boosts your immunity. Berries and kiwis are
rich in antioxidants and bioflavonoids – they help your body fight infections
off, keeping you healthy, strong and energetic. What’s more – the taste of this
smoothie is divine!

Healthy Chai Latte
When I first tried chai latte 5 years ago, I remember that I
was like “I can drink this all day, every day!”
Today, I still enjoy chai latte and it is one the drinks
that I prepare most often. Usually, I stick to the classic recipe, but I also
love trying out new stuff, because who knows – I might stumble upon some
variation that I like more.
If you are looking for an alternative of the
sugar-loaded spice latte that Starbucks offer, try this one – it’s just as good, only healthier.

I am relatively new to the paleo diet and I am still experimenting
with different recipes. One of the recipes I’ve tried last weeks was by
Nom Nom Paleo and like Michelle Tam (the creator of this amazing blog) says “this beverage is pretty darned refreshing”
. I couldn’t agree more. Perfect for those days when you feel a bit hangover (after
having too-much-red-wine the night before) or just when you feel the need to
urgently rehydrate your body.

Homemade Apple Cider
Is there anything more warming (for your body and your
senses) than some good homemade apple cider?
Even though apple cider is a type of beverage we usually
enjoy around Christmas, I don’t think there is anything wrong with drinking it
all year round. The smell of
cinnamon and apples that fills your house when you
make apple cider is sooooo nice!
There are many recipes on the net, but the one I’ve chosen
to share with you is particularly good, mainly because it’s sugar-free,
alcohol-free and doesn’t require canning.
