Blizzard Weather Drinks

We got at least 10 inches of snow last night during blizzard "Ashley". She was an intense snow storm and I am so thankful for my husband and snow-blower today. Winter came in like a beast and I wanted to share some of my favorite warm recipes with you I enjoy making this time of year. Here are some of my pictures from the storm as well.

Low calorie Chai Tea
What you need-                                             
1 chai tea bag                                  
4 ounces soy/almond milk                 
12 ounces of water
sprinkle of cinnamon

Warm milk in the microwave for at least 1 minute. While this is going on heat water in a tea kettle or prepare your keurig to dispense water. Place tea bag in a cup/container. Pour hot milk over the tea bag and then the hot water. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the tea. Depending on the type of milk you have this can be a 45-75 calorie tea. It is perfection.

Rich hot chocolate 
What you need-
1 packet of swiss miss hot chocolate
4 ounces soy/almond milk
4 ounces hot water

Warm milk in microwave for at least 1 minute. While this is warming up you want to also heat some water in tea kettle, keurig or microwave as well. I always like to slowly add the hot water/milk to the chocolate packet that is in the cup. You can top it with marshmallows or some coolwhip.

Hot cider
What you need-
cinnamon stick

Put cider in a cup with the cinnamon stick. Warm hot cider in the microwave until desired warmth is reached.

I hope you have safe travels if you live in a snow covered place like myself. I also hope you can make some of these tasty drinks to keep yourself warm in the chilly weather.

Until next time~
