Three Fall Drinks (Vegan)

Fall is finally here in Virginia and as long as it doesn't get too cold too soon, I am going to love the opportunity to break out my hoodies and light jackets. It's also the time where I make the switch from iced to hot drinks, especially in the morning and late evening when temperatures are lower.

Today  wanted to share three vegan, cold weather beverages to keep you warm and cozy as we transition into Fall. Grab your biggest mugs and check them out!

London Fog

Earl Grey Tea


Coconut Sugar

Steamed/Frothed Almond or Soy Milk

1. Brew a cup of Earl Grey tea with 1/2 -1 tsp of lavender (I actually used a Green Earl Grey from Fortnum and Mason that I picked up in London)

2. Strain lavender and loose tea or remove tea bag

3. Add steamed frothed milk topped off with a little foam. (I don't have a milk steamer but I was able to get the same effect with an immersion blender, after heating almond milk on the stove)

4. Sprinkle coconut sugar on top of foam.

Golden Milk

1 cup of Almond or Soy Milk

1/2 teaspoon Tumeric Powder

1/2 teaspoon Ginger Powder

Dash of Cardamom Powder

1 cinnamon stick

Cracked Black Pepper

Coconut Sugar to taste

1. Warm vegan milk on low heat with the tumeric powder and cinnamon stick.

2. Once warmed, add ginger, cardamom, fresh cracked black pepper, and coconut sugar.

3. Remove cinnamon stick and enjoy

Hot Cocoa with Vegan Carmel Drizzle and Sea Salt

1 cup of Almond or Soy Milk

1 tablespoon vegan Hot Cocoa mix (I use the Lake Champlain organic hot cocoa mix. You can also make your own with cocoa powder and sugar.)

Vegan Marshmallows (I have been using Dandies but I heard recently that Trader Joe's has a house brand bag of marshmallows that has no gelatin and is super affordable. I need to make a trip out there soon!)

Vegan Caramel Drizzle (I made a batch using this recipe from Jessica in the Kitchen. Check out her website for more vegan recipes!)

Sea Salt Flakes (I use Maldon which you can get at most grocery stores and Amazon)

1. Warm vegan milk on low heat.

2. Add hot cocoa mix and whisk together

3. Pour hot cocoa into mug and top with 2-3 large marshmallows

4. Drizzle caramel sauce on top

5. Sprinkle sea salt flakes to finish
