Saturday Recipes - Winter Drinks!

Today I dream about getting warmed up by these delicious drinks in the winter time!

This afternoon I read that it's only a matter of weeks until it gets really cold in the UK so I thought it's a perfect time for the winter drinks recipes post!

There's nothing better on a winter evening than a hot cup of cocoa or hot chocolate so have a look at this week's recipes :) Or a tea, but everyone knows that the best winter tea is the one with honey and a slice of lemon so no recipe needed here! With delicious drinks like that even the long and cold winter evening can be charming and special!

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Lately I've been going a little mad on pumpkin recipes, I know :) But trust me, this latte is so delicious! It's made with real pumpkin puree not some fake sugary syrup plus it's vegan and gluten-free! With a dollop of whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice on the top it must be one of my favourite winter drinks! Get the recipe here!

Lavender Hot Chocolate

I love hot chocolate - who doesn't?! My favourite is that hazelnut one from Starbucks but now I found another serious contender! It's rich and creamy and thanks to the fragrant lavender also pretty comforting :) Find the recipe here!

Oreo Ice Cream Cocoa

It looks heavenly! I'm up for anything with Oreos in it, here I also get my favorite Cookies & Cream ice cream so it's a double win! Click here for the recipe! Or if you don't have Oreos you can make a simple version of it, click here!

We always see people drinking it in American movies and it's a symbol of Christmas but I've never tried it! I have to fix that mistake soon - it's creamy and full of spices like nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon. Get the recipe here!

Drink up! :)


  1. Właśnie dlatego lubię zimę, a mój ulubiony napój rozgrzewający to oczywiście gorąca czekolada z dużą ilością bitej śmietany i...grzaniec galicyjski z pomarańczą:)

  2. O nieee, wszystko wygląda i brzmi cudownie a nie jestem w stanie nic zrobić w tej mojej beznadziejnej, norweskiej pseudo-kuchni (bo nazwanie tego kuchnią to profanacja wszystkich kuchni świata), jeszcze wszystkie składniki tutaj są taaak drogieee :(

  3. Pyszniste napitki,
    tyle że potwornie kaloryczne.
    Po zimie nie zmieściłabym się w żadne spodnie:)

  4. These look so so delicious, but every time I try to do something like this it looks like simple coco drink.
