Warming up in winter takes no time at all when you’re cuddling your morning cup of coffee. But for mums-to-be who are steering clear of caffeine, finding a hot drink with the same hug-in-a-mug feel is harder than it sounds.
To help keep you (and your bump) toasty during the colder months, we’ve hunted down a stack of delicious caffeine-free hot drinks for you to make at home.
Here are 9 cups of joy to warm you up when you’re off the coffee.
Start your day with a cup of saffron gold milk. The sun may not be shining outside but we guarantee this turmeric blend will have you beaming in seconds.
An apple a day
Wind down on winter nights with a mug of mulled apple juice. The delicious combination of star anise, cloves, honey and ginger packs a mighty flavour punch.
Super food, super drink
This rich and delicious hot cacao gets a superfood boost from a pinch of mood-boosting maca. Like we needed any more reasons to dive right in.
Beet the blues
Crammed with vitamins and nutrients, slurping a cup of warming beet juice is sure to give you that ‘pick-me-up’ without an ounce of caffeine in sight.
Add a little spice
It’s frothy, flavourful and a little bit fierce (thanks cayenne pepper!). We’re loving everything about this spiced almond milk
Cosy with carrots
Don’t knock it til you’ve tried it. A glass of warm apple and carrot drink will tick all your winter wish lists.
Tastes like Christmas
Take your senses to the land of snow with a healthy take on the gingerbread latte. The clever addition of cacao butter creates a heavenly silky smooth texture – yum!
Drinking bone broth has wide range of benefits. It’s high in mineral content, helps ease gut inflammation and is a fantastic source of protein. The fact that it’s ridiculously tasty is just an added bonus.
It may seem simple, but steeping a bunch of fresh mint in boiling water releases natural sweetness you can’t get from a conventional tea bag. Homemade peppermint tea for the win!
