2 Hot Drinks to Warm the Soul

2 Hot Drinks to Warm the Soul

On the 2nd day of Christmas, FitCakes gave to me 2 hot drink recipes!

When the weather outside is frightful, there's almost nothing better than to cozy up inside with a steamy mug of something delicious.

Now I imagine you are wondering just how I am going to justify putting tasty/alcohol-infused libations on my healthy food website.  Or maybe not?  Okay, so I'll admit, they may not be healthiest of all things, and drinking one's calories is not generally recommended for weight-loss purposes.  

That being said, I do enjoy the occasional holiday cocktail (or even just a nice hot-chocolate!)  And the ones I've listed here are special - something about each drink is beneficial in it's own way (think cocoa powder, coconut oil, or a fruit juice.)  Make them with or without the suggested alcohol, and they're still really delicious.
