Healthy drinks recipes: you will never avoid

Most of the time when we think of drinking beverages, it is a matter of how they are made and not what they taste like. Drinking a glass of water can be refreshing or energizing. A soda on its own is merely water, but the flavor, sweetness & texture can vary based on the ingredients used. Here is an interesting article on healthy drinks you didn't know existed. This would have been easy to write at one point. The difference between coffee and tea is that there the quality of the beverage is much more important than the quantity. For example, black coffee has a high caffeine content while green tea has a lot less. Both coffee and tea contribute to the health and strength of your body in different ways. To keep things simple I will use this blog as an introduction for my recipes here. If you don't use the words "healthy" and "drinkable" in your title, then you are using them incorrectly. I know most people prefer alcohol but some foods contain other ingredients in them. So don't be surprised if certain items are listed under any one food group or ingredient. My personal preference is that whatever I am writing about must help my readers in some way. With that being said, let's begin!

Chocolate Chia Milk

 Milk is a good option for people who do not like dairy products in their diet. Milk has an excess amount of calcium which helps to build strong bones & teeth. It also contains essential fatty acids which are found almost exclusively in milk products and are necessary for cells to function properly. When consumed without adding sugar or fat it is called unsweetened milk or plain milk. Chocolate is considered by many to be a superfood because of its high fiber content (1-5 g/cup) and antioxidants. One cup of plain chocolate gives you almost 2 g of carbohydrates but only 14 calories. On low-carb days, it still tastes great and makes for fantastic dessert bars!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal 

 Many newbies to vegetarianism love peanut butter, especially kids. Peanut Butter can be added to oatmeal or cereal for extra protein. You may want to add peanuts, too. Just make sure the amount is limited and that the pecan nuts are from Brazil.

Peanut Protein Smoothie Bowls 

 Your favorite Nutella smoothie bowl is actually very nutritious! Adding protein powder to your blender makes the creamy nutritional boost easily accessible. Mix up all the ingredients (peanut butter, yogurt, cocoa powder) before putting the blend together by combining until frothy. Top with nut cheese and enjoy!

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer 

Ever wonder why Pumpkin Spice licks every morning? Well, I heard that pumpkin spice is rich in cinnamon, sugar, and allspice making it an awesome combo. There are so many delicious combinations of pumpkin spice whether you combine ginger syrup or maple syrup. Another advantage of using pumpkin spice in coffee creamers is it adds a touch of sweetness. I personally cannot live without pumpkin spice-flavored coffee, it really does add sweetness to our daily lives!

Blueberry Cinnamon Yogurt Parfait 

Blueberries are packed with vitamin C which increases blood flow to muscles, thus improving circulation. Also, berries have magnesium, which acts as a blood thinner and lowers cholesterol levels. They are loaded with phytonutrients and antioxidants. Enjoy these parfaits during breakfast and you'll get a nice dose of both nutrients from blueberries.

Cinnamon Pecan Pancakes 

 Making your pancake batter in the oven can be quite simple if you have a reliable hot air fryer. If your pan seems dry enough, whisk ingredients for 3 minutes to thicken. Finally, stir in 1-2 tbsp of baking powder for a fluffier consistency.

Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn

 Whether you choose sweet potato or regular corn you can prepare corn on the cob with honey, maple syrup, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and spices. Place just half a cup of popcorn kernels into a shallow dish. Pour 1 tsp of each flavoring over it and bake for about 5 to 7 min or microwave for 35 seconds. Cut and serve warm!
