Hot and Healthy Winter Drink Recipes

Instead of sugary flavored coffee drinks with whipped cream or hot toddies with alcohol, which is linked to increased risk for several types of cancer, turn to a steaming cup of healthy tea, cider or chai that makes the most of cancer-preventing ingredients.

Here are three popular recipes from AICR’s trove of Healthy Recipes:

 cinnamint green tea

Cinnamint Green Tea

 ginger turmeric cider

Ginger and Turmeric Hot Cider

 chocolate chai

Hot Chocolate Chai

 Cinnamint Green Tea

A dash of apple juice sweetens this tea naturally. Tea contains phytochemical compounds called flavonoids that may protect against cancer, studies show. With warming hints of spicy ginger and refreshing mint, this drink is sure to be a favorite treat.

1 small bunch mint, about 15 sprigs, preferably spearmint
4 3-inch cinnamon sticks (optional)
1-2 thin slices fresh ginger (optional)
6 cups cold water
4 bags green tea, regular or decaffeinated
6 Tbsp. frozen apple juice concentrate, or to taste

Place mint, cinnamon sticks and ginger, if using, in large saucepan. Add water, cover pot and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

Add tea bags and steep 5 minutes. Remove tea bags, mint, ginger and cinnamon sticks, reserving sticks. Sweeten hot tea to taste with apple juice concentrate.  Pour into mugs, add cinnamon sticks for garnish and serve.

Makes 6 servings.
