17 Warming Drinks for Winter (for our friends in the southern hemisphere!)

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Here in the southern hemisphere it is cold and wet in many areas so drinking cold juice is not always appealing or inviting. Adding a few additions or making a few changes can turn that cold drink into a warming beverage that seems more appealing for a cold winter’s day!

Our past autumn juices post encouraged juices that contained fruits and vegetables that were all in season and suitable for the weather changes. Now we are well and truly into our colder months it’s time for some warming juice recipes. Adding spices into juices certainly acts as a warming agent particularly ginger and cayenne pepper.

 Here is a list of fruits and vegetables that are now in season.

Fruits – Grapefruit, kiwi fruit, lemons, mandarins, oranges, banana, pears, rhubarb

Vegetables – Brussels sprouts, carrots, fennel, potatoes, silverbeet, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, cucumbers, leek, turnip, beetroot, celeriac, celery, kohlrabi, onions, parsnips, pumpkin, sweet potato.

Warming Spices for the colder months – cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper, ginger, turmeric, cloves, nutmeg and chilli. Here is more on the benefits of spices!

Here is a list of great warming winter juices to enjoy:

Here are a few warming smoothies to enjoy!

Warming broths are also highly encouraged and can be consumed while completing a juice only reboot or any of the other plans. You can also enjoy these 3 broths anytime.

It is also nice to consume warming herbal teas, particularly ones that contain spices. My personal favourite is Celestial Bengal Spice – which you can buy in health food stores and health food sections of the supermarket. A great homemade dairy-free chai tea is also very warming and delicious!

I hope these suggestions warm you up for the winter. Enjoy!
