5 Decadent Vegan Drinks for Winter

It’s officially chilly out there! Rather than turn up the thermostat this winter, warm yourself from the inside out with these decadent vegan drinks.

Of course, you could warm yourself up with a hot cup of tea, but isn’t there something about the cold weather that makes you crave a rich, decadent drink to warn your belly and your soul? Folks usually associate drinks like hot cocoa and chai tea with cow’s milk, but armed with some tasty milk alternatives and a careful eye for label-reading, you can satisfy your sweet tooth with a cruelty-free mug instead.

Need a little inspiration to fill your mug? We’ve got five decadent vegan drinks that are sure to please! On the next page, check out the recipe for super-rich coconut hot chocolate!

Whoops, meant MONSANTO, not "Monsanta". They're no "santa".

Anne G., thanks for pointing that out. I checked the label and 2nd ingredient is milk powder. Now, I'm not vegan so I don't care about that, BUT while reading the label, I see Swiss Miss is put out by CON-AGRA, and in my opinon, they are right in the same category as Monsanta............EVIL GIANTS. I guess I'll have to switch brands. DANG, I like the "No Added Sugar" formula, especially to put a "shot" of Amaretto in when it's freezing outside!

Diane L., if you look at the list of ingredients on your Swiss Miss box, it probably has milk powder in it, thus not vegan.
