Favorite Vegan Winter Drinks

Here are my favorite drinks for the Winter season.  Some of them are not Vegan, but I will tell you how to make them vegan if you want.  Make sure to use soy milk, almond milk, etc in replacement of milk.  Use a vegan butter substitute (like Earth Balance) in place of butter, and use vegan chocolate instead of just regular chocolate.   That’s pretty much all it takes to convert a recipe into a vegan friendly one.  I hope you enjoy the recipes.  I’ve included recipes for both smoothies and hot drinks.

Favorite Smoothies

  • Pumpkin Pie Monster: This one is already a vegan recipe so no need to worry about switching up any of the ingredients.
  • Frozen Mocha Hot Chocolate: This isn’t a vegan recipe so remember to replace the milk with whatever you normally use, and remember to get vegan hot chocolate mix and vegan chocolate syrup.
  • Pumpkin Gingerbread Smoothie: This is a vegan recipe, but I don’t add the chia seeds.

Favorite Hot Drinks

  • Vegan Coconut Milk Latte: This is my standard latte recipe.  Yum!  Sorry, but I just found out this link doesn’t work. 😦  See recipe in the comments section below.
  • Spiced Hot Dark Chocolate: The recipe calls for soy milk – just remember to buy vegan chocolate if you want the recipe to be vegan.
  • Homade Chai Lattes: This isn’t a vegan recipe so substitute the milk and don’t use honey.  Instead use  agave or a vegan sugar or “Sugar in the Raw”.
  • Hot Buttered Lemonade: This recipe isn’t vegan either, just substitute the butter for a vegan brand.  I use Earth Balance.
  • Pumpkin Spice Latte:  This recipe isn’t vegan so you’ll need to substitute the milk if you want it to be vegan.

  1. The link for the coconut milk latte doesn’t work. =(

  2. Oh, No! Sorry about that. Ok, here’s the recipe. Heat 1 cup of coconut milk and 1/2 cup of strong coffee (or espresso) until the coconut milk just starts to bubble. (stirring constantly) Remove from heat and add sweetner and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract. If you don’t like vanilla you can leave it out, I like mine with the vanilla.

  3. Yum! Can’t wait to try the Hot Buttered Lemonade. Could any recipe with the words “Hot” and “Buttered” in the name be bad?????
