Autumn Drinks

The weather has been exceptionally crappy the past couple of weeks. I'm ok with it being cooler, but it rains almost every day. So everything is damp and it feels extra cold. My hot drinks intake has increased because of this.

I recently stocked up on hot chocolate and chai latte mix at The Bulk Barn here. It's my favourite thing to do before Winter hits because it's so much cheaper and they always have different flavours, like salted caramel hot chocolate or mint hot chocolate. So it's fun buying as much as I want of each of the flavours.

For the longest time now, I've always made my own 'mocha' using powder hot chocolate and instant coffee. I think it helped ease me into coffee since it was sweeter. It's still a treat I make myself every once in a while. Adding marshmallows sometimes happens too...

My other hot drink treat has been Pumpkin Spice Brulee tea with french vanilla creamer. I cannot take credit for coming up with this combo on my own. Valerie gave me the idea a little while back on twitter and I've been drinking it ever since. 

It's great because you can control the sweetness of this drink. I'm all for Pumpkin Spice Lattes but they can be unbelievably sweet which I'm not always looking for. Plus they cost $4 a pop. This is a healthier and less sugary pumpkin treat. I highly recommend Teavana's Pumpkin Spice Brulee tea!  

What do you like to drink during the cold weather months?

  1. Oh wow!! Salted caramel chocolate sounds delicious. I'm still working my way though the hot chocolate haul I was given at Christmas in 2012! Six massive tins in all kinds of flavours- I've got some Christmas Pudding and some Banoffee left. xxx

    1. Mmm hot chocolate... Ok those hot chocolate flavours sounds amazing! Last year, The Bulk Barn had mint hot chocolate. I'm hoping when I go back that there will be some of that flavour.
