Our Favorite Healthy Hot Drinks and Soups for Cozy Fall Nights
Well, the first day of autumn is just around the bend and the nights will soon be getting much cooler. If you’re like us, it’s time to bust out the blankets and cozy socks and get ready for some hot bevvies and soups to warm our bellies! We’ve shared our favorite hot drinks and soups for healthy autumn nights below!
If you’re the least bit under the weather or just need a kick of garlic to set you straight, give Wellness Mama’s Soothing Garlic Soup a shot. (This one isn’t vegan and calls for chicken broth and butter, but you can easily veganize it with some Earth Balance and a veggie or another favorite alternative broth – same with this Delicious and Simple Cushaw Soup— assuming you can find a grocer with a cushaw on hand.)
5-Minute Vegan Golden Milk
Only 8 ingredients and chock full of turmeric and fall spices, this wholesome blend is a super easy new healthy fall favorite of ours!
Simple Healthy Tomato Soup
Easy Peasy Crock Pot Hot Apple Cider
I can’t remember where we got this recipe, but we’ve cut out so much and made it so easy it’s really not even a recipe. Just grab two containers of regular apple juice from the store for a total of about 64 fl. oz. and 6 fresh whole cinnamon sticks (good quality). Put them all in the crock pot and cook on low for 3 hours – delightful hot cider ensues (and your house will smell divine too, just fyi). Some want to sweeten it up even more with extra ingredients, but that makes it far too sweet for us and not very healthy — however, do as you wish! Crock Pot Caramel Apple Cider is a favorite for many.
If you’re vegan and you’re craving some Indian flavors, make this one up real quick. If you’d prefer another choice, Vegan Richa’s also got mushroom soup with chickpea, vegan cream of mushroom, chipotle corn chowder, and vegan curried butternut squash soup.
Green Evi’s got another hot fall evening favorite with this nutritious and colorful creation. Serve it up alongside warm bread or homemade croutons for the win.
Five minutes to prep and five minutes to cook, this combination of flavors makes any fall night perfect. And PLEASE — go ahead and double up on the recipe – you know you’ll want more than just one cup of this stuff!
All the best of your childhood favorite cream of broccoli soup with a side of adult vegan flair. From beginning to prep to serving bowl, you’ll spend a total of 50 minutes on this one.
This one is heartier than the others with a kick of curry. Stir in a little bit of extra veggie stock if need be to thin things out if you find it too thick and chunky.
Heavy protein, a pinch of curry, and gorgeous golden turmeric gives this healthy blend its unique flavor and rich color. (This one is thick, too. Thin with veggie broth as needed.)
Prep time is five minutes; cook time is ten, for a total of 15 minutes here. Freshly grated/minced ginger root makes this one smell and taste absolutely divine.
Hot and healthy, you’ve got to try this out on a cold evening. Five total ingredients make this a simple delight — with the emphasis on delight! You’ll need a blender and a small saucepan for this one.
I can’t brag about this one enough. Six total ingredients (and one is optional) and a whole cup of freshly chopped ginger root makes this fragrant blend outstanding and perfect for a cold night or a rainy afternoon. The recipe makes one cup of latte, so double it up if you’re having a guest over.
