This is a rich version of cocoa and what a treat it makes! In the 18th century Europeans married milk with chocolate and sugar. Soon after, it became a very popular after dinner drink!
Adding a pinch of cayenne gives it a little spice too! Adapted from Country Living magazine.
Refreshing and healthy too! This works best on a summer sunny day! In the winter I just make this by heating the water to boiling, then steeping the tea bags for 10-20 minutes. Adapted from the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
This is a delicious therapeutic tea, with a nice apple aroma and flavor. It has been shown to help with ailments ranging from stress and insomnia to menstrual cramps and upset stomachs. Great to serve on a hot summer day! Psst, it's good in the winter too!
This is a light, refreshing drink very popular in central America. A great thirst quencher! The recipe was inspired by Maria Gonzales, a street food vendor and Whole Planet Foundation borrower, who lives in León, Nicaragua, via the Whole Foods store.
This drink was concocted at the Moosewood restaurant for the female staff, especially those in mid-life. The soy milk adds phytoestrogens to the diet and is highly beneficial to women's health.

I spent some time in Guatemala many years ago and we had a lovely vegetarian dinner at a local woman's house on New Year's Eve. Oh, it was so good! There were these tamales with raisins and we were served a tea that tasted of apples and chamomile. Here is my attempt to duplicate that recipe! I wish I could remember more about the tamales.......Outside, the local folk were shooting off sticks of dynamite (for lack of fireworks), but we didn't care, we were in foodie vegetarian heaven!
According to Gourmet magazine, this tea soothes and refreshes after a big meal. This was taken from a Korean menu. Brew a pot whenever you feel a little under the weather. Nibbling on the pine nuts as you sip the hot tea helps soften it's strong flavors.
This is what I drink now instead of soda! So easy and so much better for you too! Use what fruit juice you like, but apple, grape and cranberry are favorites! This will be a favorite for kids and adults on hot summer days. Aadapted from Whole Foods.
