Top three healthier coffee drinks for Christmas

Many coffee shops and restaurants offer seasonal specials on their drinks menu, but these options can often be loaded with extra sugar and cream. While Christmas is traditionally the time of indulgence, not everyone wants to blow their calorie budget on their morning coffee! We’ve put together some healthier suggestions that will still mean you can get your menu into the Christmas spirit.

Gingerbread latte

For one serving, you’ll need:

What to do:

Put the milk and spices in a small saucepan, and heat until almost boiling. Stir in the coffee, and add the treacle, stirring to dissolve. Alternatively, use a milk foamer to heat the milk.

Seasalt caramel creme brulee latte

This drink has a complicated name, but is very simple to make. For one serving, you’ll need:

Make the latte as usual, by foaming the milk and combining it with the coffee. Top with a single teaspoon on whipped cream, and drizzle with caramel syrup. Just before serving, sprinkle with a tiny pinch of seasalt, which adds texture and brings out the sweet flavours. For a hazelnut mocha version of this drink, replace the seasalt with a pinch of chocolate powder and the caramel syrup with hazelnut.

Chocolate almond latte

Using a small amount of dark chocolate chips adds flavour without too many calories.

For one serving, you’ll need:

Heat the milk either with a milk foamer or in a pan, and combine with the coffee. Add the chocolate chips and stir until dissolved. Top with a dusting of cocoa or chocolate powder.
