15 Healthiest Fall-Inspired Drink Recipes

15 Healthy Fall Drinks

1. Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
Fall means one thing... Pumpkin spiced everything! Kick off the day with a pumpkin pie protein shake, packed with 25 grams sure to keep hunger levels at bay.

2. Pumpkin Spice Latte
Continue the love for pumpkin spice with the notorious PSL (pumpkin spiced latte). But rather than ordering up a coffee loaded with sugar, give it a nutritional spin at home. Start by whisking a ½ cup of nonfat milk with one tablespoon of pumpkin puree over medium heat in a small pot. Continue to mix and add in a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Once the mixture becomes frothy, pour atop of your favorite coffee.

3. Spiced Pumpkin Punch
Still continuing the love for pumpkin... Adults can enjoy this spiced pumpkin punch. Recipe makes one serving, but feel free to make in bulk if hosting any dinner, event, or celebration for all to enjoy!

4. Chai Tea Latte
Instead of ordering up a chai tea latte rich in sugar and syrup, prepare this healthy hot drink in the comfort of your own home.

5. Hot Apple Cider
When it comes to warm, fall drinks, apple cider more than likely comes to mind. From the notorious fall fruit, to the spices of cloves, cinnamon, anise, and ginger, to the zest of lemon and orange, you do not want to miss out on this easy apple cider recipe! Add spiced rum if desired.

6. Apple Cider Mimosas
Kick off a fall brunch with these apple cider mimosas. And as if the mimosas were not convincing enough, enjoy one of these 10 healthy breakfast pizzas to get you out of bed, nine brunch bowls you will love, or eight breakfast taco recipes!

7. Pear Mimosas
But if desiring pear over apple... Try this pear mimosa recipe.

8. Apple and Pear White Sangria
Enjoy both pear and apple? Get the best of both worlds with this refreshing fall drink!

9. Mulled Wine
Developing flavors from cinnamon, clove, anise, and orange, mulled wine is similar to the hot apple cider recipe above but with the addition of red wine. And rather than sipping from a standard wine glass, enjoy this mulled wine recipe in your favorite mug!

10. Mulled Pear and Ginger
Shake up a traditional mulled wine recipe with this pear and ginger variation.

11. Rum Hot Toddy
Though the hot toddy is touted as a natural cold remedy, the warmth and spices makes it a perfect healthy hot drink for this fall!

12. Pomegranate Mojito
This purely pomegranate mojito is the perfect transition into fall! The fresh lime and mint are not only refreshing, but transforms pomegranate juice into a healthy fall drink.
