There have been more and more specialty coffee shops popping up everywhere. And while the beverages are tasty and they provide a fun environment, we want to remind you that you can also make some delicious winter beverages at home on those days you cannot make it to the coffee shops or to save a little money. During the holiday season, we even provide information to make these delicious drinks as a gift for someone. However, we want to make sure that you are watching your reliance on caffeine. It can help give us a boost of energy but it is just another substance that we can become addicted to. In fact, the Mayo Clinic recommends less than 400mg/day of caffeine. We recommend finding other ways to increase your energy such as getting enough sleep, enough water, a healthy diet and the recommended amount of exercise.

If you want to learn more about some delicious beverages to enjoy, join us for a “Warm Up with Winter Beverages” workshop at the Granville County Library in Berea on Thursday, February 8th, 2024 at 5:30 p.m. Learn how to make drink mixes as gifts, hot cocoa bombs, and more during this workshop. Spots are limited. Register for this class by calling 919-693-1231 or email maggie.hall@granvillecounty.org

Below is a drink mix to warm you up from the North Dakota State University Extension. For more information on our Food for Thought programs, activities and recipes, check us out online at http://facebook.com/persongranvillefcs
