Brrr! It’s June and the coldest season of the year is just starting! What are your plans? You probably just stay within the comfort of your own home, right? Anyway, that brings us to the most important question: What foods and drinks are you planning to prepare?\nUncertain or have no definite ideas yet? Worry not; we’ve got your back! Scroll down and read on because, in this blog post, we are going to be listing some of the best foods and drinks that will surely keep you warm and cosy all winter!\n\n CREAMY PUMPKIN SOUP\n\nNormally, when one says pumpkin, you might associate it with Halloween or perhaps even Cinderella’s famous royal carriage. However, that’s not the case here in Australia! If you aren’t an Aussie, you might find it strange to find variants of pumpkin recipes in every restaurant that you go to, and oftentimes, one of these is pumpkin soup. Aside from pumpkin, its ingredients include chicken stock cubes, sweet and white potatoes, and a range of thick cream and spices. Give it a try and instantly change the way you think about pumpkin!\n\n PASTA BAKES\n\nA pasta bake is one of the best meals that you can make – winter or otherwise. Not only is it healthy and delicious, but it is also very easy to prepare. Moreover, it comes in a lot of different forms so you can actually even eat it all week long! Among the famous recipes are chicken and pumpkin (see? We told you that it’s versatile!), cheesy veggies, and creamy Bolognese. Whatever your cravings are, you can simply incorporate them into your pasta bake.\n\n CHICKEN CASSEROLE\n\nJust like pasta bakes, there’s also a wide variety of ingredients that you can use in making a chicken casserole. Some common ones are tomato and olives but you can basically put any vegetable that you like and you’ll instantly have something that not only fills the stomach but also warms the heart, too!\n\n DARK HOT CHOCOLATE\n\nYou simply can’t forget to make a delectable cup of hot chocolate when the chilly weather starts kicking in! Thick and bitterly sweet, this is definitely a go-to drink to keep you from getting cold on a freezing, winter night. Add a few marshmallows or other toppings of your preference and you’re good to go!\n\n CINNAMON TEA\n\nIf you’re not exactly someone with a sweet tooth who’d enjoy hot chocolate, then you can go for another all-time favorite like cinnamon tea! Made from the inner bark of the cinnamon tree, this offers several health benefits. For instance, cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants and can be especially helpful in protecting your body from diseases during this current global pandemic. Rich in flavor? Wallet-friendly? Healthy? Well, it’s sure to be your new cup of tea in more ways than one!\nAside from the aforementioned foods and drinks, there are a lot of other options that are well-suited for this frosty season.
