This warming drink will get the blood flowing on these cold days. My hands and feet can be stubborn and difficult to keep warm. This drink helps to get some warmth to my extremities and it is super easy to make. It is great for people with diabetes, as cinnamon has the ability to regulate blood sugar. It is also great for people who run cold or have poor circulation.
1 cinnamon stick
1 (1 inch) piece of fresh ginger, peeled and cut into a few slices
2 cups or so of water
a few pine nuts
sweetener if desired: I recommend local raw honey over all others
Combine the cinnamon, ginger, and water in a pot, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer for around 15 minutes. Strain, add honey and pine nuts.
