4 Low-Calorie Holiday Drinks

Holiday Chaos Calmer


Soothe away holiday stress with this relaxing brew. The active ingredient is chamomile tea, which acts as a mild sedative that may help ease anxiety. Blending the fragrant tea with sweet apple cider and cozy cinnamon creates a comforting drink that feels like a warm hug on chilly winter evenings.


Combine 1/2 cup cider and 1/2 cup water in a mug and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes, or until boiling. Add one chamomile tea bag, one strip of lemon peel, one cinnamon stick, and steep for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bag and cinnamon stick, take your first sip…and breathe a sigh of relief.
