If you are suffering from permanent cold-hand syndrome or are looking for something to remind you of warmer days, this list of 10 cozy recipes will be all you need to get you though the last few weeks of this frosty tundra. 

Tropical Green Smoothie Bowl

Now, I know what you're thinking, "Maddie, how is a freezing cold smoothie bowl going to be any good for me in the dead of winter?" Here's my logic: over winter break I went on vacation, and almost everyday we would walk down the beach to this little shack and get these amazing smoothie bowls topped with fresh fruit and coconut granola and it was honestly the best! Since then, I make myself a smoothie bowl pretty much every morning to remind myself of that warm tropical weather, despite the reality that sits outside my window. I guess I use the "imagine yourself in a warm tropical paradise" approach to convincing myself I'm warm. 

Vegan Gluten-Free Cinnamon Roll

If you're not in the mood for a smoothie in the middle of winter, that's totally understandable. Instead, try these vegan and gluten-free cinnamon rolls from Minimalist Baker (who also has a Gluten-Full version) that will remind you of those cozy winter mornings filled with Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls and simpler times. This take on the old guilty pleasure is so simple to make and won't give you that feeling of just haven eaten 3 cinnamon rolls, even if you have.

Golden Milk Turmeric Latte

If you crave a little TLC during this time of year and feel yourself needing a helping hand, this antioxidant packed Turmeric Latte; spiced with ginger, black pepper, and cinnamon, will having you feeling warm and rejuvenated in no time. Its perfect if you feel a cold coming on or just need something to wrap your frosty hands around. This cozy recipe is sure to have your back.

Vegetarian Pho

Pronounced 'Fuh', this flavour pack Vietnamese soup is, at least in my opinion, the best way to keep warm in the winter. If you're feeling extra cold, add your favourite hot sauce to this cozy recipe to kick up the heat. Plus, pho can give you much-needed nutrients and a good portion of veggies.

Salmon Poke Bowl

"Again with the summer foods!" you might be thinking to yourself, BUT, I've never known any one of my friends who can't have their winter blues cured by a little sushi. Poke bowls are essentially deconstructed sushi rolls plus a few extra treats. It's a great way to get a lot of veggies and protein into your diet without having to cook. Just cut up your favourite toppings, like avocado, cucumbers, and add some edamame beans, and you've got a giant sushi bowl ready to power you through your day. 

10-Spice Vegetable Soup

This cozy recipe is perfect for the "end of week fridge" situation where you don't really have any food besides a few carrots and a small handful of spinach. This simple yet delicious recipe turns the odds-and-ends of your veggies, with the help of some staples from the pantry, into a heart bowl of soup to get you through the rest of the week.

Buffalo Cauliflower Wings

If you're anything like me, and find yourself stuck in an endless marathon of Hot One's episodes (watching celebrities battle their way through a like up on the spiciest wings), at one point or another you may develop an insatiable craving for hot sauce. These spicy cauliflower wings are a great vessel for a variety of mouth melting sauces, letting you join in on the fun (or pain).

Vegan Tomato Soup

As a kid, Campbell's Tomato Soup and a grilled cheese was always my go-to lunch on a cold day; however, as my palate and diet evolved, I was in search of a dairy-free version of the recipe I hold so dearly to my heart. And here it is! Probably one of the best copy-cat recipes I have found will having you wanting winter to stick around a little just so you can enjoy it.

Red Velvet Hot Chocolate

When regular hot chocolate just isn't enough, this decadent and nostalgic red velvet flavoured cup of goodness is just what you need when the weather calls for staying inside and watching movies all day. Plus, this hot chocolate will take you to a whole new level of comfort because it tastes just like cake.

Grapefruit Olive Oil Cake

If you are looking for a light, citrusy, and sweet way to remind you that summer isn't all too far away, this grapefruit olive oil cake will have you coming back slice and slice again. If you are gluten and dairy free, this recipe works perfectly by simply replacing the flour and milk with your alternatives.

Make your cinnamon buns and eat them too. This winter, combat the blues by getting into the kitchen and making some delicious recipes to warm you right up. Stay cozy, my friends!
