Winter can be one of the dreariest times of the year. You've just come off a holiday high, the weather is cold, and we're cooped up inside. While the days are getting longer and we're settling into our New Year routines, sometimes all we need is a little comfort to help get us through the rest of winter and stick to the new intentions that we've set for ourselves.
If you need a little push to help get you through the next few months — from avoiding the flu to self-care rituals and comfort foods — we've got just what you're looking for. Grab your LĒVO and dive in!
Here are 10 infused winter recipes to help you get through the season:

Sometimes it’s OK to be lazy. And eat cake. That’s why we love mug cakes! Mug cakes can be made quickly, popped in the microwave, and ready in 2 minutes to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Make it even easier by using our Organic Brownie Mix as the base. Try our infused peanut butter chocolate mug cake recipe.
When the temperatures drop, layering becomes a must and the cozy life becomes a lifestyle. But cozy doesn’t start or end with sweats—food can be the ultimate cozy factor.

It’s one of our most comforting infused winter recipes.
