by Allison Ryan
Festive flavors aren’t just found on plates and platters during the holidays. Drink and be merry with these beverages!
A Frosty Treat
For a gingerbread dessert that does not require gumdrop buttons, try Love Grows Wild’s Gingerbread Milkshake. This easy treat comes together in about 60 seconds, and it tastes as good as a batch of cookies. Plus, it comes with an added dose of calcium!
Make It Hot
In Katrina’s Kitchen has warm and toasty beverages to fill your holiday mugs. Her Strawberry White Hot Chocolate topped with a dollop of homemade whipped cream is sure to be loved by kids of all ages, and her Eggnog Hot Chocolate is the perfect way to warm up after a day of family fun. Both are made extra creamy with milk, which also packs in the protein!
Skip the coffee shop lines and prices — give Shugary Sweets’ Mocha Latte a try! This easy recipe will give you a delicious boost to power through last-minute holiday shopping and gift-wrapping. Not to mention, no expresso machine needed to whip this up — just a microwave!
For Adults Only
This Christmas cocktail is sure to warm your belly! Well Plated’s Hot Buttered Bourbon has the perfect proportions of sweet and spiked and is made with apple cider, seasonal spices and your favorite bourbon.
Instead of buying this holiday classic at the store, make your own Easy Homemade Eggnog using Will Cook For Friends’ recipe. Don’t miss her tips on how to adjust your ‘nog to make it sweeter, creamier, or even kid-friendly!
