Healthy Winter Drink Ideas

Healthy and festive drink ideas for the holiday season! Here are two delicious ideas using the goodness of Almond Breeze® non-dairy almond milk. These tasty beverages will surely keep you and guests merry; and since almond milk is bursting with natural nutrients (Vitamin, A, D, & E), you don’t have to feel guilty. It’s available in Original, Vanilla and Chocolate at any Whole Foods or natural foods section in your grocer.


2 cups Almond Breeze® Vanilla
2 ounces spiced rum
1 ounce brandy
1/3 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 teaspoon nutmeg, plus more for garnish
Light whipped cream to garnish
Slivered almonds to garnish

Over low heat, combine Almond Breeze® Vanilla, rum, brandy, almond extract, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium saucepan, stirring constantly with a whisk until very warm. Pour into large mugs, leaving an inch of room to the top. Top with whipped cream, almonds and a sprinkle of nutmeg.


2 cups Almond Breeze® Original
6 ounces bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa, plus more for garnish
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place the chocolate and cocoa in a mixing bowl. Heat Almond Breeze® in a saucepan. Pour over chocolate and cocoa and whisk well to melt and make frothy. Stir in vanilla. If available, use a hand blender or hand mixer to make it even more frothy on top. Pour into mugs and serve immediately. Dust with cocoa to garnish and serve with Chocolate-Covered Almonds.
