My hubby and I are cozy and warm in our home today, watching the snow drift slowly to the ground from our window. We’ve been living in a winter wonderland as of late; gallivanting in the snow by day, snuggling under bundles of blankets by night. And, of course, hot chocolate whenever possible.
Want some hot chocolate too? You’ll live with delicious recipe with maple whipped cream!
Happy December! We are truly in a Winter Wonderland here in Atlantic Canada and the holiday count down has begun. My husband adores this time of year and loves to make our little nest as festive as possible. We are in the mists of decorating and, in usual health-esteem fashion, have a variety of bite sized, healthy snacks on hand! Bliss Balls are a family fave!
Want to treat yourself to some too? Check out these Peanut Butter Chocolate Bliss Balls:
Last Sunday, during our weekly scheduled ‘Walking Dead’ hang out, I found myself craving a vanilla milkshake. Ice cream was a comfort food growing up and part of a serious mother-daughter hang out tradition. I think my Glenn withdrawals (seriously… I NEED TO KNOW) left me needing something sweet and distracting. Like a Vanilla Milkshake…
In typical Health-Esteem fashion I went to my kitchen and got creative. What I came up with is pretty freaking good if I do say so myself. And I do! This delicious, dairy free super star will leave you licking the bowl! And to top things off I threw in some Maple Whipped Cream for extra goodness.
You should treat yourself too! Here’s the recipe for this delicious, dairy free vanilla milkshake:
Lately I’ve been finding myself closing the window at night and snuggling up in my cozy blankets. It’s made me realize that summer is coming to a close… and while I adore fall, I’m a bit saddened to say goodbye to this warm, relaxing, wonderful time of year. So I’ve decided to cling to summer a bit harder, while I still can. One of my favourite ways to celebrate something is with a delicious treat that satisfies my sweet tooth and supports my health, so I went to the kitchen and got creative!
These Creamy Vanilla Bean Freeze Pops were the delicious outcome!
