Holiday entertaining doesn't have to be stressful or complicated.  

Updated: Nov 20, 2022



The Holidays are a great reason to get together with family and friends. Entertaining doesn’t have to be complicated. Try these easy and delicious drink recipes to pair with your holiday meals.


Adding vitality essential oils* to your favorite holiday drinks not only adds flavor but it also offers a little aromatherapy to your guests.

These essential oils are so concentrated that you only need a few drops to add a lot of flavor to your drinks and other dishes. A 5ml. bottle contains 200 drops, it goes a long way!

Make sure you stir your drinks well before you serve them.



Dairy Free Mexican Hot Chocolate


This is a quick and modern way of a very traditional Mexican hot chocolate with a healthier twist.

It is dairy free and you use a blender instead of making the froth manually with a ‘molinillo.’

Serves 4


Ingredients:

32 oz oat milk

2 cinnamon sticks

4 Tbsp. raw honey

Instructions:

In a quart saucepan warm the oat milk and cinnamon sticks until almost boiling.

Pour in a blender the milk mix.

Add 4 drops of cinnamon essential oil, raw cacao powder and honey.

Blend **

Serve hot


*The Young Living vitality essential oils that I use are FDA approved for oral intake.

**Be careful when you blend the hot mix because the lid may pop up.

Don’t fill the blender too high.

The productsI used, all together a cup of the hot chocolate is only 176 calories

You can also make it with coconut milk, or almond milk.

Mulled Wine

Serves 4

Ingredients:

1 bottle of red wine of your choice (not too dry) *

2 tbsps. of honey


Instructions:

You can warm the wine and keep it warm in the crockpot.

Mix the honey with the oils in a glass bowl and add to the warm wine. Stir well.

Serve warm on glass cups, not plastic!

Cheers!

*If you are going alcohol free this Christmas there are a few choices for alcohol- free wine as well.

Pumpkin Coffee Creamer

Ingredients:
