Healthy – Festive Holiday Drinks

With all the parties and family gatherings this month, I thought you might like some healthy ideas for festive drinks. You don’t have to feel deprived to drink healthy this season. You can sip something yummy that’s healthy too. So go ahead and have your party! Make it festive and fun!  Yummy too! And brimming with healthy ingredients.

Festive Minty Coconut Water

  • Pour 8-10 ounces of pure coconut water over ice
  • Add several sprigs of fresh mint
  • Garnish with a small wedge of pineapple or lemon

Cran-Apple Cocktail

Serves 1

Studies show that cranberries are loaded with acids that researchers believe are useful in dissolving fat deposits. When fat deposits settle in the body, they are hard to get rid of, so it’s best to get them before they get “hooked” on you. Some studies suggest that the enzymes in cranberries can aid metabolism, which can also boost weight loss. If you want to avoid the sugar from the apples, just juice the cranberries and add to water with a splash of lemon. Or get unsweetened cranberry juice and add 2 Tbsp. to a glass of water.

  • 1 cup cranberries, fresh or thawed if frozen
  • 2 apples (green are lower in sugar)


Cut produce to fit your juicer’s feed tube. With the machine o#, pour in the berries and top with the plunger, which will keep the berries from flying out. Then turn the machine on and push the berries through, followed by the apples. Stir and pour over ice. Top with a sprig of mint. Replenish oil as needed, changing out oil if brown bits form (scrap oil into a bowl lined with a strainer so you can use the oil once more for panfrying).

No MOO No SUGAR Eggnog

(Dairy and Sugar-Free!)

Serves 4


  • 1 12oz can full-fat coconut milk, at room temperature
  • 1/4. cup unsweetened plain or vanilla almond milk
  •  2 eggs (pastured or free range)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 5-6 drops stevia (I recommend Sweet Leaf Vanilla Creme or English Toffee)
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg (fresh if possible, grated with a microplane)
  • 1/2. tsp. cinnamon


  1. In a blender, combine coconut milk, almond milk, eggs, vanilla, stevia, nutmeg and cinnamon.
  2. Blend on high speed until the mixture is frothy.
  3. Chill before serving.
  4. Pour into glasses, and garnish with a dusting of cinnamon and a cinnamon stick. Cheers and happy holidays!


To prevent the risk of salmonella or other food-borne illness, dip the eggs in boiling water for 30 seconds. This will sanitize the eggs.

Coconutty Whipped Cream Topping

You may want to top your eggnog with Coconutty Whipped Cream.


  • 1 can of full-fat coconut milk
  • Pure vanilla extract
  • Liquid Stevia


Start with a can of full-fat coconut milk. Native Forest is the brand I use. Don’t get one with guar gum as it emulsifies the coconut milk. That is not what you want. You want it separated with the cream on top. Chill the can overnight. Place your mixing bowl in the freezer for 5 minutes before making the whipped cream. Remove the coconut milk can from the refrigerator and fillip it upside down. Pour the liquid into another bowl; you won’t use it for this recipe. Scoop the coconut cream into your chilled bowl.

Now whip the cream until fluffy. Add vanilla and liquid stevia to taste. This is a great topping for your eggnog, but it’s also good for any dessert.
