Creamy eggnog. Candy-studded gingerbread. Rich, sugary Chocolate. Christmas isn’t necessarily the healthiest time of year—or the easiest for people with diet restrictions.
Indulgence is all around, but you needn’t succumb. Luckily, for organic eaters like us, there are plenty of ways to incorporate your favorite Christmas treats into a healthy lifestyle. Here are just a few organic snacks to enjoy this Christmas.
Organic Eggnog with Coconut Milk
So you’re not ready to give up your favorite milky holiday beverage. We don’t blame you. Luckily, you only need to swap two ingredients for a homemade organic eggnog that’s as healthy as it is delicious: milk and eggs.
Beat two large, fresh organic eggs with an electric blender. Mix with coconut milk (a healthier alternative), melted raw honey, water, vanilla, and ground nutmeg. Chill for a few hours and serve with a cinnamon stick—and some brandy, if you prefer!
The Healthiest Gingerbread House
Instead of decorating your gingerbread house with a full-on sugar high, swap out traditional candies for dried fruits and nuts—a Mediterranean favorite!
Construct your house with Annie’s organic cinnamon graham crackers, and opt for organic brown sugar for your house’s glue. It’s a fully organic way to relive your favorite childhood Christmas snack. And, if you have kids, it’ll save you from a mega sugar crash after presents time.
Organic Santa Lollipops
Nothing screams Christmas more than festive chocolate lollipops. This year, get down with Santa, Rudolph, and the whole gang in a fully organic way.
Melt a few bars of Nibble organic dark chocolate in a bowl, and pour them onto your holiday chocolate lollipop molds. Set in the fridge for a few hours, and voila! It’s chocolate Santa on a stick. Organic, of course.
Keep it healthy this Christmas with festive, organic snacks.
Merry Christmas from your friends at Nanoosh!
