I LOVE sweets. I love being surrounded by all of the peppermint bark and pie and syrupy lattes this time of year. But I also love fueling my body with things that nourish it everyday. One of my favorite life hacks is finding ways to make healthy alternatives out of my favorite comfort foods, swapping out a few ingredients here and there so that I never feel like I'm depriving myself. ;)
I've also recently started a nightly ritual of making golden milk (SO many health benefits and SO comforting to sip on at night!), and discovered a way to enhance my golden milk recipe for the Holiday season. So, with Christmas festivities right around the corner, I wanted to share my adapted egg nog recipe, full of good stuff to keep your body glowing, while also giving you all the comforting feelings of a little holiday indulgence!
GOLDEN MILK EGG NOG LATTE
Whisk all ingredients together over the stove until hot. For extra buttery goodness, melt 1 or 2 tsps of ghee (the traditional golden milk way!) in a skillet before stirring in egg nog and other ingredients.
*Add a dash of cinnamon for extra anti-inflammatory properties if desired!
Serve and enjoy!
