winter  Christmas is not only the prettiest, but also the coldest season of them all! Who doesn’t like being cuddled up next to someone, drinking hot cocoa, watching Christmas movies, baking cookies or decorating a Christmas tree? I know I do! How can you not like the winter? Winter is the perfect time to get bundled up with loved ones to spend every second of your days outside building snowmen, having snow ball fights, making snow angels and forts. Get out and enjoy the cold breeze of winter with the people you love!


Hot cocoa is definitely one of the best parts of Christmas. This is the season you hear of everyone wanting to run to Starbucks to get a cup of their fancy hot cocoa or get the ingredients to make it on their own. If it was me, I would have to say the best kind of hot cocoa to drink is peppermint swirl. Every warm slurp gives you the rich flavor of chocolate mixed with the deep notes of peppermint. For a fact, this will be one of the best mugs of chocolate you’ll ever drink! (ingredients below)

2 tbsp. cocoa powder

1/2 tsp. corn starch

1/2 tsp. stevia or 2 tbsp. sugar

1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 tsp. pure peppermint extract

1 pinch salt

1 cup (unsweetened) coconut milk (or milk of your choice)


  • Mix everything in a pan
  • Set over low flame
  • Whisk until thicken and bubbly
  • Pour and serve with whip cream
