As we know, this holiday season is going to be looking a little different this time of year due to the pandemic but I refuse to let that destroy my holiday spirit! I came up with a HOLIDAY BUCKET LIST for myself, my boyfriend and my best friend to do this season to still enjoy the holidays safely and socially distanced! One of the things on the list is obviously the make a cup of hot chocolate! Nothing screams winter quite like a cup of hot chocolate topped with some mini marshmallows!
I had planned on making my hot chocolate recipe one day and right when I was about to get it started, I looked in the fridge and saw my worst nightmare… I had no almond milk! I had a slight panic attack and contemplated driving the 20+ minutes to get to the store to grab almond milk! As I was pacing my kitchen back and forth, deciding what I was going to do, I walked into the pantry, and all of a sudden I saw my life savor! There it was, my NutraMilk staring right into my soul and my problem was solved!
What is a NutraMilk you ask? Well, let me tell you! It is an amazing invention that allows you to make your very own nut milk, nut butter, dips, milkshakes, and so many more things in the comfort of your own home! It is so convenient and I love how you can use whatever kind of nuts you want and really make it your own! So just like that, in about 7 minutes I had my very own homemade nut milk and all I needed was water and almonds, and didn’t have to leave my house or get out of my pajamas!
