Infused Water

The combinations are endless with what you can use in infused water. When you’re making them for on-the-go, these Voss Water bottles are great! With a wider mouth opening than most water bottles, they make it easier to fill with your fruit.

Pumpkin Spice Protein Shake

A holiday twist to your classic protein shake.

Being that it is October everything is pumpkin spice flavored! This flavor can be made from basic spices in your kitchen, it’s almost too easy! This by far was the tastiest protein shake I’ve made!

Ingredients:

1 Cup ice cubes

1 Cup sugar-free coconut milk

1 Scoop whey protein powder ( I used Vanilla)

1 Teaspoon cinnamon

1 Teaspoon pumpkin pie spice ( or all-spice)

1/4 Teaspoon nutmeg

1 Teaspoon chia seeds

Mix completely in a blender & pour in a glass!


Mulled Wine

Warm Holiday Wine.

I came across a recipe for mulled wine on the Food Network website, I wanted to try it out so I made a few changes to accommodate what I had in my kitchen. I had never tried mulled wine before, and was hesitant that I might not like it. However, I was extremely happy with the end result. If you have never had mulled wine before the best way I could to describe it would be that it’s a warm “harvesty” winter version of sangria. This recipe is very easy and it’s great for the holiday season.

Ingredients:

1 Bottle red wine

2 1/2 Cups of apple cider

2 Cinnamon sticks

1 Orange (squeezed & zested)

2 Tablespoons agave syrup

1 Teaspoon cinnamon

1 Teaspoon allspice

1 Orange peel for garnish

Directions:

Combine wine, apple cider, cinnamon , orange juice and zest, agave, and allspice into large saucepan. Bring to boil, then allow to simmer for 10 minutes. Pour into glasses and garnish with orange peels.

2 Ingredient Cocktail

Kiwi Cocktail

This cocktail is so tasty and only contains two ingredients: Kiwis, and vodka! The great thing about Kiwi is it is extremely good for you. One kiwi contains about as much potassium as a banana, more Vitamin C than an orange, and is very high in fiber. With these nutrients, you can drink your cocktail and feel good about it too.

Makes 1 Cocktail

Ingredients:

2 Kiwis (skinned & pureed)

2 Oz of Vodka

Directions:

Puree Kiwi and vodka in a food processor or blender. If you’d like, leave one slice of kiwi for garnish. You can blend with Ice or add afterwards. Poor in Glass & Serve. Simple as that!
