I am not one for making desserts every single night, but I do love to break out the treat recipes around the holidays.
The following six Christmas treats are on my must-make list this year!
You may notice that two of the six are pumpkin flavored. I can have pumpkin all year long, and I do not think it’s time to put it away just because Thanksgiving is over!
One thing these Christmas treats have in common is that they are full of creamy goodness.
I recommend using organic dairy for milk, butter and cream (and cheese–although not any of these recipes call for cheese!)! Horizon Dairy is one organic brand that carries milk, half & half, heavy whipping cream, and butter. More than 20 years ago, Horizon became the first company to supply organic milk nationwide.
But if you’re dairy-free, all of these recipes also have modifications for you! (Silk is my preferred brand for dairy-free ingredients.)
6 Must-Make Christmas Treats
This pumpkin cream smoothie can double as both a breakfast (or snack) or dessert! It is full of creamy goodness, but it is actually healthy for you too!
If you’re not a pie maker, these pumpkin pie crumble bars will give the same nostalgic taste without all the fuss. They are gluten-free as well!
My favorite fancy coffee shop drinks are a tie between pumpkin chai lattes and peppermint mochas. I am happy to say I’ve learned how to make both at home! This homemade peppermint mocha is surprisingly easy and a nice Christmas treat!
What I love best about this apple crumble is that you can make it in the crock pot!
Another dessert beverage, this simple cooked eggnog is sure to put your guests into the Christmas spirit!
If you’re not up for homemade eggnog this year but still want a healthier version, Horizon Dairy now sells an organic eggnog.
This easy date nut fudge is the perfect treat to take to a party!
