Make Holidays Delicious With Silk

silk-blogger-160Disclosure: I am one of several Silk Blog Ambassadors. The opinions in this blog are entirely my own.

The holidays will be here before you know it, and that means that we will be indulging in our favorite holiday dishes, attending parties, and celebrating the season with family and friends.

I think that incorporating some Silk products into your favorite holiday recipes is a great way to get some extra plant based nutrients.  I went to check out the Silk website and they have some great links to ways that you can use almond, soy, and coconut milk into your holiday meal planning.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

You could wow everyone at Thanksgiving with this tasty (and healthy) side dish. I like to add a little bit of cinnamon, orange juice and orange zest for an extra punch of flavor.

Toasted Coconut Pumpkin Muffins

These are a delicious way for you to get that delicious pumpkin flavor that is synonymous with fall, even when you are short on time (and aren’t we all this time of year?). You can just bake these ahead of time and have a delicious well-balanced breakfast on the go.

Hot Cocoa

Nothing is more appealing to me when it’s cold outside than a delicious cup of hot cocoa. You can simply heat up 1 cup of Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened Vanilla milk with 1 tablespoon of cocoa, and 1 tsp. of agave syrup in a saucepan, just until it gets to the desired temperature. You can spice it up with a dash of peppermint extract for an extra treat. Or check out this recipe for Mexican Hot Chocolate (my personal favorite).

Soups are comforting and delicious on these cold fall and winter days, and can be simplified by using the slow cooker. I love the spices and richness of this soup, and it has the added bonus of being a great substitute for traditional chicken noodle soup, when you are feeling under the weather.

What are your favorite ways of using soy, almond, and coconut milk? No matter what the holidays bring for you, I hope you enjoy them celebrating with people and tasting the delicious foods.
