I’m back with another fun Nespresso recipe – My vegan version of bulletproof coffee using homemade hemp milk and coconut oil! It’s a serious addiction you guys. It’s really so, so good and very filling. Did you know that bulletproof coffee was supposed to replace breakfast? That’s what I’ve heard, and let me tell you, this stuff satisfies. It’s become a necessary part of my daily morning routine. And it’s super easy to make thanks to my Nespresso VertuoPlus and Aeroccino. I mean it. Super. Easy.

3 Ways to get healthy for the New Year

I’m already thinking about how to start living healthier for the 2017. The holidays are always full of temptations aren’t they? Starting with a major sugar rush from Halloween, followed by Thanksgiving feasts (yes, plural) and then ending up with a plethora of Christmas cookies. I’ve been trying to stay on top of things, but clothing is definitely a little tight right now! I haven’t been exercising or eating as healthy has a should be. I’m sure you all have the same problem, am I right? So I decided there had to be some convenient and time-saving options available for the hardworking family like us. After doing some major research and trial and error, I found three GREAT companies that I highly recommend. I’ve tried and vetted all three and am a huge fan. They make it easy to start being healthier right now, no excuses.

Vegan Eggnog Latte and a Giveaway with Nespresso

It’s that time of year folks! The holiday beverages are out in full effect. I’m usually a diehard for pumpkin spiced lattes, but no more!  I’ve been trying to mix it up and try something new. One of my favorites this year is the Starbucks Eggnog Latte. Holla.

Now I’ve never been a big fan of eggnog, well, because of the egg part 😉 So I’ve always been a taster and not a enjoyer of eggnog. I love the amazing spices used, but didn’t want to have to deal with the drinking of eggs part. Sooo I decided that I’d make my own vegan eggnog and enjoy myself some tasty eggnog lattes. Yay.

First step, make the vegan eggnog….

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup raw unsalted cashews, soaked and drained 
  • 2 cups water 
  • 1 14-ounce full-fat canned coconut milk 
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg 
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of cloves
  • pinch of kosher salt

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Soak cashews in water overnight. 
  2. Drain them and throw then into a blender with 2 cups of water. 
  3. Blend until super smooth.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend.

Once you have your eggnog, it’s time to make the espresso! I partnered with Nespresso on this post because my love for Nespresso is endless. I used the latest Nespresso Evoluo. Life pre-Nespresso was hard. so hard. Thankfully I have the Evoluo now, to keep me company. Its super tasty espresso is ready in less than a minute AND my handy Aeroccino whips up my eggnog at the same time. I can’t tell you how handy this is when I’m rushing out the door to get the kids to school. No time for breakie, but there’s always time for a latte!

And since it’s the holidays, Nespresso currently has one of it’s fun limited edition flavors available, Swiss Chocolate. ZOMG this stuff is good guys. It’s even better with my vegan eggnog though! 😉 It’s like all happy flavors combined into one mug. Pretty freaking fabulous.
