holiday hot cocoa,

Holiday Season

For some reason I thought I really liked hot chocolate. I went out to the store and purchased a box of hot cocoa and some mini marshmallows (which I was hesitant about, after learning they contain fish gelatin). Once I got home and mixed all my ingredients, my mouth was ready for the amazing seasonal treat. But after a few sips, I realized I’d rather stick with my tea.

Every time the holidays roll around I get tricked into believing that I really liked something and I should rush out and get it, because I haven’t had it all year. Not realizing, I haven’t had it all year because it’s not something I actually like. A few years ago it was egg nog, that I just couldn’t wait to get a sip of *gag*.

Which hot drink do you prefer for the cooler seasons, hot cocoa or tea?


*Update* It may have been the brand that threw me off of Hot Cocoa. I recently tried a mocha flavored coffee and fell in love.

I’ve really been trying hard to take charge of my health this past week. I’ve pretty much cut out my junk food/fried food consumption and adding in as much produce as I can. I try to keep my breakfast as easy peasy as I can and either have eggs and toast or a fruit berry smoothie. I’ve always been a fan of a peach, mango and orange smoothie, but this new recipe has really been amazing. Hubby picked up this Genesis Today super fruit juice a few weeks ago and this is our third bottle. I wasn’t much of a fan of the taste until I mixed it into this amazing smoothie.  View Post
