How was your holiday? Did you do any Black Friday shopping? I, unfortunately, did not. I actually really love Black Friday shopping but I’m really bad at it because I just like to wander around stores and then go to a bagel shop for breakfast. But I love waking up ridiculously early and driving around in the dark and all the crowds. Just me?
But I stayed home and ordered a dog bed for 50% off. It was pretty exciting.
Today I bring you a couple recipes featuring some Bolthouse Farms drinks. They have 3 new ones for the holidays: Pumpkin Spice Latte, Peppermint Mocha, and Holiday Nog.
These are limited time only so you better get them before they’re gone!
The first recipe I’m sharing is a Spiked Pumpkin Spice Latte!
You guys know I was stalking my favorite coffee shop for a week before they finally gave in and gave it to me so I was pretty excited to make this.
The Bolthouse Farms drink is a latte already so it’s perfectly delicious over ice in place of your regular morning cup of joe. And it tastes so decadent but it’s pretty low-cal for a latte! I wanted to kick things up for this post so I added a bit of Irish Cream as well as some extra coffee. Topped with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon. It’s delicious and every bit as good as the $5 latte from my coffee place.
- Pour coffee, Bolthouse Farms Pumpkin Spice Latte, and Irish Cream into a mug. Stir gently to combine.
- Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Serve hot!
The next recipe is Peppermint Mocha Frozen Yogurt!
This is another drink that already has coffee in it so it’s great as your morning coffee but it’s also really fun to experiment with.
Y’all know I’m a froyo addict but I hate going out to get it when it’s cold and snowy so making it at home in the comfort of my heater is perfect. I’d never made frozen yogurt before but it’s really simple and using the Peppermint Mocha drink really cuts down on the amount of ingredients you use and the prep time. I did sweeten it with some sugar but you used an already sweetened vanilla Greek yogurt, you could totally cut out the sugar.
It turned out so creamy and delicious. And bonus points because Peppermint Mocha always puts me in a festive mood!
Bolthouse Farms has a $1 off coupon that you can use on these drinks so be sure to print that off before you head to the store. And let me know which one you’re going for: Pumpkin Spice Latte, Peppermint Mocha, or Holiday Nog?
- In a small saucepan, heat the Bolthouse Farms Peppermint Mocha until it begins to bubble around the edges - do not let it boil.
- While that is heating, whisk together the sugar and the eggs in a mixing bowl. Once the Peppermint Mocha starts to bubble, slowly stream 1/2 cup into the egg mixture, whisking constantly. When that is thoroughly combined, pour the mixture into the saucepan with the rest of the Peppermint Mocha. Stir the mixture constantly until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
- Strain the mixture into a large mixing bowl and stir in the Greek yogurt. Refrigerate overnight.
- The next day, freeze the mixture in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to a freezer-safe container and freeze until firm.
- Garnish with crushed candy canes.
