Healthy Holiday Decadence

They’re back!


Two of my favorite holiday beverages have returned for the holidays: Vitasoy’s nondairy Holly Nog and Peppermint Chocolate.

Both beverages are USDA-certified organic, low in fat, and contain no lactose, gluten or cholesterol.

Holly Nog offers just a fraction of the fat, but all of the rich taste, of traditional dairy eggnog. It’s spiced with a special blend of nutmeg and cinnamon.

For chocolate fans, Peppermint Chocolate is delish when served warm, like old-fashioned hot chocolate, or chilled. Its sweet premium chocolate and subtle mint flavor suit the season well.

Each serving of Peppermint Chocolate is 140 calories, while a Holly Nog serving is just 60 calories (about 180 fewer calories than traditional eggnog). As for protein, Peppermint Chocolate and Holly Nog contain 4 and 2 g protein, respectively.

Vitasoy’s winter seasonal line is popular with health-conscious partygoers, organic consumers and those with dietary restrictions or food allergies.

“They’re perfect solutions for holiday entertaining,” says company CEO Walter Riglian.

Each beverage carries a suggested retail price of $2.49 to $2.99. You can find the beverages at leading supermarkets, specialty shops, and natural and organic food stores throughout the country.
