Good Fun in the Snow!

In our house, WE LOVE SNOW!!! This winter has been a good one so far, and lots of the fun white stuff is falling as we speak. Over here it has been all about snow forts, snowmen, and tobogganing off of the “hill” my husband made from the steps off the back deck. It’s amazing how four steps can become hours of fun when snow is piled up on top and smoothed out just right. Here are a couple of images from our fun in the snow this winter so far:

After hours of fun in the snow, the kids always like to warm up with a mug of hot cocoa, and I enjoy making it very simply with only 3 ingredients over the stove. I use unsweetened original almond milk, and I whisk in equal parts cocoa and honey. You can make it as strong and as sweet as you like it, as a guideline I use about 1 teaspoon of each per 1 1/2 cups of milk. You get a yummy mug of hot cocoa without all of the additives and refined sugar found in an instant hot chocolate mix.

Put on your snowsuits, get out there and have some good fun in the snow!
