Alright my pregnant mamas who loved to have a cocktail before they got pregnant, or for those who don’t drink and want a little something to sip on!  This is for you!  And for those who want a little alcohol in it, feel free to add some titos vodka in my friends.  Check out my COSMIC CRANBERRY HOLIDAY COCKTAIL from last year too.  That can be a mocktail, just remove the alcohol. 

Honestly, I’m not a big drinker, but I love to have a drink socially.  Like going out on a date with TJ, or out with friends, or even just sitting my our fire together after Oaks goes to bed.  It’s nice to have a glass and unwind.  So I created this little mocktail, super easy btw and its been nice to sip on while I’m pregnant.  

WHAT YOU NEED

  • Club soda 
  • 1/2 squeeze lemon
  • 1/2 packet TRUE LEMON (any flavor is good, but I love raspberry lemonade)
  • Ice 
  • Wine glass

DIRECTIONS

  • Add ice to the wine glass.  Then pour in the club soda filling it as much as you want to drink.  Then mix in 1/2 packet of true lemon.  Squeeze in some lemon to your preference and then stir and enjoy!

I’ve been giving Oaks true lemon as his juice for over a year now.  I’m not a fan of giving him juice with all the sugar in it.  So this has been a really nice replacement and he loves it, plus it doesn’t have any aspartame in it like the crystal light packets do.   So he actually will ask for “juice in there”  in his sippy and thats what he’s talking about.. haha its really funny the way he says it.  “momma more juice in narr”  I’ll do honest apple juice while we’re out at a restaurant, but thats a rare occasion.  I don’t keep any of it in my house.  Thats not to say I don’t give him treats, but I just don’t keep them in the house.  I notice a big difference when he’s eating to much sugar.  Anyways, thats a different blog topic ha.

Let me know if you guys like this, and share your mocktail recipes below!

MY SUGAR FREE HOT COCOA

Something weird has been happening to my body lately and it’s called not being able to have an ounce of white sugar without feeling so sick!  Anyone else have this issue pregnant?  I wasn’t like this with Oaks at all.  It’s like this baby girl is really making me work super hard for her to get here!  But really, I’ve had to figure out how to get sweet things without the processed sugar, I mean, thats a great problem to have right?!  So it’s forced me to get super creative which is also very good.  Things are just happening for a purpose over here 🙂  

So this recipe is sugar free, as in no white processed sugar, dairy free and all around vegan!

I can have all the real sugars, thank god!  But still very balanced.  So things like honey, coconut sugar, fruit, agave etc.  So I created this dairy free hot cocoa!  It’s so delicious!  I don’t even miss the processed sugar. 

YOU NEED…

DIRECTIONS

  • Add everything to a pot besides the whip and bring to medium heat.  Stir, stir stir!  Keep stirring around until mixed up and chocolate is melted.  Once its melted, hot and mixed up, then remove and pour into a cup.  Top with Coco Whip if you would like!  Makes it that much better!
