CONQUER YOUR LOVE FOR ALCOHOL WITH INFUSED FOOD

Make enjoyable treats with alcohol-infused food; there are so many delicious foods that you can create with alcohol. For one, a ‘Coffee Liqueur Fruit Cup’ is a lovely treat. Mix Siggi’s Icelandic yogurt and a coffee based liqueur. The yogurt is strained an extra time to increase the protein content. For something unique, try making a ‘Spicy Beer Mustard.’ It will add extra flavor to your grilled chicken or steak. Mustard seed is low in calories, and has the potential to increase metabolism. Use brown and yellow mustard seeds, honey, vinegar, cayenne, turmeric, allspice, and dark beer. The mix can be made any way you like; you can add more of one ingredient if you really like the flavor of it. Make a fun and healthier treat with alcohol by creating ‘Amaretto Cherries.’ Soak cherries in amaretto to get a tasty garnish that you don’t have to feel guilty about. One cup of cherries only has 100 calories in it, and is loaded with cancer-fighting flavonoids and fiber. Enjoy away.

Make ‘Infused Ice Pops’ by combining Smirnoff Ice or Bud Light Straw-Ber-Itas with a water or fresh squeezed fruit juice to lower the fake sugar content and keep the same great flavors. Place mixture into a popsicle mold, and stick a popsicle stick through the center; use a wood clip to keep it centered if you wish. Freeze for 8-12 hours, and then enjoy your special treat. Enjoy a ‘Spiked Fro-Yo Cupcake;’ make a crust by pulsing pecans, coconut oil, and maple syrup, and pressing it firmly into a greased cupcake pan. Combine Greek yogurt, vanilla vodka, coconut sugar, and then pour over the crust. Freeze for 5-12 hours, and then have this lovely treat. Making alcohol-infused food at home can be a fun adventure in itself; the best part is getting to enjoy the tasty food you just made.
