The holidays are almost here, and if you’re looking for a good alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners for your holiday baking or winter drinks, Pure Via is a great option. It tastes great, is all-natural, non-GMO, and made from the Stevia plant.



Before we know it, we will be snuggled up next to the fireplace with a nice cup of hot cocoa. When I was pregnant with my son, I had this craving for hot chocolate all winter long. Sipping hot cocoa after ice skating is also a fond memory of mine. There are many ways to enjoy hot cocoa, but this Cinnamon Hot Chocolate Recipe will definitely be your go-to winter warm up!
