DIY Wassail Recipe, no refined sugar, dairy, gluten, grain, soy, chemicals or guilt AND your skin will love you for it too!
Wassail is so yummy! It feels and smells like Christmas and just makes me want to snuggle up in a big fleece blanket by the sparkles and crackles of a glowing fireplace.
But I was a little curious about the origin and did some reading. So for those of you that are a little snoopy like me, I’ll share what I learned. Wassail comes from an old English tradition that came about as a way to cheer in a good apple crop in the coming year.
If you want to know more, I found my info through Wikipedia, but in a nutshell that’s how it started. But sharing a warm cup of Wassail has spread to become a really tasty Christmas tradition worldwide. But the only problem with traditional wassail is that it’s not so healthy. It starts out that way, but you cook down the apples, depleting them of nutrients and then add lots of sugar and chemicals if it’s pre-packaged.
The best gift
is the gift of yourself.
Taking care of
yourself is a blessing
for those you love.
So what if you could have that warm steamy cup of wassail, but if it could be good for you too? Like anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging and absolutely delicious? LOL, who am I kidding, that’s why you came to this site in the first place, right?
Ok, enough said, let’s get to business and get you enjoying the most healthy, delicious wassail in town! A little note to think about – spices are highly concentrated. In fact, if you’ve ever made any of your own, you know how much you have to grow in order to make 1 teaspoon worth of dried any kind of powder. So with that in mind, we highly suggest switching over to organic spices only. Instead of linking each spice below, here is an affiliate link to OUR FAVORITE ORGANIC SPICE & HERB SHOPPE that we love to get our own spices from. Because we believe in their products, we are happy to recommend them to you.
