Island Dream Cocktail

Island Dream Cocktail
My inspiration for this new cocktail creation came from this recipe *here*. I first saw the recipe on Pinterest. I was looking for a good way to use up a banana and some coconut milk. This seemed to be a great way to do that! I didn't have all the ingredients for that recipe, so I improvised! I was very happy with the results!
 This is a creamy and light drink that reminds me of the kind of cocktail you would have while on vacation in the tropics!

Rum Truffle Mocha Hot Drink (Skinny Style)

This really is the perfect hot drink for these VERY cold days we're having in New York! I made this last night and it was just what I needed...a warm, chocolaty, boozy, beverage to take the chill off!
This recipe is from a talented blogger named Anna
from the 'Crunchy Creamy Sweet' website.
 In her recipe, she explains how to easily make frothy milk with just a glass jar and a microwave...and some milk, of course!

Rum Truffle Mocha Hot Drink (Skinny Style)
Rum Truffle Mocha Hot Drink

4 Tbls. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbls. rum
1 1/2 cups hot freshly brewed coffee
4 packets artificial sweetener or regular sugar
1/2 cup skim milk or low fat milk
Finely chopped chocolate - for garnish, optional
In a glass measuring cup melt 4 tbls. chocolate chips in the microwave according to package directions. Then add in a splash of the hot brewed coffee and whisk until smooth. Whisk in more hot coffee if needed. Add the sweetener and whisk again. Pour into 2 mugs and add 1 tbls. of rum to each mug. Then add the remaining hot coffee.
Now make the hot frothy milk by pouring about 1/2 cup milk into a glass jar with a lid. Shake the jar vigorously to create foam. Remove lid and microwave on high for 20 seconds. Do this a few times until you see the foam float to the top. Spoon a little of this hot frothy milk on top of each hot mocha. Garnish the top of each with some finely chopped chocolate. Sip and Enjoy!
Make 2 Servings

Banana Rum Fritters

Banana Rum Fritters
I love fritters of all kinds! Sweet or savory!  I've tried onion fritters, corn fritters, and apple fritters, along with these banana rum fritters! Fruit fritters are even better when you pair them with ice cream! But adding rum just steps it up a notch! And don't worry, you can feed these to children because the alcohol burns off during the frying process.
