Holiday Nog

Make your holidays bright with this light, frothy holiday nog. Made with nondairy milk, sweetened with dates and maple syrup plus a hint of vanilla and spices, it offers lots of festive cheer with no saturated fat, cholesterol, or added sugar. A bit of cardamom makes it reminiscent of a spiced chai latte. Serve this nog chilled or warm. You can make up a batch several days in advance, but give it a whirl in the blender just before serving for extra frothiness.

Traditional Cranberry Sauce

Embellish any holiday dish with a ruby-red dollop of this classic tart and tangy sauce. Feel free to dress it up with a little orange zest, a squeeze of orange juice, a cinnamon stick, or a pinch of allspice. It’s also surprisingly good stirred into nonfat yogurt for a fruity breakfast treat. Cranberry sauce can be made up to 1 week before serving.

Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes

These dense, fudgy cupcakes are a chocolate lover’s dream, with no added sugar and no added fat. Fresh raspberries add sophistication, making them a perfect special-occasion dessert. Whole wheat pastry flour is milled more finely and made from lower-protein wheat, so it’s more delicate and better for baking muffins, cakes, cookies, and quick breads while still offering all the benefits of a whole grain. These are best served the day they’re made.
