This holiday dessert recipe was inspired by thefeedfeed and Vitamix! They sent me the brand new Vitamix Ascent 3500 to make a holiday recipe using a fabulous winter spice mix you can whip up in this machine. It’s super fancy with 5 program settings for smoothies, soups, dips & spreads, frozen desserts, and self-cleaning that automatically adjust to the container size you’ve selected. While it does come with that extra wide 64-ounce container, I still prefer the original slimmer 64-ounce classic canister from my model that I first bought in 2009!
However, Vitamix was also kind enough to send me a brand new 48-ounce container which is perfect for those small batch dressings and nacho cheese cravings! I do use both the large and small containers all the time, but if you watch my YouTube videos then you know I prefer the narrow version as it tends to blend smaller amounts more effectively.
This sweet and savory winter spice mix is the perfect accent to any holiday recipe. Try it in a warming hot chocolate, a mousse, or how about making your morning smoothie or smoothie bowl a little festive too!
I’ve halved the gingerbread cookie recipe from my gingerbread sandwich cookies and used them crumbled up as one of the layers for these trifles and now all we have to do is mix up a quick winter spice custard to ooze between the layers and add some coconut whip cream! Are you drooling yet?
Thanks to thefeedfeed and Vitamix for inspiring and sponsoring this blog post!
