The days are freezing cold, sunshine is scarce and the time at home should be made as pleasant as possible. To help you – and your children – get into the Christmas spirit at home, we have prepared two recipes and two colouring templates for you.
Mulled wine, cookies and a little mandala colouring: That's our suggestion for a cosy day at home. Of course, we also provide you with the matching recipes and colouring templates.
Alcohol-free mulled wine – warms the heart and stomach
The Christmas market classic par excellence: mulled wine. But this drink can also be very tasty at home. Here we show you a recipe without alcohol.
- 1 litre red grape juice (without added sugar)
- 500 ml cranberry juice (without added sugar)
- 1 organic orange
- 1 lemon
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 star anise
- 1 pinch clove powder
- 1 pinch cardamom powder
Mix the ingredients in a large pot and heat until boiling. Then reduce the heat and simmer gently. After about 30 minutes, pour everything through a sieve and enjoy the mulled wine hot.
Vegan TreeCookies – the delicious alternative TreeCookies
Christmas is baking and cooking time. If you'd like a vegan alternative to the many different Christmas biscuits, here's a recipe for you.
Ingredients for 15-20 pieces:
- 200 g ground almonds + 1 tablespoon for rolling out the dough
- 120g fine icing sugar
- 1 spoon of cinnamon
- 1 pinch of salt
- 3 large tablespoons almond butter
- ½ lemon, juice only
- 1 tablespoon water (or more if the dough is too dry)
- 50g vegan chocolate
We wish you bon appétit! And by the way, if you are looking for more NIKIN recipes, you can find them here.
Colouring templates – for the little ones or for you
Can you remember those afternoons at school when you sat peacefully at your desk, children's songs playing in the background and you coloured in your mandala? You could bring just such a relaxed atmosphere into your home. We provide you with the right colouring templates.
If you feel like it, you are welcome to send us a photo of your or your children's masterpiece. We are always happy to receive creative mail. By the way: If you've caught the painting bug, here are a few more templates.
