Christmas is a time to be joyful, spend time with family and … eat. From work parties and school functions to social gatherings and dinners with friends, it’s easy to get carried away with snacks, drinks, sweets, and other treats this time of year.

Balance your favorite indulgent Christmas foods with better-for-you swaps that taste just as great, if not better! For example, use your Vitamix to make a homemade low-sugar cranberry sauce or low-fat pumpkin pie to satisfy a craving for sweets. A bonus for making items yourself? You can control the ingredients. Whether you’re making appetizers, preparing sides, or whipping up desserts for someone else’s party or your own we have party pleasers to inspire.
