I have been working hard to cut back sugar for our family this year. Each month another sweet treat is eliminated from the menu in our home and will no longer be restocked, but one thing I don’t think I will ever make completely off limits is donuts.
Did you know that National Donut Day is TOMORROW!? I didn’t, but it turns out it’s a thing.
Be sure to stop by your local Krispy Kreme or Dunkin’ Donuts to get a free donut Friday June 5th!
I know that Dunkin’ Donuts will require a drink purchase, but they have excellent coffee. I will be ordering my favorite, which is the cool and sweet Iced Caramel Latte with Whipped cream.
There is a party in my tummy. So yummy. So yummy…
Speaking of parties, a lot of the party ideas that we implemented SJ’s 4th birthday would be perfect for donut day or a variety of occasions.
Check out the party post HERE to see how my DIY donut invitations, donut hole fruit kabobs, and donut piñata turned out.
You can also head over to my donut party pinterest board for even Donut fun like:
Donuts for elves (they are actually cheerios). So cute!
Or stamping colorful thumbprints for donut sprinkles.
“If You Give a Dog a Donut” might be fun reading material for your kids this weekend.
There are so many possibilities! I realize we have a health epidimec in our society so maybe I shouldn’t be promoting a day that celebrates what is possibly the least nutritious snack of all time disguised as a breakfast food. But there are actually a lot of alternative recipes out there for vegan, gluten free, paleo, and keto donuts. Because regardless of your dietary needs I think every one deserves something sweet from time to time, “donut you think? “
My favorite is a fritter, or plain. I just can’t miss national donut day ?
I’ll be getting a Boston Kreme! It’s been a long time favorite of mine.
I know this is going to sound like a sacrilege, but I don’t like donuts! But, adore all your donut art and ideas!!! xo Happy Birthday SJ!
No. It’s okay Susan, I knew there would be someone who didn’t like donuts. I forgive you 😉
We didn’t make it to DD for National Donut Day. There isn’t one super close, but I had considered going at one point. Sadly, we haven’t had KK in Houston for nearly 10 years, but I’ve heard their coming back! I can’t wait!! And to answer your question, I’m actually a big fan of donut holes! 🙂
