5 cups whole milk or oat milk

1/4 cup confectioners' sugar, plus more for sprinkling

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, plus more for sprinkling

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

4 bananas, sliced and frozen

Whipped cream, for topping


Special equipment:
a hot-glue gun and glue sticks; 12 black buttons; 4 plain-sided pint-size (16-ounce) mason jars; red or green felt; a ruler; scissors; 4 paper or metal straws
  1. Heat a hot-glue gun.
  2. Glue 3 buttons down the front of 4 pint-size (16-ounce) mason jars. Cut 4 strips of red or green felt, each 1 1/4 inches by 18 inches. Snip fringe into the ends of the felt with scissors. Wrap a felt scarf around the neck of each jar. 
  3. Put the milk, sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, allspice and banana in a blender and blend on high speed until the banana liquifies and the drink is thick and creamy. Pour into the decorated jars and mound whipped cream on top of each drink so it's taller than the rim. Grate more nutmeg on top. Insert a straw and sprinkle confectioners' sugar snow over everything.
