Feeling festive? How about trying a healthy Peppermint Chocolate Smoothie?
It took me awhile this year but I'm finally feeling all sorts of festive and merry. I basically want all things peppermint, chocolate and Elf movies this week.<---SANTA! I KNOW HIM!!!!
I'm also seriously looking forward to the Hubs and I annual viewing of Prep and Landing. It was a Disney Christmas special a few years back with lots of aviation references so we love it. Has anyone else seen it? Even if you don't have kids, I recommend it.
Since I can't eat cookies and chocolates all the time without feeling like garbage, I will be making some of my Healthy Holiday Treats including this mouthwatering Peppermint Chocolate Smoothie.
I just love it when healthy food totally fools ya like this one.
My Healthy Peppermint Chocolate Smoothie has a base of bananas... covered with chocolaatlyyyyy peppermintyyyyy goodness. I promise not to tell if you won't.
Make my Peppermint Chocolate Smoothie along side my Dark Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn and pull out your favorite Christmas movie for all kinds of holiday fun. Your taste buds just might explode with Christmas magic.
Santa's sleigh will have no trouble getting off the ground with all your spirit!
Believe it or not you could even start your day off with this good one! It only takes 5 ingredients and a short amount of time in your blender. If I was eating this to start my day, I'd probably leave off the whipped cream though... just sayin...
Enjoy this tempting festPeppermint Chocolate Smoothie and make sure to watch Prep and Landing or your favorite holiday movie this week. I'm looking for suggestions on new ones to watch... so leave me your favorites in the comments. Thanks!
