You must all be so exhausted…especially if you just celebrated Thanksgiving and then spent all day reveling in Black Friday. I’m more of shop online kind of girl and yet I’m still tired but that’s because I literally woke up at midnight last night and instead of going back to sleep I decided to check out the online sales. Then I impulse bought a new Canon EOS 70d DSLR because can you ever have too many cameras? I probably won’t be able to sleep tonight because I can’t wait for it to arrive.
After a tough day in the office or in the shopping malls why not get a boost of energy from a tasty cold smoothie. Yummy. This one is good in more ways than one. Seriously, it tastes like no smoothie I’ve ever had and it is a “Green” smoothie providing a healthy dose of spinach.
Now it you are looking for a bit more of a treat you have options because this Peppermint Green Smoothie can be dressed up with a little bit of whipped topping or you could easily rim the glass with a bit of candy cane. Or do both because really, why choose?
I’m a big fan of chocolate almond milk. Heck, who am I kidding? I’m a fan of pretty much anything chocolate and this smoothie doesn’t disappoint. Just four ingredients + a little extra ice thrown in the blender and you’ll be sipping on this smoothie in no time. If you like green smoothies and like peppermint this is the one for you. It also feels just a little bit festive – just watch, I dare you not to start singing Christmas Carols. See what I did there? I bet you are singing already.
