Christmas is coming and one of the best Christmas aromas is the cool refreshing scent of peppermint. Add a little Christmas flavor to your smoothie this year and try adding peppermint to a smoothie. While this peppermint smoothie isn’t exactly healthy, it is wonderful for a treat now and then. If you have peppermint lovers in your family (peppermint bark, anyone?) then this cool smoothie will be sure to please.
- 2 cups of low-fat frozen vanilla yogurt (you can use it unfrozen but it will be too runny)
- 2 cups of 1% milk
- 2 tbs crushed pepermint candy (or peppermint bark for some chocolate flavor)
- 1 1/2 cups of ice
- optional peppermint sprig for garnish
Add to a blender and create your Christmastime Peppermint Smoothie! You may need to blend a little longer to get the peppermint candy pulverized.
