Peppermint Chocolate Coffee Smoothie

A lazy holiday calls for one of my favourites – a chocolate coffee smoothie

Anyone else feeling lazy this holiday season? If it weren’t for a Peppermint Chocolate Coffee Smoothie I’m not sure I’d be up and moving yet.  Late nights, a kid that won’t go to sleep, and no real reason for getting up early have me dragging my butt this week. The really sad part is that even though I’m getting up close to 10 am every day, I still get about 1-1.5 hours to myself before my daughter (8 years old) and husband get up for the day. I cherish that small amount of time that I have to myself. During a normal workweek, I’m either commuting to/from work, at work, or with my daughter….there is never a moment of “me time”. 

This quick and easy Peppermint Chocolate Coffee Smoothie is the perfect simple breakfast for the holidays because it combines all my favourite things: Peppermint + Chocolate + Coffee.  Yummy. It also feels like a splurge. 

For some added nourishment to ensure I last until lunch I’ve added oats.  Oatmeal is always my #1 go-to when I need a meal to keep me going all morning long.  Adding it to my morning smoothie has the same effect.

If my husband would get up before noon I’d gladly share or make him his own. πŸ™‚
