This peppermint mocha smoothie screams Holiday yumminess. Made with simple pure ingredients for a great treat anytime of the day.
Coffee, chocolate, peppermint in a smoothie! Need I say more! This peppermint mocha smoothie is one of my favorites this time of year.
I skinnied it up a little bit by using a banana and honey to sweeten it instead of loads of sugar or syrup.
Using a base of DairyPure milk and coffee, simply add the other ingredients and you’re morning or afternoon treat is ready to indulge in in just a few minutes.
