Happy Black Friday to you! Big shopping plans? For me, I’m staying in, well… I do have a craving to go to White House Black Market so I may pop in their today to buy a few winter sweaters since next week I’ll be heading to Philadelphia. For those who get up at the crack of dawn to do some shopping, today I created for you a Black Friday Dark Chocolate Peppermint Protein Shake that will fill you up, give you energy and help you get all the best Christmas deals.
This protein shake screams the holidays with rich dark chocolate and peppermint. For a boost of protein I added vanilla protein powder and to thicken it up I added a frozen banana. It’s so thick, creamy and excellent to have during your holiday season.
