Dark Chocolate Peppermint Protein Shake

Hi Everyone,

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.

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Protein Shake
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.

I hope whatever you decide to do today that you have fun and get some relaxation in.  I do plan on napping and relaxing a bit today.  I’m feeling better, but would like to recover a little bit more.

Have a great weekend!


Dark Chocolate Peppermint Protein Shake


  1. This is my first-ever Black Friday in 10 years that I won’t be working and you don’t know how happy I am! I worked last night, but I got sent home early enough to drive to my sister’s house and still be with my family for about an hour and eat some turkey. I’m doing a LITTLE bit of shopping, but nothing crazy. I’m going to a hardware store (which is a place you would think wouldn’t be packed), but they open at 7 and supposedly there’s a huge line up for the deals. I only have two people left to shop for on Christmas and that’s my dad and my 5 year old nephew and for him I’m going to Target to get some good deals on board games. Have a happy Black Friday and feel better!!

  2. Sounds delicious! What brand of protein powder do you use. There are so many kinds I just end up not buying any. I don’t do anything like marathon running but would like a powder to add to smoothies when drinking them as a meal.
