Do you drink smoothies in the winter? You will want to make this Christmas Smoothie. It’s sweet, creamy and the perfect winter breakfast.
We’ve officially got 20 days until Christmas, which is just so exciting. Like a lot of people, this is my favourite time of year. I love the decorations, the general feeling of joy in the air, the anticipation of family and friend time, and of course, the food. You have to love a holiday (and a holiday season) that is all about spending time with people that you love and baking delicious cookies. You just have to.
So far this holiday season, I’ve visited my grandma in her beautiful and charming town a few hours from where I live, had my BFFs over for dessert, attended a friend’s holiday party and celebrated my lovely dad’s birthday. I’ve eaten steak and fries and a frozen chocolate peanut butter pie (well, not the entire pie… but you get the idea). I’ve eaten paella and drank red wine and generally enjoyed myself. And since we’re not even at Christmas yet, I’m pretty sure that more fun and more good food is in my future. #holidaygoals
