Low-fat Chocolate Peppermint Milkshake

Pin It PIN IT!

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! How are y’all doing? Sorry for being a day late with my series, it’s hard to schedule posts when the wifi is spotty! As most of you know, I’m in Paris on vacation/work with my mom and we’re having a BLAST! The food is beyond incredible, the sights are breathtaking and the wine is a plenty :) But, I couldn’t leave Santa hanging without some skinny sips so I whipped up a light and delicious milkshake for the big man to take the edge off the stress of being in charge of Christmas.

I can’t even imagine all the stress this man has on his shoulders. I’m stressed with my own job and I’m not even the face of a holiday. (But could you imagine? BACON AND WINE DAY! FREE BACON AND WINE FOR ALL!) Don’t act like that’s not an awesome idea. But, before I digress further into my bacon wine fantasy, let’s look at yet another photo of this luscious low-fat chocolate peppermint milkshake.

Don’t you want to drink this entire thing in one second? I didn’t, that’s for sure. I sure did not make this on my birthday and guzzle it so quick I had a brain freeze. DID NOT HAPPEN. This milkshake is SO good, you’d want to steal it from Santa so you could have it’s boozy deliciousness all to yourself.

But good luck trying to squeeze this out of the big man’s hands. He’s not going to let this go without a fight. He has naggy Mrs. Claus and a house-full of weird elves to deal with.

    What a wonderful treat! I love that this is low in calories and has good protein content - healthful and tasty at the same time! Bacon and wine would have me in a happy-go-lucky trance if I could consume it all day long!
