Recipe - Candy Cane Chocolate Milk

My daughter and I opted to stay home rather than go out. This being our first weekend together (by ourselves) since I left her with grandma after Xmas, we decided to have some quality time. We just made this awesome drink and I wanted to share it with you guys, especially my fellow mommies.

Wondering what to do with the 30 plus candy canes left over from your Christmas tree? Well I was. I definitely wasn't about to have Sweet Pea munch on them for the next couple of weeks. So my mommy brain got to working and I browsed my fridge and pantry for some recipe ideas.

Bingo!

Candy Cane Chocolate Milk!!!


Ingredients:

- 3 regular candy canes (I am sure you can do this with any of the other funky flavors)
- 4 cups of Almond Milk (We don't do milk but you can use it if ya want)
- About 3 tbsp of Sugar-Free Chocolate Syrup (you can use whatever type of chocolate you want)
- Ice


Instructions:

Add all the candy canes and 1 cup of milk to your food processor. Process on high until you can hardly see any pieces of candy cane. Pour candy cane milk mixture into blender along with remaining ingredients. If you want you can scrap out the little bits of candy cane into the blender or just leave it till the end. Blend for about a minute or less. Pour into glasses and enjoy!!!

My daughter LOVED this!!! Talk about a hit. And she loved the lil pieces of candy cane at the bottom of her cup.

You can of course make this without the chocolate. I just loved the combination.

We are off to make chocolate chips cookies and do some arts and craft.

@ Sistah Ant

Yes. I enjoyed it immensely! LOL!

@ Kick Debt

Oo I need to make those this weekend. Thinking about adding something special to them.

@ Ms Money

Almond milk is wonderful! Go with a good brand on the processor. Cuisinart, Kitchen Aid, Black and Decker (they make good appliances) are good ones.
