Favorite Holiday Smoothies

Holiday season is upon us and with it comes family gatherings, work parties and traditional treats. Though wonderful and delicious, all of this indulgence can quickly knock us off of our healthy eating routines. One thing I love to do during the holidays is to have a protein smoothie for either breakfast or lunch. Adding a good smoothie to the mix can help make sure you are getting adequate nutrition and help balance out those extra calories.

Here are 5 delicious smoothie options to add to your holiday meal planning! Just add all ingredients to a blender and blend til smooth.


Peppermint Mocha Protein Drink

This Hot Peppermint Mocha protein drink provides all of the nutritional benefits of a protein smoothie but tastes like a decadent hot peppermint mocha. The perfect breakfast for cold winter mornings or snack for an afternoon reading by the fire. Top with a little whipped cream & enjoy!


Protein Drink

  • 10 oz almond milk
  • 1 scoop Arbonne Coffee Protein
  • 1 scoop Arbonne Peppermint Mocha Protein
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Dairy Free Whipped Cream

  • 1 can 13-14 oz of full fat coconut milk (found in the baking goods area of grocery store)
  • 2-3 Tbsp confectioners sugar
  • cinnamon, vanilla or any flavor you would like Optional


Protein Drink

  • Heat almond milk to your preference.
  • Add vanilla and protein powder. Blend with frother for creay results.

Dairy Free Whipped Cream

  • Place can of full fat coconut milk in the the fridge upside down, let it chill overnight.
  • Open the can. Carefully spoon out the top layer of opaque white stuff that has gathered at the top of the can. Spoon into a mixing bowl.
  • Add 2-3 Tbsp of powdered confectioners sugar to the coconut cream. Optional: add cinnamon, vanilla bean – any small amount of flavor you’d like.
  • Grab a hand beater and medium bowl. Whip the coconut milk. Start on low and move to a higher speed, move the beater in an up and down motion to infuse as much air as possible.
  • Top warmed drink with whipped cream and any other toppings. Serve and enjoy!


  1. If for any reason your whip seems too stiff or dry, you can add a few teaspoons of the leftover coconut liquid or non-dairy milk. If your whip seems too soft or watery, you can add another tablespoon of sugar OR stick your mixture back in the fridge – it may need to firm up again.
  2. Coconut cream is best eaten right after it is whipped as it will lose some fluffiness if you stick it in the fridge to chill. But it actually holds up better than I expected!
