I really love a simple smoothie, which is why I don’t end up sharing many here on the blog. I don’t want to bore you, and there are so many fabulous smoothie recipes on the Internet that I figure most everything is covered. But this morning, I got around to playing in the kitchen after picking a bowl full of fresh wild thimble berries from the backyard.

I happened to have some fresh oranges and a little coconut milk leftover from my morning cooler, and along with a few bananas, the berries, and other ingredients, I ended up with a concoction that my husband immediately termed a “peppermint candy smoothie” after taking a sip. I had yet to try it, so I was skeptical. But sure enough, it tastes like peppermint candy!

This peppermint candy smoothie is definitely worth sharing, so you’ll find the recipe below. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m willing to bet that this concoction would make an excellent dessert by freezing it for a couple of hours.

On a side note, the house building is coming along quite well and I’m expecting to be able to start really focusing on my food photography and putting together more YouTube videos – so stay tuned!

Oh, and let me know what you think of the peppermint candy smoothie… I’m curious if you like it as much as we do here!

Peppermint Candy Smoothie


  • 3 bananas
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 12 ounces liquid coconut milk or your favorite nut milk
  • 8 ounces fresh orange juice

That’s it! Simply put everything in your blender and mix on high until well combined and creamy.

Having read this I believed it was really informative. I appreciate you spending some
time and effort to put this informative article
together. I once again find myself spending a lot of time both reading and leaving comments.
But so what, it was still worth it!
