happy thirsty thursday!!!!!!!!!!

raspberry chocolate wine smoothie. YES. frozen fruit and wine. happy vday to me!

happy countdown to valentines day!  i’m so excited about so many recipes and drinks over the next month.  SO MANY.  this is just the beginning.  but you can totally make this one year round.  it just happens to be pink…making it perfect for kicking off the vday fun.

raspberry chocolate wine smoothie. YES. frozen fruit and wine. happy vday to me!this can be made with just the fruit and the wine, but i ended up adding almond milk and ice.  i liked it with just the two ingredients (and wow that was easy) but adding the milk and ice made it…um…AMAZING.  perfection.  we were taste testing…and it was actually a little tough to not just finish it right then and there.  but the husband of a blogger knows that no food or drink is consumed before pictures are perfected! (pat eats many luke warm dinners these days after waiting for me to finish taking pics! poor guy)

i had never had chocolate wine.  apparently there are types that are heavy on the wine with notes of chocolate…and then there are types that are heavy on the chocolate with hints of wine.  this one was heavy on the chocolate.  which…is that ever a bad thing? i think not.
