Valentine Smoothies

We love smoothies at our house! Here are some fun ways to dress them up for Valentine's Day:

Pipe some dark chocolate into heart shapes:

Add marshmallows, whipped cream & sprinkles for the kids:

Pipe chocolate hearts or designs on the inside of a glass:

Fill with smoothie and it leaves a pretty decoration on the glass:

Write love messages right on top!

My strawberry banana smoothie comes out this pink color. Lots of raspberries make a rich red one. Go heavy on the blueberries for a dark, rich purple smoothie. Yummy & guilt-free! :-)

Hi Silvy!
To "pipe" chocolate you can put a little melted chocolate into a small lunch bag, cut off the corner tip a tiny bit, then squeeze the chocolate out through the whole into heart shapes on waxed paper. Just like you were decorating a cake! In the cake supplies section of craft/grocery stores they have "decorator bags" with assorted tips if you want to get fancy! :-)

(I'm sure you knew all that, but my "piping" word just through you!)
