Lump of Coal Cookies & Peppermint Smoothies


The Peppermint Smoothie is a delicious alternative to ice-cream based peppermint shakes, which are much higher in calories and fat. Add a scoop of protein powder or vanilla Greek yogurt to this treat, and it can stand alone as a breakfast or snack. And, these rich cookies are filled with antioxidants from beets, cocoa, and pumpkin. They also contain more vitamin A, protein, and fiber than traditional sugar cookies.
