Happy Father’s Day! If you are looking for some last minute ideas, I have a round-up of what I think Dad will love for Father’s Day.
Mint Chocolate Smoothies
Start the day off with Milk Chocolate Smoothies. As I have mentioned before, I think Dad’s like filling meals. If you serve this to Dad in the morning, he will have plenty of energy for the rest of his Father’s Day.
2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk (almond milk or any kind of milk you prefer)
6 oz. nonfat Greek yogurt
1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
¼ cup ice
Mint and Chopped Chocolate to Garnish (optional)
- Add the first four ingredients to the blender, in the order listed, and blend until creamy, and smooth
- Taste and add more peppermint extract if needed. Add more cocoa powder for a stronger chocolate taste.
- Put the ice in a tall glass and pour blended smoothie over the ice.
- Garnish with fresh mint and chocolate.
If you have a strong blender, add 3 small frozen very ripe bananas, previously peeled & sliced to create a thicker and more hearty smoothie
Smoked Chipotle Pot Roast
What Dad can resist pot roast? When its smoky and spicy like this one, he will love it. Get the Smoked Chipotle Pot Roast Recipe.
Irish Cream Pistachio Ice Cream
It’s going to be a hot Father’s Day this year and you will need something to cool you off after that Smoked Chipotle Pot Roast. Serve Dad some ice cream with extra kick to it – Irish Cream Pistachio Ice Cream.
