And did I mention this is a sweet treat :)?

I must admit I'm not a real fan of chocolate, however, the wife and kid will drink this stuff up like its water.  I don't know why but they love the taste you get from combining together the peppermint ice cream and chocolate syrup. 

I find myself preparing this smoothie recipe from time to time for the wife and kid.  They usually fight over the last serving and are always very appreciative after enjoying this chocolate treat.
