Chocolate Wine Smoothie
I have had a chocolate wine smoothie in the back of my head for a while now. I knew I would be taking part in the 3rd annual choctoberfest, so I decided to hold off to debut this chocolate wine recipe. I am glad I did.
A few years ago I went on a winery tour. One of the wineries I visited has this wine shake that they were famous for. What is a wine shake? It is a wine milkshake is what it is!
The wine milkshake I had was dark chocolate, red wine, and raspberry. Wow was it good! That wine shake was the inspiration for this chocolate wine smoothie.
