If you make a drink in the blender and it doesn’t have ice cream in it, that counts as a smoothie, right?  I love Almond Joys, but I used to hate them as a kid.  One Halloween, there was a ton of them left in our family’s candy bowl because no one wanted them.  Since there were so many left, I ate one (or…5) and ever since then, I love them.  For the record, I really do know that this isn’t the most healthy smoothie.  But, it’s a lot healthier than it could be.  Sometimes, you just need some chocolate!  If you’re someone who likes Almond Joys, be sure to try out this Almond Joy smoothie!
