Looking to lose about 5 lbs by the weekend? I have your solution in my newest YouTube video.

If you are a member of TIU, you know that many of these tips are from the 7 day slim down. I love the 7DSD for photo shoots. I also am excited to announce that the Holiday Special for Tone It Up is now out and in your mailbox if you are a member! It features two special sections from Brittany of Eating Bird Food, and myself! Brittany shared some of her amazing recipes and I naturally helped create some holiday cocktails.

If you are not a member, chances are you have entered my contest to win one. I’m choosing a winner tomorrow at noon! To enter, visit my Facebook fan page. “Like” the page and let me know what your favorite video or blog post were this past year! I’m using it as market research as much as I’m using it to choose a winner. If you do not win, and decide to buy the plan anyway, you will be sent the Holiday Special so do not worry.

Here is one of my recipes that is featured in the TIU Holiday Special that I’m in love with!

The Naughty Minty-Chocolatini

I love the taste of peppermint and chocolate. The Starbucks skinny peppermint mocha is one of my favorite treats of the Holiday season. This year, Zico introduced a chocolate flavored coconut water that amazingly tastes like real chocolate milk. I kid you not. It’s the perfect healthy swap in your chocolate holiday cocktails:

✴ 1 oz Chocolate Zico Coconut Water
✴ 1 oz Vanilla Flavored Vodka
✴ .5 oz Peppermint Schnapps
✴ Stevia to taste (agave or sugar may be substituted)

Add all ingredients in a martini shaker. Blend well. Pour into a martini glass. Optional: Add a little stevia for a sweeter
beverage. Garnish with a mini candy cane. Non-Alcohol: Chocolate Zico with a dash of Mint Extract!
