Move over Pumpkin Spice Latte... tis the season for the Peppermint Mocha!
This simple latte recipe will definitely get you in the holiday spirit and provide enough energy to deck the halls, visit Santa, and wrap all those gifts after spending hours at the mall. With only three ingredients, this Peppermint Mocha takes only seconds to make, so ditch the Starbucks drive-thru and save yourself 5 bucks and about 300 calories. Here's all you need: a cup of brewed coffee or espresso, a tablespoon of Cacao PowerCreamer, and 4 drops of Peppermint Oil. Simply blend these together and you’ve got yourself a delectable holiday treat. Add a drop of liquid stevia to taste and Vital Proteins collagen peptides for an extra boost. For full holiday effect, sip it slowly while cuddled up on the couch in front of a crackling fire watching Love Actually :)
8 oz brewed coffee
1 tsp Cacao PowerCreamer
4 drops of Peppermint Oil
*No Peppermint Oil? We've got the easiest hack! Once blended, swirl a sugar-free candy cane into your cup o' joe for the same great taste!
In a blender, combine coffee, PowerCreamer and peppermint oil (plus optional ingredients to taste).
Cover and blend until smooth and frothy.
