PALEO PEPPERMINT MOCHA

January 29, 2018

 

 

 

I am a lover of all things coffee. When I first made the transition to paleo, it was not easy to say goodbye to my beloved creamers and lattes. When I stumbled upon this recipe last winter, it instantly became a favorite. This non-dairy, creamy peppermint mocha is easy to make and absolutely delicious! Hope it makes your January Monday a little brighter! 

 
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 shot of your favorite espresso (or 2 c. strong coffee)
  • 2/3 cup coconut milk or unsweetened almond milk, heated
  • 1 1/2 tbs cacao powder
  • 1 tbs raw honey
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • Optional: Sprinkle with dark chocolate shavings or crushed cacao nibs
INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Make the shot of expresso or strong coffee

  2. Warm the coconut milk or almond milk

  3. Add coffee and milk to a small blender or NutriBullet, along with the cacao powder, honey and peppermint

  4. Blend for about 15-30 seconds until mixed and foamy (you can also just stir everything together for the froth-free version)

  5. Top with chocolate shavings or crushed cacao nib sprinkles if desired

  6. Enjoy!
