35-Calorie Peppermint Mocha
Yields: 1 peppermint mocha
This easy drink tastes just like the ones from your favorite coffee shop for a fraction of the price! Coffee, chocolate, and peppermint are the perfect holiday flavor combination. This recipe is easily doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled to serve more.
  1. Add the milk, cocoa powder, and stevia to a small saucepan. Warm over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, for 2-3 minutes or until the cocoa powder has dissolved and the milk is completely warmed through. Stir in the peppermint extract.
  2. Add the coffee to a mug, and pour the milk mixture on top.
Notes: Any milk may be substituted for the cashew milk, and any sweetener may be substituted for the vanilla crème stevia.

I do not recommend using Dutched or “Special Dark” cocoa powder. One tablespoon of regular unsweetened cocoa powder already produces a fairly dark chocolaty taste.

Two shots of espresso may be substituted for the double-strength coffee.
