I am a coffee addict. Being a working mom of 2 kids, it is the staple of every morning. I will also sometimes use coffee an hour before a workout, as it is shown to improve endurance and reduce pain. At holiday time, it's nice to spice it up a bit, but I am always looking for ways to do so without the added sugar, calories and dairy products that most flavored lattes come along with. Did you know that a rather popular peppermint latte packs over 40 grams of sugar? That's more than a can of soda.
So here is my simple Peppermint Mocha for chilly winter days that won't sabotage your clean eating.
8 oz strong coffee
About 4oz coconut milk
1 tsp organic cocoa powder
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
I find it works best to mix in the blender or bullet. You can use a little honey for sweetener, and add some coconut whipped cream onto the top.
I hope you enjoy!
