There’s nothing better on weekends than sleeping in {I  mean, I’m a mom to a toddler who is my alarm, but my mom is here visiting, so seeing the clock say 8 rather than 7 was a massive treat this morning…thanks, Grandma!} and waking up to something warm + yummy in your cup.

I went to bed way too late last night so traded my usual green tea + honey morning ritual for a little extra caffeine boost. From my kitchen to yours, hope you enjoy this filling, winter festive clean peppermint mocha.

HEALTHY PEPPERMINT MOCHA

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup organic coffee, brewed
  • 3/4 scoop chocolate Perfect Fit, or chocolate protein powder of choice. If you don’t want to use a protein powder, sub with 1 tablespoon cacao powder.
  • 1/2 tablespoon raw, local, organic honey
  • 2-3 drops organic peppermint extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure, organic vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon Chocolate Glazed Donut Flavor God seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons organic, unsweetened coconut milk

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients in a mug + stir together until smooth
  2. Serve & enjoy warm or freeze coconut milk in ice cube trays. Add cubes to mocha & enjoy cold. Or add cubes and coffee mixture to blender and blend until frosty!

 

HAPPY WEEKEND!

Try subbing this for your favorite coffee shop sugar-infused treat today 🙂 Your new year’s resolution of being a healthy, happier person will thank you! …and keeping things homemade saves your wallet a few pennies too.

xoxo,

Shelley
