Skinny Peppermint Mocha Latte Recipe – warm up with this low calorie version of popular winter coffee drink! You only need a few ingredients and less than 10 minutes to make it!
‘Tis the season for hot and sweet coffee drinks!
Being a huge coffee lover and a fan of all coffee drinks, the holiday season is my favorite because I get a free pass to make them as often as I want to. There are so many options, you could have a different one each day!
This is one of my favorite winter coffee drinks: the Peppermint Mocha Latte! It requires only 5 ingredients that most likely you have on hand and takes only a few minutes to prepare.
Brew up your coffee or make an espresso for a stronger drink. Make the milk and chocolate mixture, add peppermint extract and Sweet ‘N Low sweetener and mix it all up. Dress up with a swirl of whipped cream and a sprinkle of crushed peppermint candy or holiday funfetti and enjoy! It doesn’t get easier than that!
Use your favorite milk: 2%, low-fat, almond or soy. Use dark or semi-sweet chocolate.
