Peppermint Mocha (Dairy-Free + Paleo)

There’s just something very wintery about a peppermint mocha. Pretty much as soon as Thanksgiving is over, I’m all about it. It is basically the holidays in a cup. I think most of you can get on board with that! So, give our peppermint mocha a try for a healthier, lower sugar version of a holiday season favorite.

We may have gone all out with our peppermint mocha, indulging in some coconut cream whipped cream and chocolate sauce to top it. It was so so worth it. You can find our recipe for coconut cream whipped cream from one of our early posts. You really can’t go wrong with this peppermint mocha, with or without the whipped cream topping. It’s a rich, bold, and cozy way to dive right into the holiday season. Go ahead and make yourself a peppermint mocha treat over the weekend and enjoy each and every sip.
