Peppermint Mocha Recipe

By Peanut Palate

🔪Prep Time: 5 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 10 mins


¾ cup oat or cashew milk Oat/cashew milk have the most neutral taste. Almond/soy milks will leave an aftertaste for this.

6 tbsp freshly brewed coffee You could make some coffee using instant coffee powder if you don't have fresh coffee from a coffee maker

1½ tbsp cocoa powder

6 tbsp fresh mint leaves these need to be fresh, not dried. You could alternatively use peppermint extract, but you would only use a tiny pinch at a time until you reach the desired taste, as it is really strong

Pinch vanilla extract

sweetener, as per your taste I used stevia drops, so I don't have a measurement of how many tbsp of sugar you would use. You can use any type of dry or liquid sweetener – xylitol would work the best, but white sugar can be used too. Other alternatives that may have a slightly different aftertaste could be brown sugar, coconut sugar, coconut syrup, 100% pure maple syrup, agave, etc. Start with 1 teaspoon and add more as desired.

vegan whipped cream I use Gay Lea brand of Coconut Whipped Cream


1Boil all ingredients in a stovetop pan over medium high heat.

2When the milk begins boiling, turn off the stove and remove the pot from the heat.

3Pour it into a cup and top with vegan whipped cream. Garnish with optional cocoa powder and fresh mint leaves.

4Enjoy right away!
