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!

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
