Peppermint Low Carb Mocha Latte : Delicious at Christmas-time !
"If you want a festive coffee beverage without any sugar added, it’s time to take the reindeer by the horns and make it yourself. Here’s a recipe for a decadent yet low carb version of my favourite Christmas coffee drink.
Peppermint Mocha Latte (Yields 1 latte) 1/4 cup half and half or the dairy/non-dairy milk of your choice 1 tablespoon cocoa powder (check the label for no sugar) 1 drop peppermint essential oil or peppermint extract
In a small saucepan, heat half and half to medium heat, being careful not to scald. Whisk in cocoa powder and peppermint oil. Remove from heat. In a Vitamix or similar blender, whip together coffee and half and half mixture until frothy. Pour and serve, garnishing with a few extra sprinkles of cocoa powder."
No wonder the reindeer is smiling - it's a great coffee
