01 Dec Paleo and Whole30 Peppermint Mocha Latte
This Paleo and Whole30 Peppermint Mocha Latte is Christmas in a cup. You only need four ingredients for this healthy, vegan, dairy-free holiday treat.
Happy December! Are you in the holiday spirit yet? We have a Christmas tree up and a lone set of lights on the front of the house. As busy as things are right now, that’s probably as good as it’s going to get this year.
And I’m okay with that. When I need a little extra Christmas cheer, I’ll just cozy up to this Paleo and Whole30 Peppermint Mocha Latte in my fuzzy socks in front of the fire.
It’s so minty….and creamy…
The good part? It only requires four ingredients.
The great part? It’s so easy to make! Just pop everything in a Ninja or other high-powered blender for 15 seconds, and you’re done.
The best part? It’s healthy! Now, this Paleo and Whole30 Peppermint Mocha Latte isn’t sweet. If you’re familiar with the Whole30, you shouldn’t miss having a sweetener much. If you’re Paleo, add a little honey or maple syrup, and you’ll be good to go.
- Begin steeping the peppermint tea bags in freshly brewed coffee. Steep 4 minutes.
- Heat coconut milk over medium heat in a saucepan until hot but not boiling, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon.
- Add coffee, coconut milk and cacao powder to a Ninja or other high-powered blender.
- Split into two coffee mugs, and top with whipped coconut cream and unsweetened cacao nibs if desired.
I’ve gotten a lot of questions about what foods are Whole30-compliant and why some aren’t. I’m so happy to help, but I would definitely recommend reading the Whole30 books if you haven’t already. Knowledge really is power, especially when you’re just trying to make it through the work day and that 3pm chocolate bar craving hits. You’ll know why you’re feeling the way you are and what you can do to squash it.
If you’re like me, a busy working mom with too much to do to sit down and stop everything to read a book, you should definitely check out Amazon’s Audible program. That’s how I found time to read It Starts With Food, by having it read to me. I love, love Audible. I just recently purchased Food Freedom Forever with one of my monthly credits, and it’s another winner so far. I listen to it in the car to and from work and also while I’m cooking and doing chores.
