Healthy Peppermint Mocha for just 62 calories that is packed with chocolate and peppermint flavor for the perfect holiday drink.
I don’t know about you but I have a hard time resisting all the delicious holiday coffee drinks that pop up virtually everywhere. Especially now that the cold weather has rolled in, I find myself tempted to buy a peppermint mocha every time I leave the house. And it doesn’t help that there is a Starbucks in my grocery store, Target, and within walking distance of our house. But with 240 calories and 28 grams of sugar (7 SP for a grande with 2% milk), it’s an indulgence that I don’t feel like I can treat myself to daily.
Luckily, it’s really easy to make one at home that tastes amazing and is much better for you. This easy, at home version has less calories, fat, and sugar than the original version and also doesn’t have a bunch of artificial ingredients that are usually found in the store bought versions. Plus it is really easy to customize so it is exactly as chocolately, pepperminty, and sweet as you like. I even have a quick, microwave trick to make frothy, foamy milk at home in less than a minute. You will love it and your wallet and waistline will thank you.
