This clean eating peppermint mocha is the perfect way to ring in your holiday spirit!
I have to be honest, I’ve never had a peppermint mocha before creating this recipe. While I like peppermint, it’s just not the first thing I look for when I purchase a warm drink. I never liked candy canes growing up either. As I got older, I learned to like it. But it’s still not the first thing I go for.
However, after making this myself, I see what all the fuss is about. This is delicious!
I think it could quite possibly be the perfect coffee drink for sipping around the holiday table with friends and family. I hope you’ll agree!

Make this easy coffee drink at home for instant holiday spirit! NOTE: I use a french press. So the directions here reflect that. If you use a regular coffee machine, simply follow the amounts and put the coffee and other items into your filter. Be aware that THIS WILL ONLY WORK IN COFEE MAKERS THAT USE PAPER FILTERS. Other types of coffee makers could get clogged by the herbs.
- 2 1/2 cups boiling water
- 1 tbsp. dried peppermint leaves (you can add more if you like, but I found this amount to be just right for my taste.)
- 1/4 cup coffee grounds
- 1 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
- unsweetened almond milk to taste ( you can use regular milk too)
- honey or other sweetener to taste (add this to your cup AFTER brewing)
Steep the peppermint leaves, coffee and cocoa powder in the boiling water for at least 20 minutes for a good strong flavor.
Strain the liquid and pour in to cup.
Add honey to taste and serve.
