Clean Eating Peppermint Mocha

Peppermint Mocha

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)


  1. Steep the peppermint leaves, coffee and cocoa powder in the boiling water for at least 20 minutes for a good strong flavor.

  2. Strain the liquid and pour in to cup.

  3. Add honey to taste and serve.
