Keto Peppermint Mocha Recipe

This Peppermint Mocha Recipe Takes Just 5 Minutes to Make — and It's Keto-Friendly

Finished Mocha

With pumpkin spice season coming to a close, I'm ready to consume everything peppermint-flavoured. There are so many tempting foods this time of year, and I know I'm not one to deprive myself. But for those on the keto diet, the holidays can pose trouble, with many classic foods and drinks containing far too much sugar and carbohydrates for the (controversial) low-carb, high-fat diet.

If you've gone keto and you're missing those festive red cups this year — or you just prefer to save your carbs for dessert — you'll love this keto peppermint mocha recipe from Joy Filled Eats. It replaces sugary syrups and sauces with keto-friendly ingredients like peppermint extract, a low-carb sweetener, and sugar-free chocolate chips. Just measure out a few pantry staples, keep the coffee and milk toasty, and blend until frothy for the perfect minty treat. Keep scrolling for the recipe!

Notes

Make sure to keep the coffee and almond or coconut milk as warm as possible, so the chocolate melts when the ingredients are blended.
