Say farewell to pumpkin spice season and hello peppermint paradise! It’s time to swap out those fall beverages with a winter-inspired drink that tastes like the holiday season. Fill up your coffee with delicious peppermint flavor complimented by rich, chocolaty mocha goodness. Our Skinny Peppermint Mocha Cold Brew recipe gives the coffee shops a run for their money, as it provides the same great flavor but none of the guilt!

Minty, chocolaty and energizing, peppermint mocha is the new “in” flavor of the season. One walk through the grocery store and you’ll see peppermint mocha products all over the shelves. Take a stroll through your local coffee shop or café and they likely have a peppermint-flavored coffee beverage on the menu. However, all of these seasonal treats rarely meet the requirements for your weight loss meal plan.

That’s why we wanted to treat you with a healthy yet tasty treat that provides the peppermint mocha flavor you’re craving. Featuring a delicious blend of cold brew coffee, almond milk, cocoa powder and peppermint extract, our Skinny Peppermint Mocha Cold Brew recipe will become your go-to morning sip this holiday season.

Inspired by the Starbucks Peppermint Mocha coffee, our Skinny Peppermint Mocha Cold Brew is a smarter choice for your weight loss plan.

Blend until it’s smooth and creamy, then divide the drink among two glasses. Top each glass with two tablespoons of light whipped cream and a sprinkle of crushed peppermint candies and enjoy!
