Peppermint Mocha Monday💥
A busy week over here calls for a fun and yummy start. This is easy to make & honestly a staple of mine throughout the month of December.
What’s your favorite holiday drink? I would have to say mine is a tie between this healthy peppermint mocha latte or my gingerbread latte that I shared on Instagram last week.
During the holiday season, I typically treat myself with a few flavored lattes here and there but I honestly prefer to make them at home. I think after working from home for years you really perfect the latte – and this one is no outlier.
Ingredients needed to make this healthy peppermint mocha latte:
- espresso or coffee
- milk of preference
- peppermint extract
- cocoa or cacao powder
- maple syrup
- collagen peptides
- optional toppings: whipped cream, marshmallows, crushed peppermint candy, etc.
If you’re looking for a fun coffee recipe, this one is for you. I’ll share some more coffee recipes below in case you are looking to spice up your current routine.

Healthy Peppermint Mocha Latte
easy, quic, and a healthy twist on your favorite winter drink.
- 1 cup milk (I use coocut milk usually)
- 1-2 shots espresso (1 cup of coffee works too)
- 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
- 1-2 tsp cacao powder (cocoa works too)
- splash 100% natural maple syrup
- 1 scoop collagen peptides
- whipped cream
- crushed peppermint candy
Add milk, peppermint extract, cacao powder, maple syrup, and collagen peptides to a frother and froth until consistent. If you don't have a frother you can use a blender isntead.
Add ice to a cup, add the milk mixture, and top with coffee.
Pour & enjoy.✨

I’m always looking for fun coffee recipes! This one sounds delicious. I really need to purchase some collagen peptides. I’d feel better about my caffeine habit! 😂
thank you! haha, I mean it is a good source of protein ¯\_( ͡❛ ͜ʖ ͡❛)_/¯
This looks absolutely phenomenal!!!
thank you! 🙂
Iced peppermint mochas are my absolute favorite, but I only get them on special occasions because of all the sugar. I love your idea of sweetening it just a little bit with maple syrup! Definitely going to give this a try 😀
sameee! I pretty much make one every day during the winter months, just swapping the traditional ingredients for some a bit better for your body and metabolic health 🙂
This sounds like a delicious new way to enjoy my coffee.
thanks jeff! hope you enjoy it
I just got an espresso maker for Christmas, and this recipe looks great! I never thought to add protein to a coffee drink. That’s a great idea to get in some extra nutrients! Thanks!
