Homemade healthy peppermint mocha that tastes just like the Starbucks version with only 5 grams of sugar (1/11th of the sugar of the traditional!). Entirely dairy free, vegan, low sugar, and full of holiday flavor!


  • 2 shots espresso
  • 1 tbsp stevia-sweetened chocolate chips, such as Lily’s
  • 1/2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp sweetened condensed coconut milk
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened dairy-free milk
  • Coconut whipped cream, vegan marshmallows, chocolate shavings to top


  1. Add the chocolate chips, maple syrup, condensed coconut milk, and peppermint extract to a mug.
  2. Brew the espresso over into the mug. Once brewed, use a spoon to stir the mixture.
  3. Carefully pour the mixture into a blender that can stand hot liquids. Add in the dairy-free milk, and blend for 30 seconds.
  4. Pour back into the mug and top with desired toppings. Enjoy!


The espresso machine I recommend is the Calphalon iQ Espresso Machine
