A Peppermint Mocha is a classic seasonal treat that we look forward to every year. The flavor of fresh, bright peppermint pairs so well with sweet, creamy chocolate and rich coffee and creates a delicious drink that’s like a grown-up version of mint hot chocolate. We just can’t get enough of this festive latte! We used our Cacao Calm Plant-Based Collagen Boost Blend as the “mocha” in this Vegan Peppermint Mocha to give it a rich, chocolatey flavor and a boost of nourishing plant botanicals.
Our Cacao Calm blend is perfect to satisfy your chocolate cravings and help manage stress at the same time. It’s formulated with organic KSM-66 Ashwagandha Root Extract, which is an adaptogen that helps our bodies manage and regulate stress, while cacao works to provide a natural mood boost. Plus, our vegan blends help support your body’s natural collagen production process and promote healthier hair, skin, and nails using the power of plant botanicals.*
Making a Vegan Peppermint Mocha is super easy, so you’ll be sipping this delightfully festive latte in no time! All you have to do is combine our Cacao Calm Plant-Based Collagen Boost Blend with hot water and mix well (we like to use an electric whisk), then combine with espresso, dairy-free milk, and a few drops of peppermint extract. If you’re feeling extra festive, feel free to top with a bit of dairy-free whipped cream and crushed candy cane pieces or a sprinkle of cacao for extra holiday cheer!
