peppy peppermint mocha and a great giveaway!

Now what say’s the Holidays are here better then the tastes of peppermint, chocolate and coffee? Not much for me and this is one rich and delicious treat that takes about a minute to make. Just the scent of peppermint with the cocoa powder is an uplifting and holiday mood maker.

I found all natural candy canes in the grocery store, colored with vegetable juice which made my girls very happy =)

Ingredients: per serving

1 1/2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1 1/2 Tablespoons turbinado sugar
2-4 drops pure organic peppermint extract
1 Tablespoon warm water
1 cup strong fresh brewed coffee
3/4 cup soy or almond milk, warm


combine cocoa powder, sugar, peppermint and warm water in the bottom of a large mug and stir until combined. add coffee and warm vegan milk and stir again. top with additional cocoa powder as desired.

Now that you really want to make one of these, wouldn’t it be great if you had a brand new Keurig to brew that coffee with? I absolutely love this give-away!

Julie Cruz - I’ve been wanting a mixer like that for AGES!! I would LOVE one!!! We just remodeled a teeny bit in our home, and in the process, ended up having to pay more than we had hoped for (first guy did a crappy job, so we had to pay another guy to come fix his screw ups). There went extra money….so dreams of this mixer are just that….a dream. It would be the perfect addition to our kitchen! Eeeeeek! 🙂
