Freshen up this holiday season with a minty treat. A dairy-free alternative to your go-to latte, this Peppermint Mocha Latte will keep you warm all winter long. One of our favorite food bloggers, Meagan Bickings (@earthfood_kitchen on Instagram), dreamt up her own version of the beloved Peppermint Mocha Latte in an effort to keep all coffee lovers (and their wallets!) satisfied. And she totally nailed it!
This collagen recipe calls for ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, from coconut milk to freshly brewed coffee. You’ll want to whip up this easy-to-make morning drink before starting your workday. All you really need to make the beverage a serious standout is adding two scoops of Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer® in Mocha ($29; shop now on vitalproteins.com), which is free of dairy, gluten, artificial sweeteners and added sugars. It also contains healthy fats, making it ideal for those following the keto diet.
Enjoy this Peppermint Mocha Latte for a fresh start to your day.
