What Is A Peppermint Mocha?

If you’ve never tried a Peppermint Mocha before, you’re in for quite a treat! This caffeinated coffee drink is packed with chocolate and peppermint flavor and can be enjoyed both hot and cold.

A cup of coffee that has been made even more popular by Starbucks, this peppermint mocha recipe is a low carb variation that can be quickly and easily in the comfort of your own home!

Is Peppermint Mocha Better Hot Or Cold?

Choosing between a cold cup of coffee and a hot cup of coffee is like asking me to choose which one of my children is my favorite. I love them all for their many wonderful and different attributes. The same goes for a good cup of coffee.

Many people prefer to enjoy their peppermint mochas hot because they are commonly enjoyed in the cooler months, but if you’re an iced coffee fanatic, there’s no harm in choosing to drink them cold.

Ingredients You’ll Need

One of the struggles of making specialty low carb recipes is that they often have numerous ingredients that you don’t use on a daily basis.

While you will need to make sure you have peppermint extract before getting started, you only need five simple ingredients to make this Peppermint Mocha.

  • Coffee- Don’t feel obligated to go out and buy an expensive brand of coffee if you aren’t a regular coffee drinker. Just use whatever you already brew on a daily basis. You can even use instant coffee if that’s what you have in the pantry.
  • Sugar Free Chocolate Chips– You can buy your own Lily’s or ChocZero, but you can stretch your budget even more if you use my recipe to make your own homemade chocolate chips. They can even be used to make a variety of Keto treats like my wildy popular Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies.
  • Swerve- This works as a carb free, sugar free, calorie free sugar alternative.
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk– Almond Milk is low in calories and carbs, and gives the Peppermint Mocha a creamy consistency.
  • Peppermint Extract– Gives the familiar peppermint flavor to this copycat Starbucks drink without the addition of any fancy sugar-filled syrups.

How To Make Peppermint Mocha

If you’re accustomed to making a cup of coffee at home, this is just as simple as making your daily cup. The only difference is adding in the peppermint kick to make it extra festive!

Follow the steps below for a Peppermint Mocha that will satisfy your craving at any time!

  1. Place the instant coffee, sugar-free chocolate chips, peppermint extract, and almond milk in a blender.
  2. Blend the ingredients until smooth.
  3. Garnish and enjoy!


  • Swap out the extract. If you’re not a huge fan of peppermint or just want to try adding different flavors to your daily cup of joe, try almond or vanilla extract for a sweet, earthy flavor.
  • Serve it iced. Use cold brew or chilled coffee to make this Peppermint Mocha and serve over a large glass of ice.
  • Make it fancy. All of the peppermint flavors comes from the extract, but one of the best things about getting coffee from your favorite coffee shop is the fun adornments served on top. Don’t forget to top yours with a little flair for an extra treat.

What To Serve With It

As I mentioned above, there are several things that can make this Copy Cat Starbucks Peppermint Mocha feel extra special.
