The Perfect Holiday Drink!
Time and time again, we boast about how we save time and calories by making our own coffee concoctions at home. This time, we were inspired by a care package that was sent to our home containing one special, never before seen (at least by us) ingredient – sugar-free peppermint syrup!
We absolutely cannot handle our excitement when Choczero announces they’ve got new products on the way. And these days, it seems like that’s happening often! Whatever they’re doing, they’re doing it right. Just recently they announced 3 new Honest Syrup flavors – raspberry, vanilla and peppermint to join their already wildly successful chocolate, caramel and pecan maple flavors. All of the syrups in their Honest Syrup line are made with no added water, preservatives or sugar. Perfect for anyone on a keto or low carb diet; they make the perfect gift too!
Just think of all the possibilities that open up once you’re about to make Starbucks drinks right at home. Our white chocolate peppermint mocha is completely sugar-free and comes in at only 1 net carb per serving (total grams of carbs minus fiber). It kept us nice and warm through some tough winter days this year. We hope it’ll do the same for you!
A few recipe notes:
- if you don’t have Honest Syrup, feel free to use a few drops of peppermint extract. You’ll lose a bit of sweetness that the Honest Syrup adds, but you’ll get that peppermint flavor you’re after.
- if you don’t have cocoa butter, you should consider getting some! It’s quite versatile and makes great keto white chocolate. On the off chance, you have some Torani White Chocolate syrup, you can use that, about 1-2 tablespoons. If you’re using the Torani syrup, omit any erythritol.
- you can use a cup of brewed coffee in place of the espresso, but you’ll need to omit a lot of liquid. Consider skipping the almond milk entirely and relying on the melted cocoa butter to give added creaminess alone.
