Ingredients

Instructions

  • Scoop 3 tablespoons of the mix into two large mugs. 6 tablespoons total for two drinks.
  • Add milk and peppermint extract into a medium saucepan. Heat over medium low until it comes to a simmer.
  • If you are using coconut milk powder in the mix, simply add 1 1/2 cups boiling water to the cup and whisk.
  • Pour mixture into the mug and give everything a really nice stir or whisk. I like to put everything into the blender so it gets even frothier.
  • Top off with homemade whipped cream if you'd like or serve plain. This can also be poured over ice and enjoyed cold.

Notes

  • Make sure you purchase peppermint extract and not mint extract.
  • This can be served cold. Simply pour it over ice after it's blended up.
  • If you are making the hot chocolate mix and not using coconut milk powder, I recommend using 3 tablespoons of hot chocolate mix per 1 1/2 cups of non-dairy milk.
  • 2 servings calls for 3 cups of non-dairy milk. Feel free to double or triple the recipe if you'd like.
  • If you want something more luxurious, use half canned coconut milk and half filtered water.
