If you go to the coffee shop to get a drink, expect to pay $4-5 per drink. Those drinks usually have questionable ingredients, too. This is a better for you peppermint mocha coffee that's easy to make at home with no special equipment.

This recipe is easy to customize too. Use almond milk or coconut milk if you're dairy free. You can also use coconut sugar or stevia in place of the sugar.

I use McCormick pure peppermint extract. It's made with natural ingredients, and it's still inexpensive. It has a really good flavor too.

This is so easy to make. I brew extra coffee in the morning and reheat it to make this in the afternoon.
