Dairy Free Peppermint Mocha Creamer
This dairy free Peppermint Mocha Creamer is so simple to make. No need to buy pricey seasonal flavored lattes at the drive through when you can make it in your own kitchen! I start with a base of dairy free creamer—I like soy and oat the best. I tried using non dairy milk for this, but it just wasn’t the right consistency for me. But if it is what you have on hand, then by all means! Then I add chocolate syrup—did you know that many chocolate syrups are vegan? Whole Foods 365, Santa Cruz, Holy Kakow, and even Hershey’s! Then a bit of peppermint and vanilla extracts (to balance each other out) and a quick stir! That’s what? 1, 2, 3, 4 ingredients? Boom—simple! Because we all need a win this time of year! I make a big jar each time—about 2 cups of creamer. It’s enough to last me for the week!
Easy Peppermint Hot Chocolate
Normally at this time of year I make hot chocolate for the boys using soynog! (Check out my Christmas Hot Chocolate recipe!). But last week I made them some using this peppermint mocha creamer for a base. Really good. I just filled their glass (we have some mini Christmas mugs) about half way with creamer, and then topped it off with some extra soy milk, and warmed it all up. Yum!

Seasonal Coffee Drinks
The funny thing is that I’ve been drinking this seasonal latte drink since before it was in season! As a blogger, I usually start making seasonal foods the season before! So in August I was testing and sipping on my Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte. And then at the beginning of November I started testing this Peppermint Mocha Creamer. Apparently now I should really start testing more green smoothies for Veganuary…..but I think I’ll stay right here in Christmas land for a little bit longer—it’s so cozy here!
