Hi, my name is Megan and I am a mocha-colic. Well, used to be. A venti cafe mocha a day was my norm for years, until my 80 pound weight loss when I started reading food labels. It was then I realized I was drinking 400 calories, or basically a meal in pretty cup. Gosh, it was good but really it was all the sugar that made it so good.
A few months ago, I took a sip of a friend's cafe mocha to see if it was still all the glory and joy I remembered. Truth is I thought I was going to pass out from the sugar high. It was too much for my poor body.
You don't realize how nasty tasting processed foods are until you've been off them awhile. Actually, it's scary how quickly your taste buds can detect artificial ingredients and preservatives after you've been eating "clean" for awhile.
I say clean because I still let a cookie or two or three sneak in here and there, and while they may be made with healthier ingredients that's still not what I'd consider 100% clean eating.
But truthfully, life is no fun without treats which is I take the time to make healthier versions of foods I've always loved. It prevents me from gaining a bunch of weight, having an immune reaction and basically, keeps me sane.
Since my Skinny Peppermint Mocha is one of my most popular recipes, I decided to take the recipe to the next level and transform it into a a real life coffee creamer! As in, you can store it in the fridge and use it anytime.
Guys, have you read the labels on flavored store bought coffee creamers? High fructose corn syrup (which causes weight gain and inflammation), artificial ingredients, and who know what else.
Unfortunately, your favorite coffee shop is using many of these ingredients too. They're okay here and there, but not every day. Step away from the foods that have ingredients you don't recognize!
This Skinny Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer is SUPER EASY to make. Like 5 seconds to plop everything in a blender and two seconds to blend.
That's all! Store in the fridge and you've got homemade coffee creamer for a week or two ready for whenever you need your fix. Who doesn't have time for that?
Because it's the holidays, this Skinny Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer is loaded with minty freshness. Great for digestion and calming the body of all the holiday stress.
If peppermint isn't your thing, you can substitute almond or vanilla extract to make it a skinny mocha coffee creamer. You won't hurt me feelings! But you will hurt my feelings if you keep buying the fake stuff.
This Skinny Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer is naturally sweetened and dairy free. You can use any milk to make it. I highly recommend you get chocolate extract and espresso powder to use in this. It gives the creamer an extra deep, rich chocolatey flavor. Worth the splurge and they both last a really long time!
Once you taste how amazing the flavors are, you're never gonna go back to the store bought stuff. But remember healthy food tastes bad at first, so give yourself time to adjust and it will happen! Now, who's ready to go on a coffee date with me?
