Healthy, delicious frozen peppermint mocha! This is a Trim Healthy Mama "S" recipe.
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cashew or almond milk
  • 1½ Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I use Jay Robb's egg white protein powder)
  • 1 teaspoon MCT or coconut oil
  • ½ cup coffee (I used Trader Joe's plain instant coffee because my coffee maker is broken)
  • 2½ - 3 tsp Trim Healthy Mama Super Sweet Blend or equivalent* to taste
  • 1-2 drops peppermint extract
  • 1-2 cups of ice
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients (except for ice) in a blender and blend well. I recommend putting a drop of peppermint extract on a spoon, then dripping it into the blender so that you don't accidentally put too much in the shake. I start with one drop and increase to two if it's not minty enough. You can also add more or less sweetener depending on your taste preference.
  2. Once the ingredients are blended well, add ice until you get the consistency you want. For me, it's about 1 cup plus a few extra ice cubes.
  3. *If you substitute the sweetener, please check Trim Healthy Mama's sweetener conversion chart first!
  4. Top with whipped cream and Lily's chocolate chips or chocolate bar shavings - these toppings are optional, but really good, and they are what makes this an "S" recipe. If you leave the toppings out, you'll have a THM FP.
