Vegan Peppermint Mocha

by Jill Dalton

It’s that time of year! Mint Mocha Time!!!! This recipe is based on my absolute favorite coffee drink that is only offered during the winter season at Starbucks. My recipe contains zero refined sugar and zero dairy but is still super delicious and fills my heart and belly with the Holiday Spirit!

I did not see in your recipe for the vegan mocha how much vanilla to add and if using a coffee substitute for the shot of espresso what would the measurement be for a “shot?”

Depends on how strong you make your coffe but I would say 1/2 cup regular coffee.

where do you get shot espresso from and vanilla powder or can you use vanilla extract?
