While we all love to add a little holiday cheer to our morning coffee this time of year, if you are following a ketogenic diet (high fat, moderate protein, low carbohydrate), you might think delicious mix-ins are off the menu for you.

Loaded with sugary syrups, your typical coffee shop holiday favorites are anything but keto-friendly. And the mixes you buy at the store aren't exactly low-carb either.

Not to worry, though, as the author of the plant-based keto book Ketotarian, I have the perfect keto twist on one of my seasonal favorites, a peppermint mocha.

With just a few simple low-sugar, high-fat substitutions, you can still sip merrily.

Keto-Friendly Peppermint Mocha

Yields 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup coconut or almond milk
  • ½ cup hot coffee
  • ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract
  • ½ teaspoon cacao powder
  • ½ teaspoon, or more, stevia or monk fruit to taste
  • 1 tablespoon MCT oil

Method:

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, mix together coffee, dairy-free milk of choice, peppermint, cacao, MCT oil, and sweetener of choice. 
  2. Stir until heated through and fully combined.
  3. Pour into a mug and enjoy.
  4. Optional: If you have a milk frother, froth to make more creamy and top with coconut whip for additional healthy fats if you desire.
