This Peppermint Mocha Coffee Syrup is just what you need during the holidays! 

It’s sweet, but not too sweet and has THE BEST flavor. So pure and natural!

I cannot wait for the holiday season each year so I can enjoy this festive recipe.

Whether you put it in your coffee, over ice cream, or just drink it by the spoonful it will become your go-to!

Peppermint Mocha Coffee Syrup This syrup makes your coffee taste AMAZING! I am a huge fan of Starbucks Peppermint Mocha, and I love that I can enjoy my own version at home. It is hard to believe that you can make your own syrup so easily, but once you try, you will never go back! Simply add 1TBS of this syrup and 2TBS of cream to your morning cup of coffee and ENJOY! https://happihomemade.com/recipe/peppermint-mocha-coffee-syrup/

I am a huge fan of Starbucks Peppermint Mocha, but I love that I can enjoy my own version at home too.

If only I could afford to have coffees made by baristas every day. However, I try to be frugal and wise with our money and knowing that I can make my own lattes makes it hard to spend $5 each day. 

You won’t believe how easy it is to make your own Peppermint Mocha Coffee Syrup. Just add water, sugar, cocoa powder, and peppermint extract. 

Sometimes in place of regular sugar I use half monk fruit sweetener and half coconut sugar. 

I bet you can even use peppermint essential oil in place of peppermint extract! 

Ingredients Needed:

1/2 cup water

1 cup sugar (or 1/2 cup monk fruit sweetener and 1/2 cup coconut sugar)

2 Tbsp cocoa powder

1/4 tsp peppermint extract

Simply add 1-2 Tbsp of this vegan syrup and 2 Tbsp heavy cream, half & half, or almond milk to your morning cup of coffee and ENJOY!

It is hard to believe that you can make your own syrups so easily, but once you try it, you will never go back!

If you have a Keurig that has a milk frother use that to froth your cream or milk. Otherwise, invest in this $12 milk frother on Amazon. 

I also use the frother to mix our hot cocoas, because yes sometimes we use packets of hot chocolate mix. 😉

    Can this me made using stevia?

    • Hi Michelle,

      I am not sure that Stevia will work in this recipe as the sugar helps to thicken the syrup. Maybe a stevia blend or erythritol would work….Sorry I am not more helpful with this! Blessings to you.
