Peppermint Mocha Creamer

Everyone knows I love my coffee. I mean, LOVE. One of my favorite holiday drinks is the Peppermint Black & White Mocha at Starbucks but I make most of my coffee at home now, which is why I decided to try making my own creamer.

This was my first attempt at making a peppermint mocha creamer and it turned out pretty decent. I think it would’ve been a lot better if I used whole milk instead of the 2% I had at home.

I’ll be trying out other recipes after the holidays and will share them here.

Peppermint Mocha (Recipe originally found at Deliciously Organic)

1 Cup whole milk

1 Cup heavy creamer

4 tablespoons maple syrup

3 tablespoons cocoa

1 teaspoon peppermint extract

Whisk together milk, cream, maple syrup and cocoa in a saucepan over medium heat. When it begins to steam, remove from heat and mix in peppermint extract. Strain through a fine mesh sieve (if you don’t want the cocoa floating in your creamer/coffee), pour in glass bottle & store in refrigerator.

I think you could probably change up the measurements of the cocoa depending on your preference. I was fine with the 3 tablespoons but could see someone putting in a little extra for the flavor. I prefer the peppermint over the cocoa.

Enjoy!

What’s your favorite coffee flavor?

    I’m not a coffee drinker but I love chai tea, so I started making my own eggnog chai at home with eggnog flavored creamer. Must try this peppermint mocha creamer with my hot chocolate.

      Yeah, it’ll be really good with hot chocolate!

    Ooh, excellent idea, thanks for sharing! I’m addicted to fancy flavored coffee beverages, too. I love using cocoa, almond extract, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and eggnog to make naturally flavored french-pressed coffee drinks (not all at once, although, that could be delicious…).

      No problem 🙂

    Is the maple taste prominent? I ask because I am wondering if swapping it for Agave would make a difference. Great idea!

    • Berrak December 21, 2011, 4:53 pm

      No, I’m sure agave would work too. Let me know if you try it out!

    I am not usually a coffee person. I prefer tea instead. I can try the peppermint mocha creamer with my tea and see how it tastes.
