I also have been a Starbucks lover for many years but the calories and sugar content do not work into my plan. This is a great alternative I use for for a Peppermint Mocha. When I have the craving for one, this does the trick!
4 oz. unsweetened almond milk
2 drops peppermint extract
6 coffee ice cubes
1 Scoop Chocolate Protein
(coffee ice cubes is just coffee frozen in an ice cube tray.)
Place all ingredients in blender and serve. Yummy!
