Holiday Drinks: Peppermint Mocha, London Fog Tea Latte & Salted Cashew Hot Chocolate


Description

Time for all the warm drinks: can I offer you a Peppermint Mocha, London Fog Tea Latte, or a Salted Cashew Hot Chocolate? All drinks are refined sugar-free, and easily made dairy-free + vegan by using your favorite dairy-free milk!


Scale

Ingredients

For the Peppermint Mocha

For the London Fog Tea Latte

  • 8 oz. dairy-free milk of choice
  • 1 tablespoon Tao of Tea Organic Earl Grey Tea, brewed in 1 cup of hot water. Add more depending on how strong you like your tea – you want it dark and strong for this recipe since it will be diluted with milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • Maple Syrup, to taste, I like about 1 tablespoon

For the Salted Cashew Hot Chocolate


Instructions

For the Peppermint Mocha

  1. Brew your coffee to your desired strength. Pour into the mug.
  2. Heat milk in a milk frother or the microwave. Add the chocolate, peppermint, and maple syrup, and either blend in a blender or combine in the milk frother until completely blended and frothy.
  3. Pour into your mug, garnish with dairy-free whipped cream and/or a candy cane for a festive twist, and serve immediately.

For the London Fog Tea Latte

  1. Brew tea to your desired strength. You want it rather dark and strong since you’ll be diluting the tea with dairy-free milk. Fill half your mug with the tea.
  2. Heat milk in a milk frother or the microwave. Add the vanilla extract and maple syrup, and either blend in a blender or combine in the milk frother until completely blended and frothy.
  3. Pour over the tea and garnish as desired! I kept it simple with a bit of dairy-free whipped cream.

For the Salted Cashew Hot Chocolate

  1. Heat milk in a milk frother or the microwave. Add the chocolate (or maple syrup and cacao powder), cashew butter, and sea salt, and either blend in a blender or combine in the milk frother until completely blended and frothy.
  2. Pour into your mug and serve immediately. Garnish with dairy-free whipped cream, marshmallows, or any other garnishes you’d like!

Notes

You can use any kind of sweetener you like for these drinks, but I love the maple syrup for it’s warm, delicious flavor! Honey or any kind of granulated sugars will also work.
