Plus, I really, really like them and would love to have them all season long!
Hoping for a solution I picked up some ready made sugar-free peppermint mocha creamer at the grocery store, shuddered at the ingredient list, and promptly put it back down. Yuck. So I decided I wanted to tackle the peppermint mocha and come up with a dairy-free, sugar-free, Keto friendly version. It took some trial and error, but I think I've got it! Now I can have a keto peppermint mocha anytime.
Not only is this recipe Keto, but it's also paleo, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and sugar-free.
