Peppermint White Mocha Recipe ♥ 12 Days of DIYs

Welcome to the last 12 Days of DIY post! If you've been counting you probably noticed this is the 11th post and that's because there will be no 12th DIY post this year. If you follow me on twitter you already know this month has been super stressful for me not only with Christmas but also my shop, blog and other personal matters. So instead of squeezing another blog post in one day I decided to just make this post the last. I hope you guys are alright with that and enjoyed these blog posts because I loved making them. I have one more blog post for tomorrow and then I will be taking a short break (I will probably resume blogging before the new year). Until then,
Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

One of my favorite holiday drinks from Starbucks is their Peppermint White Mocha (I usually drink it iced or as a frappuccino depending on how I'm feeling), it's a mocha with white chocolate sauce and peppermint syrup and it's amazing! I wished they carried this drink all year around but sadly they don't so I decided to make my own version so that I can enjoy this delicate drink whenever I want.

You will need:
- A cute mug
- Espresso or strong coffee
- Milk of your choice (I used vanilla soy milk but I prefer almond milk)
- White chocolate sauce
- Peppermint extract
- Sugar (I used Splenda because we were our of Stevia)
- Whipped cream
- Milk frother (optional)

Recipe:
1 cup of strong coffee
1 cup of milk
4 tablespoons of white chocolate sauce
1/4 teaspoons of peppermint extract
2 packets of sugar sweetener
Whipped cream for topping

First make 1 cup of your favorite strong coffee (the Nescafe Clasico Dark Roast is my favorite instant coffee). While the coffee is still hot add a packet of sweetener and mix. Pour the coffee in your mug then set aside and work on the next mixture.

Warm up your milk and add 4 tablespoons of white chocolate sauce, 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract (a little goes a long way), and another sweetener packet. Use a milk frother (if you don't have one use a spoon and stir) to incorporate everything together and pour the liquid in your favorite mug. Froth the drink one last time and serve.

Top with whipped cream and any other finishing you like to drink and you are complete!

Happy Holidays
