Peppermint Mocha Latte Recipe

After a lot of running around, I think I am finally just about done preparing for Christmas.  I’m done shopping and everything that’s been delivered has been wrapped.  I’m waiting on one super slow Amazon order that I hope arrives today.  Most of my baking is done and in the freezer.  I have a few final things to bake since Christmas dinner is at my home this year. All in all, I’m ahead of time compared to last year. Normally, I am running around on Christmas Eve day picking things up and finishing my wrapping on Christmas Eve.

I have decided that since I don’t have to run around like a crazy person today, I am going to take some time to watch some of my favorite Christmas movies on Netflix. This post has been sponsored by Netflix.  I am part of the Netflix Stream Team.  As a member of the Netflix Stream Team, I get to watch all sorts of fun movies on Netflix. There are so many fun Christmas movies to watch right now. I’ve decided to enjoy my favorite Peppermint Mocha Latte Recipe while I enjoy The Polar Express.

The Polar Express is about a little boy who is starting to wonder if Santa Claus really does exist. He boards a magical train that is heading to the North Pole along with other children.  While he is there, he gets a wonderful gift that only people who really still believe can enjoy. This is one of my very favorite Christmas movies.

Peppermint Mocha Latte Recipe

It’s very easy to make your own Peppermint Mocha Latte. No need to run to the local coffee store.  Just start with a tablespoon of cocoa, some sugar or stevia and a drop of peppermint extract.

Add hot coffee and stir.  Then pour in the frothed milk. I use a milk frother but you can simply heat the milk in a pan and froth with a whisk. It just takes longer.
