The Best Peppermint Mocha Keto Coffee
On a cold winter morning, you’ll need an indulgent hot drink to keep you warm. We couldn’t think of a better Keto coffee recipe than this peppermint mocha Keto coffee to serve this purpose. Its rich, bitter, and sweet flavors perfectly complement each other and are intensified with a pinch of salt. Trust us; this decadent Keto-friendly coffee drink is worth trying.
What is a mocha, anyway?
Short for caffe mocha or mocha latte, a mocha is a chocolate-flavored coffee beverage made with espresso, chocolate, and steamed milk. It comes in many flavors, such as white chocolate mocha, crème Brule mocha, and many more. In this recipe, we have decided to go with a popular flavor, peppermint chocolate mocha.
How to make this Keto coffee at home?
Traditional mocha is made using espresso and steamed milk prepared in an espresso machine. But since most people don’t own espresso machines at home, we have come up with a simpler method. Blend together freshly brewed coffee, cocoa powder, cream, butter, coconut oil, vanilla extract, peppermint extract, and a pinch of salt in an immersion or high-speed blender until frothy. Use coconut milk if you don’t have cream. You can also add your favorite sugar-free sweetener if you’d like! Pour the low-carb drink into a mug, then top it with a pinch of salt and a dusting of cocoa powder.
Can you omit the salt?
Yes, definitely. However, we recommend decreasing the amount of salt instead of omitting it since salt brings out the flavor of chocolate and coffee. If you still can’t wrap your head around sweet and salty flavors together, then, by all means, omit it.
Step 1Brew 3-3.5 cups of fresh filter coffee. Alternatively, you can prepare the same amount of instant coffee. Pour it into a large jar.
Step 2Add the cocoa powder, cream, butter, vanilla extract, and coconut oil to the same jar with the coffee. Add the mint extract and any liquid sweetener you prefer. Steer away from granulated or powdered sweeteners as they might not dissolve well in this drink.
Step 3Using an immersion blender, blend the coffee mixture until frothy. Taste and adjust the flavors and sweetness if needed. If you don't have an immersion blender, you can prepare this recipe in a regular blender.
Step 4Pour the coffee into a mug. Top the drink with a pinch of salt and add cocoa powder if you’d like! Serve immediately.

If we’re making this with instant coffee, do we use water with the coffee or milk?

I’ve been doing Keto for a year and have lost 60lbs. I have not had much coffee during this time. I tried this coffee once a day for the past 3 days and I absolutely love. I have had intestinal issues for the last 3 days. Does anyone else have this problem?

There are certain coffees that upset my stomach, so I stick to swiss water processed decaf.. No problems

Congrats on your success! If you're not used to coconut oil, it can take a few days to get used to...tummy wise. Same with dairy. I have to use almond milk in my every day things, and I notice when I have dairy...again, tummy wise.

I’m nota coffee drinker, so I submitted with mint tea. Blending brought out the flavors. Yummy!

Love it. Didn’t have mint extract, so used almond. Didn’t use salt either. Felt like a real treat.

It's amazing and I love the salt going through it. It's very luxurious my favourite.

I want to love this recipe. What am I doing wrong? Those of you who love it, do you prefer your coffee unsweetened? I’ve tried to put a variety of sweeteners in it and it brings out such an odd flavor. Any advice is appreciated

She just says granulated might not mix. However powdered erythritol or allulose (easy to do with a bullet or food processor. I do a cup or two and keep it in an air right container) should mix easily. There's also a variety of sugar free coffee syrups you could could use. There's also drops made with stevia or monk fruit if you prefer natural. Amazon has a lot of choices.

I have it unsweetened and use bournville hot chocolate that is bitter anyway

I like it with or without sweetner. You probably just don’t like the combo of flavors.

Good I like it, I added Hershey’s cacao powder instead of cocoa powder, and grabbed the mint extract; tastes good

Meh. Just okay. I used Swerve as a sweetener. May be something better.

Absolutely LOVE this coffee!! I’m not a fan of the traditional bulletproof, so I wanted a nice twist that has a Christmas feel. This is it! Thumbs up

Maybe it was something I did but it was absolutely horrible. Which was a terrible let down as I'm trying to find a good mocha recipes that doesn't pack all the carbs. Might try this again just to make sure but I'm terribly disappointed.

A nice treat and super fast to prep. I'm normally a black coffee drinker but with the cocoa powder I had to hit it pretty hard with sweetener. I used actual mint leaf and it came out great!

Absolutely AMAZING!!!! My two favorite flavors chocolate and mint...I’m in heaven. This could be addicting. I feel like I’m cheating and I love that I can control the level of sweetness! Taylor made for me! 😈

Well, I’m not a coffee drinker but I do like the mocha frappe so I thought I would give this a try. First batch, too coffee flavored. Next time I will add a bit more cocoa and sweetener. If there is a next time.
