Peppermint Mocha Latte

Peppermint Mocha Latte {Starbucks Copycat}

One of my favorite drinks to get during the holidays is a peppermint mocha latte.  This drink takes like Christmas in a cup and is so good! After making a mocha latte earlier this year, I knew all that I had to do to make this peppermint version was to add a bit of peppermint simple syrup to it and give it some fun holiday garnish like red sprinkles, chopped candy canes, or a drizzle of chocolate syrup.  Another thing you can do to take your latte to the next level is make homemade peppermint whipped cream to top it with but if not, normal whipped cream is totally fine.

Common Questions About Making a Mocha Latte

What is a peppermint mocha latte made of?

A peppermint mocha latte is made of espresso, milk, mocha syrup, peppermint syrup, and whipped cream. 

Can a peppermint mocha be made vegan?

While it may not be listed as vegan in the recipe, it can be made vegan with some simple swaps.

  1. Swap dairy milk for your favorite dairy alternatives such as soy, oat, or almond milk.
  2. Check that your mocha syrup is vegan! It should be as the main ingredients are usually sugar, corn syrup, and cocoa powder but it’s worth confirming.
  3. Sub out the whipped cream for a vegan whipped cream made with something like coconut milk! You can either make it at home or buy it in a can from most grocery stores.

Where can I get mocha syrup?

Most grocery stores should carry it in the area by the coffee department with all of the drink/dessert sauces and syrups.  There is a Starbucks branded version you can use or a few other varieties.  If you can find any that are specifically for a “mocha”, you can instead just use chocolate syrup.  They are essentially the same thing.  Click HERE for my homemade recipe.
