PEPPERMINT MOCHA COLD BREW

INGREDIENTS

1 cup cold brew

8 coconut milk ice cubes

1/4 tsp peppermint syrup

2 Tbsp light chocolate syrup

1 Tbsp cocoa powder

DIRECTIONS

Pour your coconut milk (or any milk) into an ice cube tray - you'll need at least 8-10 - cover with plastic wrap and freeze. Add all ingredients to a blender and mix until well combined, adding an extra milk ice cube if needed. Taste and adjust flavors as needed. Serve immediately or chill/freeze for later. Whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and fresh mint make lovely toppings.

Note: You can use light coconut milk or other milk, but full-fat coconut will yield a creamier frappe. Plus, it's vegan friendly.
