Healthier Starbucks Peppermint Mocha
Anyone else craving a Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks? It is already 40 degrees here in Vermont and I am ready to get my hands on that Christmas in a cup, but I am not looking forward to all the sugar. 54g of sugar and 440 calories for a Grande with Whip Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks?!? No, thank you. Even a tall without whip and almond milk (aka a skinny Starbucks Peppermint Mocha) is 21g of sugar and 150 calories. So how can we make this holiday classic a little healthier? Or maybe even make a homemade DIY one using Peppermint Mocha Shakeology!
This superfood drink has only 150 calories and 6g of sugar plus 16 grams of protein,12g of fiber, probiotics, phytonutrients, adaptogens, and omega-3's. Basically a protein shake and multivitamin had a baby that tastes like candy canes dipped in chocolate!
I know, you are jumping up and down in your beanie and scarf over this, but I didn't even tell you the best part... it is THE SAME PRICE as a Grande Starbucks Latte. YUP! You heard me - only $5.28 for Peppermint Mocha Shakeology which is the same as a grande latte Starbucks, but without the long waits and barrels of sugar.
You can grab your Peppermint Mocha Shakeology here starting November 1st while supplies last! Limit 5 boxes per order because we are crazy and it will sell out fast!
While you wait for your Peppermint Mocha Shakeology in the mail, here is how to order a Starbucks slightly healthier AND how to make a DIY one at home.
