Healthy Post-Holiday Peppermint Mocha

Let’s face it, we’ve probably all gained a few extra pounds this holiday season. That doesn’t mean we have to diet or overly restrict our calorie intake when the new year arrives. Simply eating as we did before the holidays is enough to help us shed that extra weight. The one thing I refuse to give up when I return to pre-holiday, ‘normal’ eating, is the peppermint mocha. I am a sucker for the one from Starbucks, topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings – containing 47 grams of sugar! That’s why I found this recipe for a healthy post-holiday peppermint mocha. It satisfies my sweet tooth and only has 5 grams of sugar!
