On these cold winter days, I love a warm peppermint treat. This Peppermint Mocha Protein Latte is the perfect beverage to warm you up, protein style!

The recipe is simple: coffee with chocolate and vanilla whey protein powders and a few drops of alcohol-free peppermint flavor. Although I’m not adding any milk here, the whey protein gives it the creamy latte feel. Of course, you can always add your favorite milk or cream.

I just got a Keurig, and I love the Donut Shop coffees. I’m also a fan of the Starbucks Via packets, as I’ve mentioned here before.

Notes
A note about substitutions: because each type of protein powder has a distinct flavor and texture, I would not try substituting different types of protein powders in this recipe.
