  • scant 1/4 tsp natural peppermint extract*
  • 2 Tbsp light chocolate syrup
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa powder

Instructions

  1. The night before prepare your coffee and chill it in the fridge so it's cold in the morning. Also 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.
  2. In the morning 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.
  3. Serve immediately or chill/freeze for later. Whipped cream, chocolate syrup and fresh mint make lovely toppings.
