Basic Frozen Mocha Recipe with Peppermint

A Frozen Mocha is always a nice pick me up! Top it with whipped cream, crushed peppermints and chocolate syrup for a sweet treat!

Confession: Nikolai loves coffee… but I’m not a fan of regular consumption for kiddos. On occasion, we allow him to have a cup of decaf coffee. But, he loves a Peppermint Mocha for a special treat!

For me, there’s something that doesn’t quite match with chocolate and mint combined. I never could get on board. Nevertheless, I love a good coffee drink, and this is a great recipe for your basic mocha.
