Keto Peppermint Mocha Ingredients
Coffee – I like to brew a really strong cup of coffee for this recipe, strong and hot!
Peppermint extract – Make sure you’re using peppermint extract from the baking aisle and not peppermint oils. They are very different things.
Chocolate creamer – We used Omega PowerCreamer’s Cacao flavored keto compliant coffee creamer for this and it’s perfection.
How Do You Make Keto Peppermint Mocha
First brew a strong cup of coffee. (Sometimes I like to mix things up by brewing a cup of naturally flavored coffee like hazelnut.)
Next add your peppermint extract, and then your chocolate or cacao flavored creamer.
Finally, blend with your upright blender or an immersion blender until frothy.
Omega PowerCreamer in Keto Peppermint Mocha
Omega PowerCreamer is a keto compliant coffee creamer that provides high quality fats to your morning coffee.
The easy to use, All-in-1, blendable creamer gives you the same great benefits of Keto Coffee without the mess and hassle.
PowerCreamer was designed to make it super convenient and great for when you’re on-the-go. Just pour in, blend up, and enjoy. Now in 4 flavors – Original, Vanilla, Cacao, and Cinnamon.
We’re using the cacao flavored creamer in our Keto Peppermint mocha and it’s made up of just a few simple ingredients: Grassfed Ghee, Organic Coconut Oil, MCT Oil (Medium-Chain Triglycerides), Organic Raw Cacao Powder, Sunflower Lecithin.

Here’s a fun hint – you can use the Omega PowerCreamers in recipes too. Add the cinnamon, cacao, and vanilla to keto desserts, and use the original blend in place of oils or butter. Or just make lots of fun keto coffees!

What is Keto
Keto refers to the ketogenic diet. A keto diet is low in carbohydrates and high in fats. It causes the body to produce ketones in the liver to be used as energy.
It’s referred to as many different names – ketogenic diet, low carb diet, low carb high fat (LCHF), etc. When you eat something high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin.
Keto Peppermint Mocha – Tools
Really the only tools you need to make this keto peppermint mocha are a coffee maker and a blender. I’ll share the ones I have and love below!
Single Cup Brewer – I’m the only regular coffee drinker in our home, so the single brewer definitely gets the most use.
Traditional Coffee Maker We always keep a traditional coffee maker handy so we can brew a full pot for guests too.
Upright Blender – When I’m making a large batch of the Keto Peppermint Mocha, I’ll use my upright blender.
Immersion Blender – The immersion blender is perfect for single cups of keto coffee. Don’t try to blend it directly in the coffee mug though, you’ll make a mess!
Omega Cacao PowerCreamer – This is the secret ingredient to making the perfect Keto Peppermint Mocha!
