During the winter holidays, I love to sip a hot drink while I work or relax. It can be hard to find a good coffee or hot cocoa that complies with the paleo diet. I love creating my own holiday recipes, and I LOVE coffee, chocolate, and mint. So what better way to enjoy all three than to make a peppermint mocha?! Here is the recipe!
