This has to be the healthiest peppermint mocha you'll ever find. Not only is it sweetened with dates only, but this drink is also blended with cashews for a frothy milk-free finish. The cashews make it perfectly creamy without the milk, plus they add a good dose of healthy fats. Add some unsweetened cocoa powder and a drop of peppermint extract and you've got yourself a delicious healthy holiday dink.

  1. Blend all the ingredients for 30 seconds in a high-speed blender until creamy.

Notes

If your blender is on the weaker side, try straining it using a nut milk bag. If using a strong blender, such as Vitamix or Blendtec, you shouldn't have any pieces of cashews left. Adjust the cocoa powder, dates and peppermint extract to taste.
