Peppermint Mocha Protein Shake

Peppermint mocha protein shake

Peppermint mochas… this time of year you can find them everywhere from Starbucks to McDonald’s. 

And they’re not exactly a healthy way to start the day.

This Peppermint Mocha Protein Shake recipe from my AHealthierU app delivers all the pepperminty, chocolatey goodness of a peppermint mocha frappuccino using healthy ingredients.


  • 1 cup of your choice of milk 
  • 1 scoop of plant based chocolate protein powder (opt for a protein powder that is organic with close to 0g of sugar) 
  • A splash of peppermint extract 
  • 1/4 cup of ice 

Optional Sugary Garnish: 2 tbsp Reddi Whip Coconut Whip Cream (10 calories per serving and 1g of sugar per serving) and one crushed peppermint candy sprinkled on top


  1. Blend ingredients until smooth 
  2. Serve cold and enjoy
