This Skinny Peppermint Mocha is a delicious, calorie-wise version of the Starbucks holiday coffee drink complete with candy canes, whipped cream and mint syrup!

Step 1 Make the mint syrup by mixing together boiling water, sugar and mint extract. Set aside - this syrup will last up to a month in the fridge so you can enjoy a skinny peppermint mocha all December long!

Step 2  Add milk, cocoa powder and mint syrup to a mug, then microwave 1-2 minutes (will depend on the power of your microwave and how hot you want your mocha). Stir well before and after microwaving.

Step  While milk mixture is in microwave, brew 2 espresso shots and add them to the milk mixture

Step 4 Top with whipped cream and crushed candy canes (both optional toppings), then serve and enjoy!
