Coconut-Mocha Iced Coffee

Your local coffee shop is in for some competition. Their clever beverages may be crave-worthy, but chances are those irresistible flavors are created with chemical ingredients. Give the baristas a break and stir up your own creamy, chocolaty iced concoction with pure coconut milk, raw cacao and a pinch of peppermint. You’ll get your caffeine fix and your chocolate fix using only the most nutritious, whole and healthy foods. A can’s worth of coconut-milk “creamer” is made, giving you enough extras to brew up more throughout the week.
