Next to Pumpkin Spice a Peppermint Mocha Latte has to be one of my favorites. I mean chocolate and mint make for an amazing combination. And most often it also reminds me of the Christmas holiday season.

I love a good Starbucks latte, but the syrup they use is full of sugar and let’s face it the cost is a drain on the budget as well. Making my coffee drinks at home has saved me money but also has allowed me to add in protein. I struggle often to up my protein intake so it’s a total win.
WHAT IS Weight Watchers?
When starting a new weight loss program or diet change, consult a doctor or physician about personal health concerns. It is a good idea to have blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and hormones checked at a physical before and during being on the WW program.
New to Weight Watchers?? Also known as WW, a weight loss program uses points assigned to food to track and lose weight. When you sign up, you take an assessment that will assign you a point value to eat daily and a weekly allowance. You can carry over 4 points from the day into your weekly budget, which is handy when you need more points.
I have been on Weight Watchers since 2011. They have had Points Plus Value, WW Smartpoints, Blue Plan, Green Plan, Purple Plan, WW Personal Points, and now Weight Watchers Points. The new Weight Watchers Simplified plan is the new program launched in November 2022, similar to previous plans like WW Smartpoints, with some color plans. ( You can see the Weight Watchers Zero Point Foods 2023 -> here)
No matter the WW plan, they work to help you learn healthy eating habits. I have hit lifetime goal weight several times but stopped operating the plan and tracking, so the weight does creep back on.
Right now, you can head on over -> here and sign up for WW for $10 a month for your first six months.
skinny peppermint mocha ingredients
Jordan Skinny Syrup Mocha– You can use any brand of sugar-free syrup that is mocha, but use your calculator to verify it is zero points.
Skinny Syrup Peppermint– I had a peppermint bark skinny syrup, but any peppermint
Chocolate Protein– I used a ready-to-drink protein but you can use a protein powder. I am not a morning fan, the carton protein shakes are my go-to.
Fat-Free Whipped Topping– The whipped topping can affect the calorie and Weight Watchers points to your latte, so double-check the nutritional information.
Chocolate Sprinkles– This is optional but made for a fun-looking drink.
how to make peppermint mocha
Start out by starting up your coffee maker or espresso maker to brew if needed. I chose to use my Keruirg for this one, but the other options work great.
I used a clear Venti Starbucks cup, but any large cup will work. I have a thing for Starbucks cups so it’s always my go-to.
Pour or pump your Skinny Mocha Syrup and Skinny Peppermint Syrup into your cup; I did four pumps of each syrup. The bottles of Skinny Syrup do not come with the pumps, but they have the syrup pumps on Amazon. (See them-> here) We use the fruit syrups on our Red Bull Drinks as well.
Mix the syrup and protein shake together with a frother or whisk while your coffee brews. The milk frother makes the protein shake foam up a bit as it mixes up the coffee and protein shake but will settle down once the coffee is added and it sets. .
Pour the coffee or espresso into the protein shake and use the frother to mix it again.
Add in ice or enjoy as is. I wait to add ice till this step so it melts less when the coffee is added; if your protein shake is cold, it will immediately lower the coffee temperature.
Optional topping with whipped topping and sprinkles. I did not track the sprinkles as it was such a small amount, and the amount of topping I used was 0 points.
