Once upon a time . . . a long time ago, I was addicted to coffee creamer. Seriously. At any given time I would have four or five different flavors in my refrigerator. I looked forward to coffee because of the creamer (true story)!
Then, my husband and I abruptly quit sugar for about 2 months or so, and that seemed to break my addiction! Now I much prefer to just have a splash of half and half in my coffee. I even drink it black . . . . on rare occasions.
But, a lot of my readers have said that coffee is one of the hardest things to make sugar free. And I hear you! I’ve been there. There is no shame in wanting something more than half and half in your morning drink.
Now I will admit, this flavor was not my first choice when I was buying the store bought varieties. I was much more into chocolate and caramel. (Coming soon!)
But, I’ve been working on a seasonal recipe . . . this Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer.
The first time I made it, I used some of my 3 Ingredient Sweetened Condensed Milk (which is also low carb and sugar free). It tasted great, but it turned out a bit strange after sitting in the refrigerator.
So the next time, I omitted the condensed milk and just used Gentle Sweet to sweeten it. Perfect! It was so good that I (briefly) considered sticking a straw in and drinking it! It made my afternoon cup of joe a delightful treat!
So, what do you need for this recipe?
1/2 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
3/4 Cup Half & Half
1/4 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
1/4 Cup Gentle Sweet (or your favorite powdered low carb sweetener)
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
1 Drop Peppermint Essential Oil (See notes below for how to use mint extract in place of essential oil.)

A rich and creamy peppermint mocha coffee creamer that is low carb, sugar free, and a Trim Healthy Mama S Fuel!
- 1/2 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
- 3/4 Cup Half & Half
- 1/4 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
- 1/4 Cup Gentle Sweet
- 2 Teaspoons Vanilla
- 1 Drop Peppermint Essential Oil (See notes below for how to use mint extract in place of essential oil.)
In a blender, add all ingredients and blend for 10-15 seconds to mix all ingredients together well.
If you do not have Gentle Sweet, you can use this DIY version.
You may notice a bit of foam on top of your creamer after blending. I just strained the foam off and stored the liquid creamer in my refrigerator.
If you do not have essential oil, or do not feel comfortable ingesting oils internally, I suggest using mint extract. I would start with 1/4 - 1/2 Teaspoon, then taste and adjust as necessary.
