This keto-friendly bulletproof peppermint mocha recipe is perfect for a chilly day! Ready in just 10 minutes, this delicious and festive drink is full of flavor and low in net carbs. The recipe is nut-free, so if you’re looking for an allergy-friendly Starbucks copycat recipe, you will love this one!



  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, simmer heavy cream until bubbling.
  2. Transfer heated cream to blender, add all remaining ingredients, and pulse until frothy. Pour into coffee mugs and enjoy hot.

Recipe Notes:

Powdered Monk Fruit Sweetener Substitution: Classic Monk Fruit Sweetener, Golden Monk Fruit Sweetener, erythritol, or Swerve can be subbed in here at a 1:1 ratio. If you use any of these granulated sweeteners, I would suggest pulsing it in a food processor to powder it, although this isn’t essential. Liquid stevia or powdered stevia should work here, but because every brand of stevia is quite different, I cannot make suggestions on exactly how much you should use. If you decide to use stevia, especially if it’s pure stevia, start with a very small amount, taste test, and then add more based on your taste preference.

MCT Oil Powder Substitution: You can use liquid MCT oil if you prefer here. If you haven’t used this ingredient in liquid form before, start very small; I’d say about 1/2 tsp liquid MCT oil (too much can cause gastrointestinal distress, especially if you’ve never had it before). You can also altogether omit this ingredient and, if you do, the recipe will then be coconut-free.

Peppermint Extract Substitution: You can simply omit the peppermint extract in this recipe if you don’t want it. Alternatively, you can add a different flavoring, like chocolate extract or even raspberry extract or strawberry extract!

Unsalted Butter Substitution: You can omit the butter if you don’t have any or don’t want to use it. It’s not essential to the recipe working, though it does provide extra fat content that can help to keep you fuller for longer.

Collagen Powder Substitution: You can altogether omit the collagen powder from this drink if you do not want to use it; however, note that blending the collagen into the drink helps to ensure it is frothy and creamy. If you have unflavored protein powder, that should work, too. If you only have sweetened and/or flavored protein powder, I would not suggest using it or, if you do decide to include it, omit the sweetener that the recipe calls for, blend, taste test, and then add sweetener as desired.

Net Carbs: Each serving of this recipe contains 4.8 grams of net carbs.

Storage: This is a recipe that is best enjoyed hot and fresh; however, if you’d like to prepare a few batches in advance, store the blended drink in an airtight glass jar in the refrigerator and drink within 3 days. To re-heat, pour prepared drink into a small pot and cook over medium heat until warmed, about 3-5 minutes, whisking regularly.
