Peppermint Hot Chocolate
2 1/2 Tbsp. unsweeted cocoa powder
1 1.2 Tbsp. sugar or other sweetener
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup canned coconut milk (shake before opening)
1 1/2 cups milk (almond or rice milk work too)
1-2 drops Peppermint essential oil
In a saucepan, mix together the cocoa powder, salt, and sugar. Add coconut milk, and heat until combined. Slowly add milk while continuing to stir. Keep stirring until little bubbles start to form on the surface. Remove from heat. Allow to cool slightly. Stir in a drop or two of peppermint essential oil. Pour into mugs and serve! Try topping with whipped cream, marshmallows, chocolate chips, chocolate syrup or ground peppermint candy.
2 cups Apple juice
1 cup Cranberry juice
3 drops Wild Orange essential oil

Frozen Mint Mocha
3 cups coffee
1 cup milk
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 drops Peppermint essential oil
2 frozen bananas sliced
3 dozen ice cubes

Spiced Apple Cider
5 red apples
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 Tbsp. ground allspice

Wash apples thoroughly, remove the cores, and cut them into quarters. Place apples in a large stock pot, and add sugar and allspice. Add enough water to the pot to cover the apples by 3-4 inches. Boil the apples, uncovered, for one hour, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat, simmer for two hours. Strain the cider by pouring the mixture through a fine mesh sieve. Stir in Cinnamon essential oil. Serve cider warm, or refrigerate and serve chilled.
