Peppermint Crème Coffee, a combination of refreshing peppermint and sweet cream create the perfect holiday treat!
This is a food find I have to give credit to my friend Justine for as she was the one who found it at Fresh Market.
Last week I got an email that said I HAD to try this coffee and she had brought some into the office to brew. I took my behind right down to the third floor, looked at her and she pointed to the break room. I got in there and three pots were full of coffee. Hmm…this would come down to the sniff test. Would I even be able to tell? I sniffed the first, hmm…doesn’t smell like anything special. Sniffed the second. EW! Work sludge (the facilities manager at work doesn’t drink coffee) and the third…..
Peppermint Crème heaven. It almost cleared my sinuses. Granted, I love peppermint in all forms but this is one of the best. They must put peppermint oil right in with good quality coffee. Drink this and you’ll think Christmas!
Don’t have access to Peppermint Crème Coffee? Try purchasing a high quality coffee and adding a few drops of organic peppermint oil.
Peppermint oil has many benefits:
- Freshens bad breath
- Relieves digestive issues
- Has antimicrobial properties
- Cools the body
- Helps to clear the lungs of congestion
What to look for:
I prefer a certified organic brand, but there are many high quality therapeutic grade brands out there as well. Look for oils sold in dark bottles that are 100% pure. No fillers. The line of oils should have different prices. Cheaper isn’t always better. Smell the oil. Does it smell like peppermint? Or something else. Use common sense!
Peppermint oil is powerful. A few drops goes a long way. Add some to a diffuser to clear congestion or mix a few drops in a carrier oil to rub on the bottom of your feet. If you’re adding it to coffee, one to two drops is plenty.
