There’s nothing better than putting on your coziest socks, curling up with a blanket and making a warm mug of a holiday-inspired drink when the weather gets cold.
Today I wanted to share my current obsession which is a vegan peppermint mocha. It’s perfect for the holiday season and I hope you love it as much as I do!
This post is in collaboration with the Philips 3100 espresso machine. This machine makes creating amazing beverages super easy. I love that you just pour in the coffee beans, press a button and in a minute you can have a hot, café-worthy drink right in your own kitchen.
The coffeemaker has 5 preset drink settings, which means I can switch it up and make something new every day of the week so I never get bored. The grinders are 100% pure ceramic which are extremely hard and precise, and guarantees fresh aromatic coffee for at least 20,000 cups. To put that in perspective, that means you could have 2 cups of coffee a day for the next 26 years! The Philips 3100 also comes with a milk carafe, so you can make all kinds of milk-based beverages. The carafe froths the milk twice, then pours a splash free creamy layer into your cup at just the right temperature. It can also be stored conveniently in your fridge.
Lastly, I love how the spout is adjustable to fit every mug. I am a mug collector which means I have mugs in all shapes and sizes and I love that it’s easy to fit the machine for every new mug.
