Low Carb Peppermint Tips and Treats

Colette's Blog

December 20, 2019

The holidays bring visions of candy canes hanging on a tree or passed out as a treat after visiting Santa. The flavors of peppermint are minty fresh and delicious, and there are many ways you can add peppermint to treats and drinks through the winter.

 To start, there’s nothing more comforting and warm (and naturally low carb) than a cup of peppermint tea. Peppermint tea can help satisfy your sweet tooth and even aids in digestion, plus it’s caffeine-free, so you can sip on a cup any time. It’s a great way to help you relax in the evening before bed. 

Peppermint oil may also help improve concentration and focus. Try a dab on your wrist, or, you can add a few drops to a diffuser, for a refreshing pick-me-up when you’re battling that mid-afternoon slump.

 If you’re still looking for the perfect stocking stuffer, or you’re just craving a peppermint treat (minus all the sugar in that little candy cane), try Atkins’ Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Patties, for the perfect pop of peppermint and dark chocolate, at 2 grams of Net Carbs.

 And, last but not least, these low carb peppermint drink and treat recipes are the perfect addition holiday gatherings:

 Peppermint Eggnog Martini

You can turn this festive, fun drink into a mocktail simply by omitting the vodka.

Iced Peppermint Mocha

Thanks to the Atkins Mocha Latte Shake, you get a nice boost of more than 15 grams of protein, without the sugar of a typical blended coffee drink.

 Peppermint-Chocolate Truffles

These rich truffles can be served (and eaten) immediately, or you can refrigerate them for up to five days.

 Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes

These holiday cupcakes are sure to be a hit, with green or red frosting and a sprinkling of sugar-free peppermint candies.
