This Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Latte Recipe is a treat for all coffee and peanut butter lovers! Made with no dairy and no added sugar.
It’s funny, at the time I’m posting this, I’m spending my morning sipping on some 1/4 caf (not even 1/2 caf) coffee, in yet another saga to calm down my caffeine tolerance.
Spoiler alert: this recipe calls for DOUBLE STRENGTH coffee.
Double strength decaf is a thing, right?
But come on folks, there’s peanut butter in here. Exception granted.
I’ve been meaning to put this latte into action for quite sometime, and am now just getting to it after getting to try out some of the powdered peanut butter varieties from the crazy good Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter. (they didn’t pay me to write this, I just really love good peanut butter) Putting my favorite foods together and making them work is kinda my prerogative. Coffee and peanut butter, you my people.
The best part, you don’t even need any fancy equipment. Now I am all for kitchen gadgets, and my cabinets, closets, pantries, and hidden alcoves can vouch for me. Not having to add an espresso machine to the madness is more than welcome.
- I used powdered peanut butter since it mixes much easier than regular peanut butter. It also adds a lot more flavor without having to add A TON of pb, and thus making this drink a calorie bomb.
- If you can’t find powdered peanut butter, regular pb can be used, but will not yield the same exact results. Heat at least 2 tablespoons of peanut in a microwave-safe bowl for 20-30 seconds, until liquid. Mix in with coffee as listed in recipe.
- If you like your lattes a little less sweet, you can use unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead.
- Want it a little more indulgent? Crumble up peanut butter cups, and sprinkle on top.
- ½ cup double strength coffee
- ¾ cup sweetened vanilla almond milk
- 2 tablespoons powdered peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 6-8 drops vanilla liquid stevia*
- ½ tablespoon natural peanut butter
- chocolate sauce (optional)
- In a large coffee mug, add prepared coffee, cocoa powder, powdered peanut butter, and liquid stevia or sweetener.
- In a glass jar with removable lid, add almond milk.
- Heat in microwave without lid on for 30 seconds, or until milk is warmed.
- Replace lid, and shake until foamy.
- Pour milk into coffee mixture.
- Drizzle with peanut butter and chocolate sauce if using.
