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 ¼ caf (not even ½ caf) coffee, in yet another saga to calm down my caffeine tolerance.
Spoiler alert: this recipe calls for DOUBLE STRENGTH coffee.
What makes this chocolate peanut butter latte delicious & healthy
- double strength coffee or espresso
- unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- powdered peanut butter
- cocoa powder
- stevia, or preferred sweetener/alternative
- natural peanut butter (the runny kind, optional)
- chocolate syrup (optional)
How to make this latte
Start by preparing ½ cup of double strength coffee or espresso. Add to a coffee mug with 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons powdered peanut butter, and 6-8 drops of liquid stevia (or about 2 teaspoons of preferred sweetener/alternative) Stir until combined.
Heat ¾ cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk in a microwave safe jar with removable lid for 30 seconds, or until heated through. Replace lid, and shake for 30 seconds to froth, or alternatively use milk frother. Pour milk into coffee, and drizzle with natural peanut butter and chocolate sauce if desired. (will no longer be sugar-free)
- Is also delicious iced! Just let coffee cool, add ice, and cold almond milk.
- Homemade whipped cream on top is also delicious if not strictly dairy-free. Can also use coconut whip for non-dairy.
I can't find powdered peanut butter. Can I use regular peanut butter?
Technically, yes. It won't blend as easily, and will definitely impact the nutrition/calories. I would use 1 tablespoon of natural peanut butter, warmed up in the microwave for a few seconds until runny before mixing with coffee. Using a hand blender or regular blender would be helpful for making sure it's mixed through.
Is this vegan?
As long as you are using a non-dairy milk, yes. Adding chocolate sauce to the top could alter if it is completely dairy-free or not, so make sure to check the label if adding that optional ingredient.
Money-Saving Tips for this Chocolate Peanut Butter Latte:
- Buy in bulk. If you use the powdered peanut butter, opt for a canister rather than the single-serve packets to get more for your money.
- Opt for refrigerated. I find the refrigerated almond milk tends to be less expensive, and less ingredients than the shelf-stable options.
