If you're anything like me, you love coffee of all varieties. I like it dark, light, in a frappuccino- heck, I even drink it black from time to time.
With the holidays approaching and the air becoming cold and crisp, there's nothing like a drink that's warm in flavors as well as temperature.
With the added pumpkin pie seasoning, this vegan cafe latte warms the body and soul!
People love putting high-fat items into their coffee such as heavy cream and butter. Sure, they probably make the coffee taste pretty good, but the saturated fat, cholesterol, and hormones in these animal products (not to mention the cruelty) make them something you probably want to avoid. If you want to enjoy a high-fat and satisfying coffee in the morning then why not try peanut butter coffee?
You can drink this coffee as your a light breakfast, snack, or even a dessert. It's filling, but not so much so that you'll feel sluggish after.
We really think you'll like it. It's got:
Healthy fats from peanut butter
Warmth from pumpkin pie seasoning
Foam & froth
A relaxing sip with an energetic feel
If you don't have a machine to froth the soy milk, it's still great without it.
You can also use an immersion blender to froth coffee.
Just blending the peanut butter with the coffee creates a foamy finish, as pictured below:
Hope you enjoy this recipe and we know it seems odd. Don't knock it until you've tried it!
You can create this coffee in a few minutes so it's great if you're walking out the door. It will stay good all day at work if you use a heat-preserving thermos. We like to enjoy it on the weekends out of a nice cup!
- 8 oz brewed coffee (can also use 4 oz and half the recipe)
- 1 tsp tsp of sugar or sweetener of choice (stevia drops also work)
- 2 tsp creamy natural peanut butter (unsalted)
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice seasoning (or plain cinnamon)
- 1 tiny drop pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup soy milk (used for frothing) (optional)
Brew an 8 oz cup of coffee or you can brew a 4 oz cup and half the rest of the recipe.
Add the coffee to heat a friendly blender.
Add the remainder of the ingredients besides for the soy milk.
Do a quick pulse and check if contents are fully blended. Over blending will result in too much froth, so be sure to only blend a little bit at a time.
Pour the finished product into your favorite cup. You can enjoy just like this or proceed to step 6 if you want extra creaminess or a latte vibe.
If you have a milk frother, froth a small amount of soy milk to top off the coffee.
