If you are ever tempted by the blended concoctions at coffeehouses (which are loaded with empty calories that make your blood sugar spike and then crash) the recipe in this blog is a must-try. It’s perfect for days you want a little boost of energy to tackle a project or a workout – or you just want a healthy snack that tastes like an indulgent treat!
Chocolate-Peanut Butter Iced Latte Recipe
This recipe doesn’t disappoint! It features coffee … chocolate … and PEANUT BUTTER! (Plus it also contains plenty of fiber, healthy fats, potassium, and antioxidants.) It’s a smoothie that’s actually good for you. Note: because it contains caffeine, you’ll want to have this earlier in the day vs. later.
8 ounces of cooled coffee
½ small banana, sliced
½ cup almond (or any nut) milk
½ tbsp raw cacao powder
1-2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp raw honey
1 tbsp natural peanut butter
1 cup ice cubes
Optional: to make this smoothie thicker, soak the chia seeds in the almond milk for at least 20-30 minutes (and up to overnight) before blending.
Place all the ingredients except the ice cubes in a blender, and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust the amount of honey or cacao powder to suit your taste. Pour it into a tall glass (over ice is optional) and enjoy!
Pretty simple, right? You definitely have to give it a try and let our San Jose personal trainers know how you like it! Happy sipping 🙂
