Sometimes a recipe sneaks up on you that makes you think, "How did I not think of that myself?" This is such a recipe. I came across it while cruisin' pinterest and knew I had to have it... like immediately. So I went in the kitchen and got to work whipping up this delicious cold, frothy drink. Which in my opinion could outdo one of those fancy $4 coffee drinks any day.
This recipe comes from Sarah over at Baking Serendipity. She used vanilla almond milk which I don't drink. I get the original plain flavor which isn't as sweet or have a vanilla flavor to it. To balance it out I had to add more sugar than I probably would have if I'd used the sweeter vanilla almond milk. Regardless though, I don't think it made that much of a difference. You could even use regular cows milk. Almond milk just adds a little bit of extra nuttiness to the flavor but not enough that if you used plain milk it would drastically change the end result. Besides, with the peanut butter you put in, your wouldn't notice you were missing almond milk.
- 1 1/2 c. black coffee, cold
- 1/2 c. almond milk or regular milk
- 1 TBSP peanut butter
- sugar/sweetener, to taste
- Combine coffee, milk and peanut butter in a blender. Blend until smooth. Stir in sweetener and serve immediately.
