Chocolate Peanut Butter Iced Coffee!

Last week, I finally ordered PB2, a powdered peanut butter that I've had my eye on for nearly two years. I had an Amazon gift card itching to be used, so I figured I'd buy some healthy snacks. I snagged both the regular PB2 and the Chocolate version. 

I decided to try PB2 because when I consume peanut butter, its always more than one serving. Seeing as its pretty high in fat and sugar, I haven't had it in ages. In a nutshell (no pun intended), PB2 is low-fat peanut butter that you make as you need. Since I got the jars last week, I've used the chocolate peanut butter the most, but they're both equally delicious. I've had it at least twice per day, with apples or just eaten out of a dish. For 45 calories per serving, you can't really go wrong. 

Last night, I had an epiphany. As I noshed on my post run snack (two small granny smith apples and a serving of Chocolate PB2), my inner fat child needed a second serving to finish with my apple. After I finished my apple, I had most of the PB2 left in the bowl. As I took a sip of my iced coffee, to wash the peanut butter down, I realized that these two beauties would make a killer combo! So, after experimenting last night, here is my recipe. Its healthier than using sugary syrups, which are empty calories. The PB2 adds some nutritional value to your iced coffee.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Iced Coffee
2 tbsp Chocolate Peanut Butter PB2, mixed with 1 tbsp room temperature water
12 ounces iced coffee with your choice of milk (whatever coffee to milk ratio you prefer, just have 12 ounces of both liquids)

Or, if you are too lazy to make your own iced coffee...

A16 ounce iced coffee from your local coffee shop will work - the ice takes up a decent portion of the cup, which is why I am telling you to go for the 16 ounce drink.

Step 1:
In a bowl, combine the PB2 and water. Stir until there are no lumps. 

Step 2:
Combine iced coffee, milk, and ice. Give a quick stir. If you bought your iced coffee, step two was done for you by a precious barista - make sure you tip them and say thank you!

Step 3:
Pour PB2 into iced coffee and stir.

Step 4:
Drink, and thank the heavens for my inner fat child creating this delicious concoction.

If you feel that this isn't sweet enough, then mix some more PB2 with water, then add it to your iced coffee. I'm going to make a drink with the plain PB2 tonight. I'm sure it will be delicious!


  1. You seriously have the best recipes. I haven't heard of PB2, but that looks and sounds divine!

  2. Never heard of such a thing! I don't care too much for peanut butter, but my BF is obsessed with the chocolate/peanut butter combo! I guess I should try this for him! Very cool to know about it!

  3. his drink is just one of the reasons for the long lines that often file out the door. (That, and the fact that Andytown packs in a coffee shop, coffee maker roastery and bakery all within its 600 square foot shop!) Don't skip on the Northern Irish soda bread and scones. Added bonus: it's just a few blocks from Ocean Beach.

  6. After that it didn't take long and everyone in Arabia was drinking coffee. Everywhere these people traveled the coffee went with them. coffee dye hair

  7. To start with, I needed a great coffee grinder. My research showed that grinding fresh as you go is the best. The one I got is great because you can choose the type of brew, size of grind and how many cups.Coffee grinders

  8. Coffee is strong and should be drunk from a vessel that showcases its strength. Of course if you overdo the whole macho thing, you come off as a fool, but in moderation it looks pretty cool.insulated mug

  9. Then, at that point, with the appearance of Starbucks and other business coffee chains, the "Second wave" of coffee people developed. Individuals turned out to be more mindful of what they were drinking and the pattern of takeaway coffee based beverages like lattes and cappuccinos began. davidoff coffee
