Peanut Butter Chocolate Coffee Smoothie–Breakfast and Coffee in one!

You may be very surprised by the combo of coffee and peanut butter. I was when I had a friend order a peanut butter mocha at the coffee shop. A what?! But it is SO DELICIOUS!

If you love peanut butter and chocolate then you will love the addition of the coffee! Simple, smooth and creamy– a breakfast that will fill you up AND put a pep in your step!

Whether it’s a cold brew, strong brewed coffee or even a couple espresso shots–coffee makes for a delicious smoothie!

Love the flavor of coffee? Try these Vanilla Cold Brew Coffee Overnight Oats, Homemade Mocha Frappuccino, or perhaps these Easy Mocha Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Frosting!

Why You Will Love This Peanut Butter Coffee Smoothie Recipe:

  • It’s super easy to make. This peanut butter cold brew smoothie is a matter of tossing everything in the blender and blending. From there, grab a straw and enjoy your creamy smoothie!
  • Can easily be varied. Lots of ways to make this coffee banana smoothie your own! Use regular dairy milk or plant based milk. Add some spinach or greens. Use decaf or regular coffee–lots of options!
  • Thick, creamy and with a kick of caffeine! This is our favorite early morning smoothie because of the coffee for sure. A bit of protein and a bit of caffeine–way to start your day!

Recipe Ingredients:

  • strong cold brewed coffee: the stronger the better in my opinion. There are a lot of ready to go cold brews at the grocery now, but there is nothing like fresh brewed. I assume a couple shots of espresso would be wildly amazing as well in this but we love the ease of cold brew coffee!
  • banana: frozen fruit makes for the coldest, thickest smoothies so make sure your banana has been in the freezer. You also want the ripe bananas before freezing for the best flavor. This will make for a nice sweet touch.
  • cocoa powder: unsweetened, regular cocoa powder will work just fine, no need to use sweetened unless you prefer the extra sweetness. Dark cocoa powder will also work if you like a bit more bitterness in your chocolate flavor.
  • vanilla yogurt: some smoothies I do all milk but I went with part milk and part yogurt for extra thick creaminess. Feel free to use a dairy free yogurt if desired.
  • peanut butter: use peanut butter you have on hand. No need to grab anything out of the ordinary! If you have a peanut allergy, your favorite nut butter or seed butter will work as well; almond butter, cashew butter, etc.
  • milk: use your favorite. We always have unsweetened vanilla almond milk and whole milk in the house so whatever I can grab wins! Regular milk, dairy free milk, use what you love, oat milk, coconut milk, soy milk, etc.
  • sweetener: sweeten to taste. I prefer maple syrup or medjool dates. The dates can add a touch of thickness.
  • you can add a splash of vanilla extract for more flavor, but that is optional!

How To make IT:

  • As far as whipping up this peanut butter coffee smoothie, it doesn’t take much. Add the milk and the coffee and then add in all the other ingredients on top in a high-speed blender.
  • Blend until smooth. If it seems a bit thin, you can add a touch more frozen banana or a couple ice cubes. If it’s too thick, add a little extra milk, a tablespoon or two at a time.
  • Add a dollop of whipped cream if you want to go true mocha style, like fresh from the coffee shop! A drizzle of chocolate syrup would be amazing as well!

Recipe Tips

  • You can make this peanut butter coffee smoothie vegan using a dairy free yogurt and dairy free milk. There are actually so many vegan yogurts out there these days so you have so many options to choose from really. Let me know your favorite dairy free yogurt!
  • Give your smoothie a protein boost–add a scoop of your favorite protein powder. You can also add some chia seeds into the mix if desired. I have tried with both vanilla protein powder or chocolate and they are both amazing!
  • Looking to make this banana free? If you want to skip the banana, an avocado is a really great swap. The flavor will obviously be different, but an avocado will add bulk and thickness to it. You can also freeze your avocado to make the smoothie cooler and all the thicker.

*the stronger or more concentrated the coffee is, the better. Also as long as it’s not hot, you are fine. You could use espresso shots but you will want to add a bit more liquid to balance it out.

    I’ve had difficulty finding a coffee smoothie that tastes really good. This I really like the flavor of this recipe. I think I will omit the maple syrup next time as it was a bit too sweet for me. Mine was a little too thin. I threw in a handful of spinach, which didn’t seem to alter flavor, and added vegetable benefits. I might also explore using PB2 powder instead of jar peanut butter. Definitely adding this to my smoothie recipes.

    I don’t have coffee at home becausewe are not regular coffee drinkers. What should I use? Can you substitute espresso powder instead of coffee?

    1. Lorie says:

      Hi! You could. You will want to stir it in hot water to make for the liquid part you would use for coffee but that would still work great!

    Just made this for breakfast, I used plant based vanilla yogurt, oats milk, and I mixed 1t of coffee in 1/4 cup of warm water, the frozen banana made this smoothie cool and creamy. A perfect blend! I tried other coffee smoothie recipes but this one is the best.
    I didn’t add any sweeteners since the milk, yogurt and banana had sugars.

      So happy you loved it, Silvia! I just made it last week and need to much more often!
