I’ve been straight up obsessed with this peanut butter & honey latte for weeks.
It all started with a trip to Stumbeanos, one of my favorite Fargo coffee shops. The shop had just opened, and I was the first customer, having come early to meet a friend. I recognized the barista as the owner, and I asked him what seasonal drinks they had come up with. He began describing a peanut butter & honey latte, and I ordered it immediately.
One sip, and I was in love. I knew I had to recreate it at home.
Note: I’m aware that peanut butter isn’t strict paleo. I don’t eat strict paleo 100% of the time! Usually I try to keep the non-paleo stuff off the blog (because of the name DoYouEvenPaleo) but this was way to f’in good not to share.
Also, there are paleo options below. But if you can handle peanut butter, I wholeheartedly suggest making it with real peanut butter. It’s worth it.
First thing’s first. I can’t truly recreate this at home because I don’t have an espresso machine. I’m so enamored with this peanut butter & honey latte that I truly wish I could afford an espresso machine just to master this beverage at home. Unfortunately, it will be a long, long time before I have that kind of money.
If you have an espresso machine, all you’ve got to do is double the amount of nut milk in this recipe. I wouldn’t double the amount of peanut butter or honey. And if you’re like me and you prefer your coffee strong, use two shots of espresso. Oh so worth it.
Non-Dairy Milk Options
I made this peanut butter & honey latte with cashew milk, pecan milk, and coconut milk.
The only one I wouldn’t recommend is coconut milk. The flavor was too overpowering, and this isn’t a recipe for a PB + Honey + Coconut Latte. If that sounds good to you, though, use coconut milk!
Otherwise, stick to milder, neutral-tasting milks. Unsweetened almond milk should work, too!
Nut Butter Options
Yes, I did try it with other nut butters. Since this is a paleo blog, I utilized some paleo options. Sunflower seed butter and almond butter both work, but the result isn’t quite the same. The almond butter version definitely tastes like almond butter. The sunflower seed butter is closer to the original, but… But it just doesn’t have that same beautiful marriage of peanut butter and honey that I fell in love with.
I really sound like I fell in love with a latte, don’t I? And here I thought Americanos were my true love in the coffee world. Who knew I just had to blend some peanut butter and honey?
Okay, I’ve got to admit that I’m exaggerating just a little. I still revel in my black coffee every morning. But every once in a while, I want a blended coffee. And right now? This is my top choice.
