Peanut Butter Coffee Smoothie

Today I’m sharing with you a delicious breakfast smoothie with a kick of dark roast coffee. The best of both worlds!

Coffee, one of my true loves. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I love my coffee.

I’m from Rhode Island. Rhode Island, and the Northeast in general, is Dunkin’ Donuts® mecca. We love our Dunkin’. We drink iced coffees all year round (yes, even in the winter). That has actually been one of the most bizarre things I’ve noticed here in the South – they drink more hot coffee, even though it’s warmer here. Or, maybe it’s just bizarre to me. I think people think I’m pretty crazy when I order an iced coffee in the winter.

When I’m at home, I usually opt for a hot coffee. I’m telling you, you guys, my Keurig is one of my most precious household appliances. I couldn’t live without it. The Dunkin’ K cups provide a rich, smooth and consistent cup of coffee every time. No bitterness either!

But, in the summer, all I crave is iced coffee. So, I decided to combine my love for iced coffee and my love for smoothies. And that’s how this iced coffee breakfast smoothie originated.

Think peanut butter, chocolate, banana and coffee all in one.

Being from Rhode Island, I had no idea what a Publix was growing up. But, now that I have access to one, my life has changed for the better. Shopping at Publix is such a pleasant grocery shopping experience. The aisles are extraordinarily clean, every worker is out to help you and ask what you need, and you just leave feeling happy and calm, rather than frantic and stressed. Amazing, right?

This smoothie comes together in no time, especially if you have brewed coffee pre made. Otherwise, just stick a Dunkin’ Donuts K cup in the Keurig, and it’ll be ready in no time. Dunkin’ has so many flavor options, in both their K cups and ground coffee, found in the coffee aisle at Publix. I went with the dark roast for my smoothie, but french vanilla, chocolate glazed donut or hazelnut would also be yummy!

To speed the cooling process, you can stick the coffee mug in the fridge or freezer until you’re ready to make your smoothie.

Just combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend. It is a bit on the bolder side, so if you like your coffee sweeter, you could add more sweetener, or even substitute the milk for creamer.

I love how creamy they came out. If you like yours more icy, you can, of course, add more ice. Or, if you like it milkier and more liquid, you can add more milk, too! If you like it sweeter, I recommend using the whole banana. You can also throw some protein powder in there for extra protein.

  1. WOW! This is all of my favorite things in one smoothie! I did not know you were from the Northeast too 🙂 I hope to one day live down south myself–I’m pretty done with these stupid winters! Anyway–this looks delicious! I love iced coffee in the summer and make my own but also enjoy treating myself every now and again from a coffee shop!

  2. I live in Massachussetts (one mile from Heartbreak Hill!). What is this Publix you refer to? 🙂 Just kidding I have seen them when travelling down south. What powdered peanut butter do you use?

    I’m a new reader and have caught up on some of your earlier posts. Great blog! I look forward to reading and learning more.

    1. I know – I grew up in RI and we did not have Publix!! Such a shame. I use PB2 for powdered peanut butter – they also have a delicious chocolate flavored one – my favorite! Thanks for commenting, Amanda 🙂

  3. Oh wow. peanut butter in a coffee drink sounds really good. We don’t have Publix here, but if I’m ever over there and I have an opportunity to go I should go. It sounds like a wonderful experience.
