This delicious drink is a yummy morning sip instead of coffee, or a nice dessert at night. It’s creamy, dairy-free, and so easy to make! This peanut butter cup drink reminds you of the candy without all the guilt, and has enough protein and healthy fats to fill in for a quick breakfast. You can make the hot chocolate both in the Instant Pot or on a stovetop! The Instant Pot allows for sealing the lid and retaining heat longer, if necessary.

This hot chocolate can easily be adapted into other flavors with Cinnamon powder or Peppermint extract instead of Peanut Butter, or omit all the additions and just add the vanilla for a rich, plain chocolate.

The Happy Gluten-Free Vegan is thrilled to partner with No Cow,
the BEST vegan, gluten-free protein bars!

If you like the idea of a peanut butter mocha, add in some brewed coffee – this combination tastes wonderful both hot and iced! You may even have all these ingredients on hand already.

Instructions

– Turn the Instant Pot on Sauté and add the coconut milk, cocoa powder, maple syrup, peanut butter, and vanilla. Whisk until combined. Taste and add more maple syrup, if necessary.

– Allow to heat through, be careful to not let it burn. Turn off the Instant Pot just before it boils.

Top with coconut whipped cream, chocolate shavings, or cacao nibs! This recipe can easily be doubled, or stored in the refrigerator and heated up later. While coconut milk will provide the heartiest hot chocolate, and certainly is the creamiest dairy-free option, this recipe has been created successfully with hemp and almond milk. These alternatives both complement the nutty peanut butter flavor, but are less rich. Mixing in some of the alternative milk to thin the consistency or to create a larger batch also has had ended up with a tasty result. To make this drink sugar-free, use 2-3 TBS of Lakanto’s sugar-free monkfruit syrup substitute instead of the maple syrup.
