Peanut Butter Frozen Hot Chocolate

For most of the year, here in Texas, the weather is… weird.

80 degrees one day, 20 degrees the next. Sunny one minute, hail storm the next. They have a saying about Texas: If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes. However, when it turns to summer, you can count on our weather to be one thing: oppressively hot!

Luckily, I’m well-prepared for the heat wave… with Frozen Hot Chocolate.


Remember Erika, with the Healthy Chocolate Cake Batter Milkshake?

She’s slowly warming up to the idea that healthy food can taste incredible. And the concoction I whipped up for her yesterday afternoon certainly didn’t hurt her opinion.


Peanut Butter Frozen Hot Chocolate

(Makes 1 really big serving)

  • 1 cup milk of choice (at least 1/3 cup as full-fat canned coconut milk if you want a really-rich treat)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (10 grams)
  • 1/16th tsp salt (do not omit this)
  • pinch stevia, OR 2 tbsp pure maple syrup or sugar of choice
  • Optional: for an even richer flavor, try adding a little melted chocolate (Serendipity’s recipe calls for this) or chocolate syrup
  • 1-2 tbsp peanut butter

Combine ingredients and whisk together on the stove. Or microwave 30 seconds, stir, then microwave another 30 seconds. Let cool, then pour into an ice-cube tray. If you don’t have one, pour into three or four small containers. (Or pour it all into one container, but be sure to thaw before doing the next step so your blender can handle the one big block of frozen-ness.) Freeze. Once frozen, pop the mixture into a blender and blend! (I used my Vita-Mix.) Do not add ice. I repeat: Do NOT add ice. You will dilute the flavor.

    I love your website and emails. I wonder if you are familiar with PB2? It is a tasty substitute for peanut butter. 2 Tbl=1 pp value! It even comes in chocolate flavor.

    Hi Kate:

    I live in New Brunswick Canada. My Summer plans are family coming down from Ontario and we are going to PEI. Will see Anne of Green Gables Play at Confederation Centre in Charlottetown PEI. We will enjoy the Beaches and maybe have high tea at
    Dalvay Hotel.

    Do you have any suggestions for low calorie trail mixes……..Love your Site and your receipes.

    • Chocolate Covered Katie says

      Thank you! I don’t have a trail mix recipe but would guess that you’d probably want to use more fruit than nuts if trying to keep the calories low. Freeze-dried fruit would be a great thing to add as well. 🙂

    I just made the chocolate peanut butter ice cream from your cookbook, and BOY is it good! One bite in, and I was muttering to myself, “This is really yummy.” LOL.

    I have to admit, I made a mess of myself making it, because some of it (probably because of the peanut butter) got stuck under the blades of my Vitamix and I had to turn everything off and dig it out. By the time I was done and send it through for one more blending, my hands and forearms were streaked in ice cream like a little kid making a mess with a melty ice cream cone. Heee. But it tasted good, so I just kind of laughed and headed over to the sink to wash up so that I could scoop up my ice cream and dig in!

    I had to stick some of it back in the freeze because it was so good, I was afraid I’d eat it all in one sitting!

    Anyway, I look forward to trying the other ice cream flavors from your cookbook. I was thinking I might try the vanilla one, and maybe try your “oreo” recipe and crush ’em up for some “cookies ‘n cream” ice cream. That would be yummy. (In fact one of my favorite DQ Blizzard flavors was mint oreo. It would be awesome to recreate that in a healthier form.)

    Thanks again for the yummy recipes!
