Peanut Butter Chocolate Doughnut Latte Recipe: Naughty Keto
I’m a committed low carb/keto eater. And I’m at the end of my first week of six weeks of hard training and dieting. I told myself that if I made it six days drinking black coffee, hitting the gym for an hour a day and adhering to all my rules, I’d be allowed my very favorite home made latte: this peanut butter chocolate doughnut latte.
Here’s what you need:
Dunkin Donuts Old Fashioned Doughnut Coffee
Heavy Whipping Cream
Peanut butter or almond butter or hazelnut butter
Brew the coffee, whip the cream. One the cream forms soft peaks, add splenda, cocoa and nut butter to taste. I add about three tablespoons of each to about two cups of heavy whipping cream.
Add almond milk to the coffee, then pop in the whipped cream mixture to taste. I like about half a cup. It will sink into the hot coffee and start to melt, and soon you’ll have a frothy, sweet, bitter, delicious peanut butter chocolate doughnut latte.
Now frankly, this isn’t an everyday latte for me, it’s a weekend treat. I usually drink it right before my super-long bike rides on Friday, and the fat and protein take me a long way.
Drink up! Happy weekend!

breakingupwithbadhabits asked: Any advice on quick, healthy snacking on the go or how to squeeze in extra workouts?
What a great question!
Healthy snacking on the go:
I’m a raw vegetable junkie so I snack on celery sticks, cut up green peppers, pea pods, etc. In my off time I am known to devour buckets of homemade nut butters. It’s a problem.
The key to eating and snacking healthy for anyone is preparation. So I spend literally hours on Sunday with my husband preparing food for the week. It’s a lot easier to make healthy choices when there are already cooked vegetables in the fridge.
Squeezing in extra workouts:
I don’t think about them as extra workouts…I think about them as an alternative to watching Netflix or vegging on the couch. I have recently made a rule that I can’t watch TV or movies during the week, or alone at all. You wouldn’t believe the kind of time and space that’s freed up in my life. I also do all the outside work on our house…bug spraying, fertilizing, mowing the lawn, trimming the hedges, mulching, gardening, chasing the cows out of the back yard…all that burns calories.
I also find ways to make working out more fun. So I emotionally blackmail my friends into working out with me. I guilt Teacup into going to the gym with me. I listen to a special audio book every time I get to work out.
