If the title has you skeptical, just stick with me and keep scrolling because there is warm, sweet sipping ahead.
I’m mish-mashing some beloved flavors together with this winter drink-in-a-jar. I love apple cider and all the wonderful spices that come with it with. And I love apples + peanut butter in almost anything. So my unconventional recipe imagination said “Hey, why not throw it all together?” And I’m so glad I listened.
Warm, fruity, nutty, mmmmmm…..
Peanut Butter Apple Cider
2 cups organic apple juice
3-4 tbsps powdered peanut butter (I used PB2) *see note
1/4 tsp cinnamon
A small pinch each of cloves, nutmeg, and allspice (these spices are potent, so you don’t need much)
Optional: 1 tbsp maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
- Warm up the apple juice on the stove or in the microwave.
- Blend everything together.
- Taste, and add the optional sweetener if desired.
- Pour into a jar or mug, top with chopped peanuts and cinnamon, and sip!
*Note: You can use regular peanut butter, but it will make for a much thicker consistency.
