It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time
I just tried this idea, and my dad walked in and jokingly suggested I add jelly. So I did, and it was actually really good. It’s like a sandwich in your coffee. Highly recommended.
Why hadn’t I thought of it? PB & J go so well together in sandwiches, that there is no reason they can’t get it on in coffee as well.
So I took the condiments I had lying around.
Put them in one of the party cups for the Magic Bullet blender. With a bit of sweetener, but not too much; jam should already be sweet, right?
Put it all in a Magic Bullet (or other blender of your choice), blend it up, and you’re left with a lovely looking foamy drink.
Taste-wise, this is actually the weirdest coffee I’ve made so far. The peanut butter, now blended right in with the coffee due to the magic of the blender, hinted at great things. But the jam gave the whole thing a sour flavour; like the cream had gone bad … or curdled, which maybe it had. It’s possible that the rather bitter pomegranate jam I used wasn’t the best compliment to coffee. If I do this again, I’ll try something sweeter like that strawberry junk that’s loaded with sugar; maybe then I can share Meera’s enthusiasm.
The blender also failed to fully solve PWTIC’s persistent sludge-at-the-bottom problem:
Seeds and PB goo at the bottom. Oh my!
So hey, not quite a recommendation, but it’s got potential.
Other peanut butter sandwich combinations on the to-do list: peanut butter banana and peanut butter pickle.
