Ingredients for each version

A heaping tablespoon of chocolate peanut butter syrup. (*See recipe below.)

• 1 cup of coffee. For even more flavor try some TheQueenBean.com Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake coffee.

6 ounces of milk.

Directions for the hot mocha

1) Place a tablespoon of syrup on the bottom of a preheated cup. If the syrup has been pre-made heat a heaping tablespoon in a saucepan. If needed, add a bit of coconut water for a looser consistency. Heat until warm.

3) Add a dash of syrup into 6 ounces of milk and froth it, using the method of your choice.

4) Pour the coffee into the cup until it is about 90% full and stir.

* Chocolate peanut butter syrup

You can make this in advance and refrigerate in an airtight container for future use.

Combine 1 & 1/2 cups coconut water, 1/2 cup natural peanut butter, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, and 1/4 cup honey in a medium saucepan. Heat on a medium setting, whisking constantly. Once the boil begins continue heating and whisking for about 4 minutes. Remove the mixture from the flame and stir in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Allow the mixture to cool, and store it in the refrigerator using (an) airtight container(s).
