These Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Yogurt Cups are so easy to make with just six ingredients and taste like that notorious candy we all love: Reese’s.

I’ve been on a bit of a peanut butter kick lately. Peanut butter stuffed dates have been my new favorite after dinner treat. But with the hot weather here, I’m itching for a colder treat. So I decided to try my hand at making a vegan version of this classic treat with a little summertime twist. These little cups of deliciousness have a rich chocolate bottom layer with a creamy and sweet peanut butter yogurt filling and are topped with more chocolate and some crushed peanuts. One of the best parts is that they come together in under 25 minutes — perfect for when you’re craving something sweet but don’t have time to make a big dessert.

Did I mention that these Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Yogurt Cups are actually kind of healthy? We all know peanut butter is a great source of protein and healthy fats. Yogurt offers a great way to pack in some fiber and probiotics. And dark chocolate can improve heart health and provides antioxidants. Agave and vanilla extract add a little depth of flavor and there you have it – an indulgent treat that’s good for you! Of course, they are 100% vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar free and no bake (cause who wants to turn the oven on in the summer? Not me).

The yogurt part of this recipe adds an element of creaminess similar to ice cream. So needless to say they are a perfect refreshing summer treat. I’ll definitely be eating these poolside all summer long.

Ingredients – Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Yogurt Cups

• Non-Dairy Yogurt – be sure to use a thick, plain yogurt with a neutral flavor. For this recipe I use Oatly’s plain unsweetened yogurt. It’s thick and has the perfect consistency for this recipe.

Peanut Butter – a runny nut butter works best in this recipe, so try to use an all-natural nut butter. I typically use my homemade peanut butter in this recipe. If you have a peanut allergy and want to switch this recipe up, I would use any other nut or seed butter such as almond buttercashew butterhazelnut butter (this would give it a Nutella twist), or sunflower butter.

Maple Syrup – to add sweetness. Agave would work as well.

Vanilla Extract

Vegan Dark Chocolate – I always use the brand Hu Chocolate. It’s made with clean ingredients and my all-time favorite chocolate. Be sure to use my code BOOBOO for a discount.

Coconut Oil – be sure to use refined coconut oil as it does not have any coconut flavor.

I don’t know about you, but I used to love Reese’s peanut butter cups. A lot. But I can’t eat them anymore because of all the refined sugar, dairy and artificial ingredients that are in them. So when I came up with this recipe for Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Yogurt Cups, I was soo excited. These little cups are like that notorious candy we all love, but they’re healthier and taste even better than their non-vegan counterpart. Plus, they have a little summertime twist due to the frozen yogurt bit.

Since these are made with real food, you won’t get that sugar crash after eating them like you would most store-bought treats. These Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Yogurt Cups would be great as an afternoon treat or for a quick dessert after dinner. They would also be perfect for parties or potlucks because they’re so easy to transport and serve and they look beautiful. I hope you try them and love them (I’m sure you will).
