RECIPE – Coffee Cream Filled Donuts – featuring Karuna’s Boost Synergy Coffee Blend

Prep Time: 1 hr 30 min
Cook Time: 20 min
Total Time: 1 hr 50 min
Yield: 12 donuts


For the Donuts:

  • ¾ cup KARUNA’S BOOST
  • ¼ cup milk or dairy-free milk alternative
  • ¼ cup melted butter or vegan butter substitute
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar or zero-calorie sweetener
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp instant yeast

For the Cream:

  • ¼ cup KARUNA’S BOOST
  • 1 cup fat-free cream cheese or vegan substitute
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar or zero-calorie sweetener
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/8 espresso powder

Additional Ingredients:

  • oil spray for sugar coating
  • sugar or zero-calorie sweetener to roll the donuts in


Make the Donuts

  1. In a large mixing bowl, sift in the flour, sweetener, salt, and yeast. Give it a quick whisk to combine.
  2. In a separate bowl, add in KARUNA’S BOOST, milk, butter, and egg. Whisk until well-combined.
  3. Add the wet mixture into the dry mixture and fold until a dough forms. Continue to knead the dough with your hands for 10 minutes or until the sides of the bowl are clean.
  4. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth or paper towel and set aside in a warm spot for an hour. The dough will double in size.
  5. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough until ½” in thickness. Use a glass or a 3” cookie cutter to punch out circles. Take the extra dough, roll it out again, and continue to make circles until there isn’t any dough left.
  6. Transfer the circles onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Set aside for 15 minutes to let the dough rise and preheat the oven to 350°F (175°F).
  7. Bake the donuts for 18-20 minutes or until they are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let them cool.

Make the Cream

  1. In a bowl, whisk together KARUNA’S BOOST and cream cheese.
  2. Sift in the sugar, coconut flour, cocoa powder, and espresso powder. Whisk until well-combined and add more coconut flour is the mixture is too wet.
  3. Transfer the cream to a piping bag.


  1. Once the donuts are cooled, from the side, insert the piping tip into the middle and fill each donut with 1-2 tbsp of cream.
  2. Lightly spray the donuts with oil and roll them in the sugar until fully coated.
  3. Serve and enjoy!
