How to Make a Peanut Butter Chocolate Milkshake:
The super simplicity of this recipe means that anyone who can press a button can do it! All you need is 2 cups of your favorite chocolate ice cream (Breyers chocolate is our go to brand), 1 cup of milk – coconut milk or almond milk may be substituted, 1/3 of a cup of smooth peanut butter – or crunchy if you like to live on the wild side, plus one cup of ice. Throw the milk, ice and peanut butter into a blender and blend until smooth. Add the chocolate ice cream and pulse or blend until desired consistency—but not for too long, or it will get melty!
If you’re feeling a little fancy, add a tasty garnish. You can use a dollop of homemade whipped cream, a light shaving of chocolate or crushed nuts. Or sprinkle a bit of cocoa powder on top! The garnish possibilities are endless-some crumbled Reece’s, peanut butter or chocolate sprinkles, even cinnamon would be a lovely addition.
So whether you’re just home from work and have a hankering for something sweet, or you’ve got dozens of tweens to feed for the mega sleepover of the year, this quick and easy recipe is perfect for a fun sweet dessert or snack.

1/3 cup of peanut butter? This recipe is just begging to be tripled.
Why do I have to read a 40 paragraph preamble before getting to the recipe? Good grief.
You don’t have to read it, Paul. It’s a free country. And a free recipe. 🙂
Peanut Butter & Chocolate = Pure awesomeness. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Oh yes, this IS heavenly sounding, and you are smart to use Breyer’s chocolate…the best!! My dad was a dairy science major in college and swore by Breyer’s ice cream. I also agree with your pairs, i.e., Starsky & Hutch, the originals, of course. 😉
I’ve never heard of a dairy science major. How cool is that?!?
I would love to try this recipe at home with the help of your blog. Thanks
