Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake

Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake

I generally like my milkshakes in classic flavors like vanilla, strawberry and chocolate, with the former two being slightly favored over the latter. When you have a really good milkshake, these flavors really shine. But as with all things, variety is nice, too, and as good as a plain vanilla milkshake is, it’s nice to be able to dress it up a bit with other flavors from time to time. This particular milkshake was inspired by a melted peanut butter cup – recently purchased and apparently sitting in a sunny spot in the car on the way home from the market. I considered popping it in the fridge to firm up, but ended up tossing it into the blender and turning it into a milkshake.

This milkshake isn’t super thick, nor is it so intensely flavored that you have to stop drinking after three or four sips. It is cool and refreshing, with just enough peanut butter and chocolate that you know what you’re tasting. It has a little bit more peanut butter flavor than chocolate, much like a peanut butter cup. The actual peanut butter cup called for in the recipe is a nice touch (whether yours is melted, like mine, or not) but is optional. If you prefer your milkshakes to be very thick, add an extra scoop of ice cream and even a few ice cubes, if necessary.

Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake
1 cup milk (any kind)
2/3 cup vanilla ice cream (about 2 scoops)
3 tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp chocolate syrup
1 large peanut butter cup

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until very smooth. Add additional ice cream, if you desire a thicker consistency.

Makes 1 large or 2 medium-sized milkshakes.

    I worked at an ice cream shop, so I spent a lot of time experimenting with milkshakes and other frozen treats, and I found that another fantastic combination is peanut butter and banana.

    Milkshake in peanut flavor is something new for me. I always experience drinking milkshakes in vanilla or chocolate flavors.

    This combines two of my favorite things, milkshakes and peanut butter cups haha.

    I love mixing strawberry and chocolate milkshakes but this is a whole new level. I’ll have to try this sometime to see if i can get the balance right without overpowering the taste.

  • Stopping by from Something Swanky. This shake sounds beyond delicious. And that tile looks just like my coffee table. 🙂
