"This peanut butter milkshake is a rich, delicious concoction you will want to make again and again. I could imagine a drizzle of chocolate sauce or a dollop of chocolate whipped cream as a garnish. It was easy to prepare and delicious!" —Diana Rattray
2 cups vanilla ice cream
3/4 cup whole milk
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
Whipped cream, optional garnish
Chopped peanuts, optional garnish
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Place the ice cream, milk, and peanut butter in your blender.
Blend until completely smooth.
Pour the shakes into 2 large glasses. Then, top with whipped cream and chopped peanuts.
- Put your milkshake glasses in the fridge about 15 minutes before you plan to prepare and serve the milkshakes.
- Softened ice cream is easier to blend. Let the ice cream soften at room temperature for about 10 to 15 minutes, or in the fridge for about 20 to 25 minutes.
- Layer the ingredients in this order: milk, ice cream, then peanut butter. If you're adding any other ingredients, such as cookies, candy, or pretzels, pulse them in after blending the milkshake.
There are so many ways you can customize this simple shake.
- Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake: Add 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup to the shake. Coat the rim of a glass with chocolate frosting and stick mini peanut butter cups all over the chocolate rim. Top with whipped cream and crushed peanut butter cups.
- Peanut Butter Pretzel S'more Milkshake: Blend in 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup. Broil a cup of mini marshmallows and pour that into the milkshake and blend away. Coat the rim of the glass with chocolate syrup. Dip the chocolate rim in crushed graham crackers and top with whipped cream, pretzels, and more broiled marshmallows.
- Peanut Butter Oreo Milkshake: Blend in 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup and 5 peanut butter Oreo cookies. Coat the rim of the glass with chocolate syrup and dip in crushed peanut butter Oreos. Top with whipped cream and more crushed Oreos. Or throw a whole Oreo or two on top.
- Peanut Butter Caramel Blondie: Blend in 2 tablespoons of caramel syrup. Dip the rim of the glass in the syrup too and then roll in crumbled blondie pieces. Top with whipped cream, crushed peanuts, caramel sauce, and a chunk of blondie.
- Peanut Butter Cookie Milkshake: Blend in 2 peanut butter cookies. Dip the edge of the glass in some thinned-out peanut butter and roll in crushed peanut butter cookies. Top with whipped cream and a whole peanut butter cookie.
- You can replace the peanut butter with PB2, which is a peanut butter replacement that has a lower fat content. It's a powdered form and has some sugar added, so it will make this shake a little sweeter. The shake won't ever be super-low in calories, but this will save you a few.
- To make this shake dairy free, substitute dairy-free milk, and ice cream.
How to Store Leftover Milkshake
- A milkshake is best enjoyed right away, but you can refrigerate it for 1 to 2 hours.
- For longer storage, pour the milkshake into an airtight freezer container and freeze it for up to 2 months. Defrost it on the countertop for 10 to 20 minutes.
