Peanut Butter Milkshake Recipe

Milkshakes are one of those drinks that I make every time I’m craving for a sweet and cool drink. Sometimes, I would even buy one from Five Guys to save time, but I always preferred my homemade milkshakes. I usually make one during the summer to beat the heat, but lately, I’ve been enjoying it as a casual after-meal sweet dessert. I’ve made a classic chocolate milkshake and banana milkshake so far, so then I decided to try other kinds of unique flavors. I ended up making this peanut butter milkshake that was so much more delicious than a chocolate shake

It’s not everyday that I get to taste a flavorful combination of sweet and nutty with a bit of a salty and earthy tone. This peanut butter milkshake lets you enjoy that delightful mix of flavors in just one cup! It’s also such an easy recipe to make. All you need are three simple ingredients and a blender to enjoy this peanut butter shake

For my recipe, I started with the basic milkshake ingredients: ice cream and whole milk. Since I’m making a peanut butter flavored milkshake, I included creamy peanut butter into the mix. You can also use other kinds of peanut butter as alternatives like the natural and healthy peanut butter or chunky peanut butter options. Once you have these, then you can start blending it together for a few seconds, and then serve with toppings of your choice. 

Another thing I love about this peanut butter milkshake recipe is that I can also add other ingredients to make recipe variations. There was this one time I wanted to make a healthy milkshake using peanut butter. I removed the ice cream and replaced it with frozen bananas. I also used coconut milk instead of regular whole milk. This dairy-free version is probably the healthiest milkshake I’ve ever made so far, and it tasted just as wonderfully delicious. 

Or, you can also just add in the bananas in the blender to make a banana peanut butter milkshake flavor. I also made a chocolate peanut butter milkshake variation. I added about 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder into the mix, and the result was just perfect as well. That’s why I enjoyed making this peanut butter milkshake because I got to make not just one kind of drink, but also had fun creating new and exciting flavors!
