Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake Recipe
Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake Recipe | Source

I cannot tell a lie. I have a love affair with chocolate and peanut butter. Almost nothing can beat it in my opinion. I even have a pinterest board dedicated to chocolate peanut butter recipes. To me it's that good.

Another thing I love is a good milkshake. Nice and thick, it is usually my go to treat when my family visits an ice cream shop. Nothing beats a well made milkshake on a hot summer evening. There's something about it that just takes me back to being a kid.

Combine the flavors of chocolate and peanut butter with the creaminess of a milkshake, and you have yourself one of the best milkshakes you'll ever try.

See for yourself when you make my delicious recipe. You'll also find some serving suggestions.

Cook time

Prep time: 5 min
Ready in: 5 min
Yields: 2 milkshakes

Ingredients

  • 6 generous scoops chocolate ice cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 5 tablespoons peanut butter, use smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup, (optional)
  • Garnish of whipped cream, (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place the chocolate ice cream in a blender.
  2. Pour milk on top.
  3. Add the peanut butter and chocolate syrup. I don't recommend crunchy peanut butter because the nuts tend to get stuck in the straw.
  4. Blend until smooth.
  5. Pour into glasses and top with whipped cream if desired.
  6. Enjoy!

Substitutions and variations

There are various ways to alter this recipe without losing that chocolate peanut butter flavor.

  • To thicken, add more ice cream or a few ice cubes.
  • Use skim milk and/or low-fat ice cream to lighten up the milkshake.
  • Add more chocolate syrup to really amp up the chocolate flavor.
  • Add more peanut butter to amp up the peanut butter flavor.
  • Add one or two tablespoons of cooled coffee for a mocha flavor.
  • Drizzle chocolate syrup on top to garnish.
  • Finely chop up some peanuts to garnish.
  • Sprinkle chocolate shavings or jimmies to garnish.
  • Chop up some chocolate peanut butter cup candies and sprinkle on the top.
  • If you can't eat peanut butter, try soy nut butter instead. It may not taste exactly the same, but it is a good substitution.

Fun peanut butter facts

A 12 ounce jar of peanut butter contains about 550 peanuts.

The #1 snack in the U.S. is peanuts.

East coast residents in the U.S. prefer creamy peanut butter while West coast residents prefer the crunchy variety.

June 12 is National Peanut Butter Cookie Day.

Peanuts grow in the ground, not in a tree.

Peanuts contain more protein than any other nut.

Some people like to put peanuts in cola.

In the U.S., if it called peanut butter, it must be made up of 90% peanuts.

History of peanut butter

There is evidence of peanut butter dating back to the Aztec civilization. Aztecs would pulverize roasted peanuts until a paste was formed.

In more modern peanut history, it is commonly thought that George Washington Carver invented peanut butter, but this is not the case. He did demonstrate multiple uses for peanuts.

Instead, the following three people invented the process and machinery for making peanut butter as we know it today: Marcellus Gilmore Edson, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, and Dr. Ambrose Straub.

The oldest peanut butter producing company, Krema Products Company, is still operating today.

Today half of all peanuts grown get made into peanut butter, and by the time the average american child graduates high school, they will have eaten 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

      Just sign me up! One a day keeps the doctor away in my opinion. Peanut butter and chocolate...a combination made by the gods. Great recipe and you can bet I'll be trying this. In fact, I have no idea why I didn't think of it myself. :)

      I'd like to reach through my screen and have a taste right now. Years ago I used to take chocolate ice cream and top it off with peanut butter then mix it all together. It was pretty good. Years later I found Reese's Peanut Butter syrup. When you'd pour it on the ice cream it would harden.

      Your recipe and pictures look so delicious.

      It's 12.46 am here and I really want one! lol! it looks and sounds so yummy! I must admit we don't eat a lot of peanut butter over here, well, at least not in my family, I really do need to get some. I think when you mentioned peanut butter and jelly we call it jam? is that right? lol!

      Peanut butter is one of those delicious things that, while found everywhere here in the states, may not be found as much elsewhere. I remember visiting my Grandmother in Germany and peanut butter was nowhere to be found in the stores. Jelly is sort of like jam. To me jelly is clear like aspic, but jam is thicker and has bits of fruit. I love jam, but not so much jelly. Jelly always reminds me of aspic. Thanks for commenting!

My best friend worked there and made awesome milkshakes. She was playing around one day, experimenting, and made me a peanut butter shake with chocolate ice cream.

      How could you going wrong? You have peanut butter and chocolate here. Two amazing flavors and textures that are very addictive when mixed into ice cream. My favorite! When, I'm training hard at the gym and dreaming about this, I'll return to let you know all about it. "Trouble maker!"

      Sometimes when you fill like cheating, just a little bit. I blend bananas and protein in mine. It helps the colories disappear! You sure are great with these sweet treats. I really enjoy the history and fun facts you offer here also. Cheers!

      I like the idea of putting some bananas in it. That would definitely "slim" it down a little bit. But sometimes I just need some ice cream. Thanks for reading and commenting. Hope you enjoy your milkshake.
