I have never really been a fan of chocolates. Oftentimes, I wonder why are people so obsessed with chocolates? Then, something happened; my bestie came around some months ago and she made this chocolate peanut butter milkshake recipe!
This recipe marked the beginning of my newly found undying love for chocolates.
Also, this shake is creamy and very dreamy. Adding chocolates to your milkshake is a total game-changer.
Let’s make this recipe!
Chocolate peanut butter milkshake
- ½ to ¾ cup milk
- 1½ cups vanilla ice cream about 3 scoops
- 3 tablespoons chocolate syrup
- 2 slightly heaping tablespoons
- Whipped cream is optional for topping
- In a blender, add the milk, ice cream, chocolate, and peanut butter.
- Blend until the mixture is well combined.
- Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream and other toppings.
Notes on the ingredient
For this recipe, I used chocolate syrup. Feel free to replace it with any sauce or syrup. We are not trying to be boring here, so explore 😉.
You can use any of your favorite kinds of milk but make sure you use higher fat milk. This will make your shake creamier and richer.
I have made this peanut chocolate butter milkshake several times and I have never used a topping. However, if you would like to add some toppings to yours. (My aunt does this), you can use any of this.
- Whipped cream
- Peanut butter sauce
- Peanut butter candy
Can I use natural peanut butter in this shake?
Yes, you can. Although, my aunt uses processed peanut butter because she wants a clean and smooth milkshake. However, you can make use of a natural one if you so wish.
What other ingredients can I use to garnish this chocolate peanut butter milkshake?
It’s time to get creative: Firstly, get started by adding whipped cream or crushed nuts.
Also, if you are feeling very fancy, finish off with some cocoa powder, crumbled Reece. Add cinnamon to this and you will get a double thumbs up from your family and friends.
