Peanut Butter Explosion Milkshake – A homemade milkshake loaded with peanut butter and decorated with Reese’s Pieces and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup!
Sadly, today is the last recipe we have for National Ice Cream Month. I’ve had such a blast creating and sharing new ice cream and frozen treats with you all this month. But I am ready to get back to the savory foods next month, that’s for sure. My freezer is stuffed full of leftovers and I don’t think it can hold much more!
Before we bid farewell to this month, I have a final ice cream recipe for you. The recipe is for my Peanut Butter Explosion Milkshake. It’s loaded with peanut butter and decorated with Reese’s Pieces and a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. It truly is an overload of peanut butter!
And here it is!
Tips and Tricks
- Creamy, smooth peanut butter is best. To get the perfect texture for this milkshake, make sure to use creamy peanut butter instead of the natural or crunchy kind.
- Use less milk for thick shakes. Obviously, the less milk you use, the thicker the milkshake will be.
- Blend just until smooth. Do not over blend the milkshake or it will become too thin and runny.
Peanut Butter Explosion Milkshake
For the milkshake
- 4 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup milk
- ¼ cup peanut butter for garnish
- ½ cup Reese's pieces
- 2 Reese's peanut butter cups cut in half
- whipped cream for garnish
- chocolate sauce for garnish
To make milkshakes
- Prep 4 serving glasses by lining the rim with a thin coating of peanut butter. Chop up the Reese's pieces and roll the peanut butter rims in them. Set aside.
- Add milk, ice cream, and peanut butter to blender. Blend until smooth, about 15-20 seconds. Pour into prepped glasses, top with whipped cream, half of a peanut butter cup, a drizzle of chocolate sauce, and serve with a straw.
