Peanut butter (affiliate) is an endangered species at our house. We make peanut butter cookies, peanut butter smoothies, and of course peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but our favorite is this peanut butter shake.

Peanut Butter Blast Shake
A couple of weeks ago my kiddos and I decided we needed a fun twist to our classic peanut butter shake recipe.
One of our Cambodian friends just happened to be at our house hanging out when we were inspired to experiment with some amazing flavors. That poor guy had never had marshmallows or white chocolate in his entire 21 years of life! Imagine — a life without marshmallows and white chocolate. OK, don’t. It’s much too sad to imagine. But rest assured, I will keep making that young guy peanut butter blast shakes. He loved it and is now a fan of that white, sugary fluffy stuff that we Americans call “marshmallows.”
One thing I loved about this shake was the extra crunch the tiny pieces of white chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips add to the shake. Reminds of me of my old time favorite — blizzards! If you’re like me and you like some crunch to your shake, make sure you use crunchy peanut butter instead of smooth. But if you have a creamy peanut butter snob in the house like I do, just play it safe with creamy style.
Are you ready for a peanut butter shake recipe that will knock your family’s socks off? No, of course you’re not. That would mean more laundry. So, I will just share a fun shake recipe that will get everyone giggling and smiling from this home-made dessert that tastes like a famous food chain’s blizzard. Ready for a blast?
How To Make a Peanut Butter Shake:
- 2 bananas, peeled. (frozen is best)
- 2 cups milk ( more for a thinner shake, less for a thicker shake)
- 1 1/2 cups ice
- 1/3 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
- 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
- 1/4 cup sugar
- dash salt
Place ice on bottom of blender, then toss in remaining ingredients except milk. Top it off with the milk and blend until smooth. If mixture is too chunky for your liking, add more milk until it reaches desired consistency. We have had to adjust the amount of milk we use due to using different peanut butters. Some were thicker and some had more oil. If you’re skipping freezing the bananas, your shake will naturally be more thin. Frozen bananas add a little bit of thickness to a shake. Just eye it and if things aren’t blending up as quickly as desired add 1/4 cup milk. Don’t add too much or you will end up with a liquidy mess.
This makes approximately 2-3 shakes. Just depends how big your cup is! Wink, wink!
