HOW TO MAKE A PEANUT BUTTER MILKSHAKE
To make a peanut butter milkshake, add the ingredients to the blender jar in the order listed. If you want a thicker peanut butter milkshake, omit the milk and allow the ice cream to soften at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before you make it.
WHICH MILK IS BEST FOR MAKING PEANUT BUTTER MILKSHAKES
For a creamy, non-icy milkshake like a peanut butter milkshake, you'll want to use whole milk. The fat plays a huge roll in keeping the texture smooth.
You can use other milks, including dairy-free milk. If you do use another milk, I recommend using less milk and letting the ice cream soften for a few minutes before you make a milkshake.
This will reduce the chances of the peanut butter milkshake being too icy.
HOW TO MAKE A THICK PEANUT BUTTER MILKSHAKE
For a thick peanut butter milkshake, use only slightly softened vanilla ice cream. You can always add a little milk at a time, to get the desired consistency.
You can also add ice and blend until creamy.
HOW TO MAKE A MILKSHAKE WITH A BLENDER
If you're adding milk to your milkshake, you'll want to add the milk to the blender jar first. Then add in the ice cream, and finally the peanut butter.
Blend until well combined and serve the peanut butter milkshake immediately.
HOW TO MAKE A MILKSHAKE WITHOUT A BLENDER
Scoop the ice cream into a quart size mason jar or a deep glass container and microwave it for 15-30 seconds.
Add in the peanut butter, secure the lid and shake. You can also stir the milkshake mixture with a spoon. This will break the peanut butter up better.
Use the spoon to break up any larger sections of ice cream.
