Can you believe that it is already the last day of Frozen Treat Week? I’ve had so much fun with this theme and want to say a big thank you to Nutmeg Nanny and Katie’s Cucina for hosting and rounding up all of these great giveaways for you guys.

Today, among other things, we are giving away a blender (psst: giving another away next week!) so I thought it only appropriate to make a milkshake! A quick and easy treat with classic flavors, this milkshake will win anyone over. I kept it pretty simple but it would be great dressed up with some whipped cream and a cherry on top.

I love the flavors of chocolate, peanut butter and banana together, but if you’re missing one of the ingredients, it would also be great with only two. Peanut butter and chocolate? Always a match made in heaven. Don’t have bananas? A PB/Chocolate milkshake sounds pretty great to me! Don’t like chocolate?

Umm…really?

I guess if that’s truly the case, after you go seek help for that horrible affliction, you can make this minus the chocolate if you’re still not cured. My husband added vanilla protein powder and drank this after a work out. And because it has a banana in it, you can feel totally good about eating it — gotta get your fruit, right?

I love how your recipe is like the richer, more decadent version of what I posted today :) I adore this flavor combo so much- is it a bad idea for breakfast? :)

This has been my favorite milkshake combo ever since I was little. Sometimes I just freeze the banana and skip the ice cream!

Kudos on the healthy choice ;) I always recommend ice cream though, haha!

This looks so good! Love peanut butter and banana and chocolate is just an added bonus. :)

I normally make this combo as a smoothie but with ice cream sound so much better!

A smoothie sounds delish too!

The first thing I would make with The Blendtec would be a squash soup and then a cherry malt.
