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.

This milkshake is aΒ 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?


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.Β 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?

      That sounds amazing!

  7. Faith (An Edible Mosaic) — July 26, 2013 at 8:44 am

    Chocolate & pb is absolutely one of my favorite combos…add banana into the mix and it doesn’t get any better!

    • Rachel Gurk — July 27th, 2013 @ 8:26 pm

      Thanks Julia! I’m going to miss frozen treat week too πŸ˜‰

  11. Samantha — July 26, 2013 at 10:46 am

    Nothing better than a pb and chocolate milkshake. The addition of the banana makes it that much better!

    • Rachel Gurk — July 27th, 2013 @ 8:28 pm

      Thanks Samantha! Had fun seeing your frozen treats!

  12. Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar — July 26, 2013 at 11:05 am

    This has all the flavours I want in a milkshake! LOVE this!

    • Rachel Gurk — July 27th, 2013 @ 8:29 pm

      Thanks Katrina!

  13. Rebecca {Foodie with Family} — July 26, 2013 at 11:16 am

    Wooooooooo! I am totally making this for my dad the next time we get together. He’s a peanut butter maniac. I want one, too, honestly!

    • Rachel Gurk — July 27th, 2013 @ 8:31 pm

      Thanks Rebecca! Hope he loves it!

  14. natalie@thesweetslife — July 26, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    i’d skip the protein powder and STILL eat it after a workout πŸ˜‰

    • Rachel Gurk — July 27th, 2013 @ 8:32 pm

      I like how you’re thinking!

  15. Amy @ The Nifty Foodie — July 26, 2013 at 1:46 pm

    I love a good margarita!

    • Bonnie M — July 27th, 2013 @ 9:12 am

      Awesome- thank you!

    • Rachel Gurk — July 27th, 2013 @ 8:34 pm

      Me too! πŸ™‚

  16. Joanne — July 26, 2013 at 3:34 pm

    So…If I made your milkshake with my pb cup ice cream…I’d pretty much be set for life. As in, I’d never eat anything else ever again.

    • Rachel Gurk — July 27th, 2013 @ 8:35 pm

      Omg — best idea ever!

  17. Amy Lee — July 26, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    I have to know where you found those straws. I need them in my life.

  18. Kiersten @ Oh My Veggies — July 26, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    Ooh, I need one of these right now. Actually, I think I need two–one for each hand. πŸ™‚

    • Rachel Gurk — July 27th, 2013 @ 8:51 am

      I think double fisting is a very, very good idea with these shakes πŸ™‚

  19. Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. — July 26, 2013 at 11:55 pm

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

    • Rachel Gurk — July 27th, 2013 @ 9:07 am

      Kudos on the healthy choice πŸ˜‰ I always recommend ice cream though, haha!

  20. Erin @ Texanerin Baking — July 27, 2013 at 8:48 am

    This looks so good! Love peanut butter and banana and chocolate is just an added bonus. πŸ™‚

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

    • Rachel Gurk — July 27th, 2013 @ 8:35 pm

      A smoothie sounds delish too!

  21. Bonnie M — July 27, 2013 at 9:01 am

    I would love to know more about that jar- absolutely love it!

    • Rachel Gurk — July 27th, 2013 @ 9:05 am

      It’s a bicentennial Mason jar — found it in my mom’s basement πŸ™‚

  22. Noreen — July 29, 2013 at 2:53 am

    I love a really good mint chip coffee milk shake, topped with whipped cream

  23. Emma @ Cooking In Cashmere — July 30, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    I make a similar milkshake recipe to this and I love it. I would never thought of adding the fudge to it, though! x

  24. avril — July 30, 2013 at 7:12 pm

    Just made this delicious drink! Loved every drop!!! πŸ™‚

    • Rachel Gurk — July 30th, 2013 @ 8:25 pm

      Glad you liked it!

  25. JJ Caraway — August 7, 2013 at 7:01 pm

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

  26. Bea Long — August 8, 2013 at 3:09 am

    I would love the Blend -Tec to make a cabbage and spinach ice cream!!
