Peanut Butter Milkshake

Here is a very easy, delicious (and adaptable!) milkshake recipe. I’ve had it for years and don’t remember where I got it, but credit went to head chef Rob Staegeman of Vivat Bacchus in London.

The recipe calls for “dessert spoons” of peanut butter, which usually means teaspoons. I used an actual dessert spoon with a rounded spoonful of peanut butter. Adjust the amount to your liking.

1 scoop vanilla ice cream
1 cup milk
2 dessert spoons smooth peanut butter

Blend everything in a blender and enjoy.

World’s Easiest Strawberry Milkshake

This is a delicious, super-easy milkshake that’s also a great way to use up any extra milk and strawberries. Even if the fruit is already a little soft, it’s perfect in this recipe. With agave syrup, it’s a great snack for those on a low-GI diet, though you can also use sugar or honey in its place.

Adjust the quantities to your liking, but here’s what worked for me when I made the recipe last night:

250ml skim milk
14 medium strawberries, hulled and washed
Agave syrup, to taste

Put all ingredients in blender and process until mostly smooth. Taste and adjust sweetener as desired.
