Hangover cures: peanut butter milkshakes

More kitchen toys. I couldn't resist buying these glasses shaped like milk bottles

No chewing required

It’s all well and good trying to be healthy but all those brilliant intentions fly out the window the day after the night before. I blame Guy Fawkes (and my friends); standing outside in the freezing cold on Bonfire Night yesterday waiting for the fireworks required serious amounts of warming liquidation in the form of too much red wine and whisky.

There’ll be no rainbow-themed cooking for me tonight; the only colours I can think of are those that don’t hurt my eyes.

I had my first peanut butter milkshake at a restaurant about three months ago and I’ve been dying to make one ever since. When I found some new drinking glasses designed to look like the milk bottles of old, I knew me and peanut butter milkshakes were always meant to be, especially today as I needed something to line my stomach without needing to chew…

I can’t however believe how many recipes you can find online for peanut butter milkshakes! O.M.G.

Anyway, I couldn’t face the bright glare of my computer screen for long so I choose the first recipe I found on youtube, and that was from Bettyskitchen. I haven’t however followed her recipe entirely as I put way less sugar than what she used as well as much more milk. I was after a milkshake that required very little effort to drink too.

I don’t know how many calories I’ve just consumed, I don’t actually want to know and, at the moment, I really don’t care.

The sugar’s keeping me together and the milk’s calming the jitters in my stomach. I’ll worry about the calories tomorrow when I can bear to open the curtains again. I just need someone to invent a noiseless blender because one minute’s blitzing just about broke me… I’m off back to bed again. Night night.

Peanut butter milkshakes. Just don't think about the calories.

They're meant to be used as glasses for water. Sod that!

Peanut butter milkshake

¼ cup sugar (I had some soft brown sugar to hand)

¼ cup water

½ cup smooth peanut butter

2 tablespoons of icing sugar

2 cups vanilla ice cream

½ – ¾ cup milk

Melt the sugar and water in a saucepan but remove it from the heat as soon as the sugar has dissolved. Stir in the peanut butter to form a sauce/paste and add the icing sugar.

Bung your ice cream into a blender or food processor and pour over the peanut butter sauce and milk. Blitz for as long as your hung-over ears can bear or until it’s as smooth or as chunky as you like.

Lots of love

    I remember having a peanut butter milkshake in one the health food store, it was so tasty.
    Now after seeing the pictures I am craving it. Will have to make it soon.
    Love the bottles, very cute.

    • In a health food shop!?!! These are pretty unhealthy because they’re so sweet but i guess you could make them healthier if you use low salt Pb and don’t add any more sugar syrup 🙂

  12. YUM! Now this is my kinda milkshake! I love the little glasses they’re in too 🙂
