Peanut Butter & Jelly Milkshake

peanut butter and jelly milkshake

This is how we eat on hot days. No need to run the oven or stove. This is light and refreshing... Just take some cool fruit and blend! It's also a delicious, sweet treat instead of ice cream. The heavy cream gives it the richness of a milkshake, but substitute with any kind of milk if you prefer something other than dairy.

This milkshake is tasty without needing any concentrated sweeteners. Bee pollen provides a bit of sweetening, but is way more nourishing and nutritionally balanced than honey. If you don't have any, you could substitute with honey, if desired. It would still be delicious with just the grapes and banana for sweetening, really, but I like adding bee pollen for its nutritional benefits.

You will need some frozen grapes and a frozen banana to make the recipe, so make those in advance if you haven't got them in stock.

Ingredients:

1 frozen banana (here's how we freeze them to perfection)
2 c frozen grapes
1/4 c peanut butter (see how we make it ourselves here)
1/4 c heavy cream (or 1 c alternative milk of choice)
1 tb bee pollen (or honey, if desired)
2 c water (use less water if using milk instead of cream)

Blend until creamy & smooth. Enjoy!

I'm posting an ad link to my favorite high speed blender below, perfect for making all kinds of delicious smoothies and healthy milkshakes. We've been loving it for years, and it looks like the price has even gone down since we bought ours. I'm also posting an ad link to the other leading high speed blender, for comparison. If you buy through my links, it helps support our family. Thanks in advance!

I was excited to find this because I have purchased so many grapes, over the summer, from my farmer friend at the farmers market and they're just sitting in the freezer. I haven't known what to do with them except eat them plain. This recipe will be a hit, although we prefer to substitute organic yogurt or kefir for the heavy cream. I enjoy your blog so much, thanks :-).

Wow such a deep purple color! Nice!

I saw this on Allergy Free Weds - if you're interested, I also shared my recipes on there: my banana bread muffins and mocha banana protein soft serve. Have a great morning :)
