Peanut Butter Milkshake

I love peanut butter and even though I had peanut butter on toast for breakfast, I decided to try making a peanut butter milkshake for a little after lunch snack. Using just a handful of everyday ingredients and a blender, you can throw together a creamy treat that will delight any peanut butter fan. I recommend using the leftover topping on some vanilla ice cream topped with mini chocolate chips. YUM!
