My husband and I, while we were still dating, used to meet at our local Red Robin after work for our midweek dates. His favorite drink during the sumemr was the Peanutty Freeze. It's basically just a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. My husband was really disappointed when Red Robin changed their menu many years ago, eliminating the Peanutty Freeze altogether. My husband has missed this milkshake ever since. So I went on a search for the recipe so he would be able to have his favorite milkshake now and then at home. After much begging, I eventually came upon this recipe for the Red Robin Peanutty Freeze (chocolate peanut butter milkshake).
- Place water, peanut butter, dry hot cocoa mix, and ice cream in a blender container. Cover; blend until smooth, about 30 seconds.
- Pour mixture into two tall beverage glasses.
- Garnish with whipped cream or chocolate whipped cream, if desired, and sprinkle the top with the finely chopped peanuts.
Yummy goodness! I made half the recipe for myself and I was kind of disappointed when I saw how little I would get to enjoy, but after I took the first sip I knew my sweet tooth would be satisfied. Deliciously rich. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Made this as I actually had all ingredients on hand. No blender so this got hand mixed and i used chocolate milk instead of water. Very yummy, very peanut buttery too but in a good way. Will make again!
I made half the recipe for myself this morning and wish I had made it all, because it is soooo good! It is so chocolatey, peanutty, creamy and delicious! YUM!
I used Sydney Mike's Banana Sorbet (Raw Food) in place of the vanilla ice-cream plus about 3 tbs of vanilla rice milk to make this vegan. Also I used cocoa powder instead of the drink mix and it still came out so decadent and chocolatey that I didnt miss the sugar at all.
This is such a wonderful creation that I will certainly make often again. I can completely understand why this is your hubby's fav drink! :)
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this here with us, NorthwestGal!
