Happy Friday! Last year, I made several cookie-themed milkshakes including Circus Animal Cookie Milkshakes, Oreo Milkshakes, and Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Milkshakes … but I realized I left a cookie out! Nutter Butters! So I came up with this delicious, over-the-top Nutter Butter and Jelly Milkshake!
Nutter Butter and Jelly Milkshake
I love Nutter Butters! I never had even tried one for years, but only started eating them when my marathon training group would hand them out to the runners when we were doing long 10+ mile runs. I guess they would hand them out because peanut butter has protein and there’s sodium in them? I don’t know, but, regardless, they are delicious! And so when I was brainstorming for this milkshake, I realized it was a no-brainer to make a play on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and make a Nutter Butter and Jelly Milkshake. So it’s a grape jelly milkshake with peanut butter frosting and grape jelly swirled in the glasses, the glass rim is garnished with a generous helping of peanut butter frosting and decorated with Nutter Butter Minis, then the milkshake is topped with whipped cream, regular Nutter Butter cookie, and a mini cookie and a dollop of grape jelly!
Here’s the recipe:
- 1.25 cups of milk
- 4 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1/2 cup grape jelly, divided
- homemade peanut butter frosting (see below)
- whipped cream (see below)
- Nutter Butter and Nutter Butter Minis for garnish
- Whipped Cream:
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Peanut Butter Frosting:
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, cubed, at room temperature
- ¾ tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- First, make your whipped cream by combining the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla and using your whisk attachment in stand mixture with a bowl that's been in the freezer for 10 minutes, whisk on medium-high for several minutes until the peaks stand upright. Add it to a pastry bag outfitted with a fancy tip if you'd like.
- Next, make your homemade peanut butter frosting by adding all the ingredients together in your mixer and mix with the paddle attachment until incorporated. Then garnish your glasses with the frosting and Nutter Butter Minis. Put aside any leftover peanut butter frosting to add to the milkshake.
- Then mix together the milk, vanilla ice cream, and half the grape jelly.
- Add some peanut butter frosting and grape jelly to the glasses, then fill the glasses with milkshake.
- Top with whipped cream, add one straw, a regular-sized Nutter Butter and a Nutter Butter Mini and a dollop of grape jelly.
I use my Ninja blender for all my milkshakes! I can’t say enough good things about the blender! It’s not super cheap, but it won’t fall apart like some $20-30 brands (looking at you, Hamilton Beach). It also doesn’t cost an arm and a leg (like a Vitamix.) If you’re in need of a new blender, I definitely recommend this one. My only tip is that even though the pitcher says it’s dishwasher safe, be sure to hand wash it. Our first one cracked in the dishwasher, but our replacement pitcher has been going strong for 3-4 years now.
Is there a cookie milkshake I’ve missed? I’m NOT doing an oatmeal cookie! But, let me know in a comment your favorite cookie and I’ll make a few more.
