Milk Round: peanut butter & jelly

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

It is no secret that I am an out and proud Anglophile. My love of all things British comes into a league of its own especially where my taste buds are concerned!

However, when it come to the words ‘peanut butter and jelly’ I am an American through and through. At the mere mention of this dazzling duo, all my inner patriotism goes straight out of the window! (Sorry Kate & Wills!)

To me this combo is utter genius. The balance between the sweet, sharp fruity jam against the rich and somehow salty peanuts is so satisfying and fun- it’s almost impossible not to feel like a Girl Scout with a mug of this in your hand! Add in some smores for a true American style ‘camp out’ experience!

Now to starting humming the Star spangled banner!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 tbs smooth peanut butter (I use Meridan peanut butter)
  • 1 1/2 tbs raspberry jam ( preferably St. Dalfour Raspberry jam to give you a deeper fruity flavour which isn’t too sweet!)

Instructions:

  1. Add the milk, jam and peanut butter to a blender and blitz until thoroughly combined. Alternatively, whisk ingredients together by hand.
  2. Tip the milk shake into a chilled glass and enjoy.

This recipe can either be kept as a milkshake or warmed up! For those who like a little heat, all you need to do is simply heat the milk mixture in a saucepan until steaming.  I  recommend adding a pinch of salt to the milk right before serving as I find that applying heat intensifies the sweetness of the jam and creaminess of the peanut butter.
