Peanut Butter Pretzel Milkshake

Peanut Butter Pretzel Milkshake! Salty Sweet Perfection!

We love milkshakes and this Peanut Butter Pretzel Milkshake is the perfect salty/sweet treat..and can be whipped up in just minutes!

I am so happy to tell you that I am participating in “Milkshake Week” this week!!!


Here’s the details: Julie and Lindsay, who happen to be some of my most favorite people, decided to throw together a fun filled week to celebrate drinkable ice cream.

Seriously inspired idea, ladies.

Anyhow, I decided to play along, because who doesn’t like milkshakes?

ANNND since I am all about the salty/sweet combo I decided to mix some pretzels all up in my milkshake.

I was really wanting to figure out a way to make this a french fry milkshake…but I was afraid crushed up french fries would make mashed potatoes… and yeah, a mashed potato milkshake sounds pretty gnarly.

So I settled on pretzels. And peanut butter.

You’re welcome.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Milkshakes...super easy and the perfect salty/sweet dessert!

This couldn’t be easier…just crush up some pretzels…


And grab some peanut butter…


I squirted a little chocolate sauce on the inside of my glass. Just cause.

Also squirted is a horrible horrible word.


Mix up some vanilla ice cream with the pretzels and peanut butter and you’re good to go!

Top it with a little whipped cream and some more crushed pretzels if you’re feeling fancy.

French fries dipped into milkshakes are the BEST EVER – but yeah, a mashed potato milkshake might not work! 😉 I think that’s okay because *pretzels*?! Yes *please*.

I love the peanut butter/ pretzel/ chocolate combo in my favorite granola bars, but I never thought to add pretzels to a milkshake. Brilliant – thanks for the recipe!

Pretzels would be so good in a sweet milkshake with chocolate and peanut butter! Although I think I would have to add bananas to this as well 😉

I’m still giggling about your chocolate sauce comment. We eat a lot of peanut butter milkshakes – the next ones are definitely going to have pretzels in them. Great idea!
