Gluten Free Peanut Butter Coconut Milkshake
The Peanut Butter Bash is a monthly dessert challenge which uses peanut butter and a “mystery” ingredient. Each month the “mystery ingredient” changes. (Yes, group members are told about the ingredient in advance.)
June’s challenge: The special mystery ingredient is coconut!

Since June’s Peanut Butter Bash special ingredient is coconut, I was wondering what to do for this month’s post. I did not immediately think of this milkshake or any other yummy item to make. I asked fellow PB Bash bloggers what they were doing and got some ideas.
I decided to make a milkshake. It has been warm here lately so a milkshake sounded great. I still was unsure of the ratio for peanut butter to coconut. I did not want it too strong of either coconut or peanut butter. I wanted a nice blend of both ingredients.
While shopping the other night, I came across the So Delicious Coconut Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Ice Cream. This ice cream is made with coconut milk instead of cow’s milk. It is dairy free, soy free, gluten free, and Kosher Parve. If you are allergic to peanuts or coconut, please find a suitable substitute for this recipe.
This particular Gluten Free Peanut Butter Coconut Milkshake can be made with or without dairy. It depends upon the type of milk you use.
I did use cow’s milk to do this milkshake. You can also use coconut milk, rice milk, soy milk, almond milk, or hemp milk. Use what you are able to consume. If you can have multiple kinds of milk, make several to see which tastes best.
Blender or milkshake machine?
Growing up, my mother used her Hamilton Beach DrinkMaster Drink Mixer to make milkshakes. This is the “home” version of the large commercial ones found in restaurants. Below is a picture of mine, which almost looks like the one my mother has at her place. The “milkshake machine” as we called it growing up now comes in chrome or black as well as the white.
I have used a blender for milkshakes. I have found I still prefer to use my “milkshake machine.” Perhaps as it reminds me of getting milkshakes (“real’ milkshakes made with hard ice cream) at restaurants. I love the metal container with the rest of my shake, just waiting for me to pour into my glass.
