Chocolate-Peanut Butter Milk Shake

I created this recipe this afternoon after reading a recipe about making something similar to a Wendy’s Frosty.  The original recipe called for a banana, but since I didn’t have any, I used peanut butter.  Oh. My. Word.  The flavor was amazing!!  The hubby loved it and couldn’t believe that there is no ice cream in it!  It is a great treat for a hot summer day!

1-1/2 c. almond milk

about 25-30 ice cubes (I used the cubes from my ice maker which are smaller than cubes from a tray)

1 tsp. vanilla

3-4 tbsp. cocoa powder

5 tbsp. sugar

1/2 to 3/4 c. peanut butter

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until ice is crushed.  Makes 4 cups.
