If you love bananas and peanut butter, then you will love this shake. The date adds just enough sweetness and a slight caramel flavor; the vanilla makes it extra delicious. I’ve listed the ice cubes as optional because I like this shake both with and without them. Without the ice cubes it’s a little creamier, and with, frostier (though, admittedly, a bit brain freeze inducing). Also, I know I’ve mentioned this before but it bears repeating: this peanut butter is the BEST EVER. Phil and I order the 35 oz jars in bulk because we’re
obsessed hardcore like that.
