Decadent Chocolate Shake with a Hint of Peanut Butter

Wanted a shake. I didn't have exactly what was listed on the other recipe, here's how I made it.

1 cup chocolate So Delicious ice cream,
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (Trader Joe's brand)
1 tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup ice (~5 ice cubes from fridge ice maker)
2 tsp peanut butter 
2 Tbsp unsweetened (Dutch) cocoa
1/2 tsp sea salt


  1. Slightly soften the ice cream.
  2. Add 3/4 cup milk to blender or Vitamix.
  3. Add 3/4 of the total amount of ice cream.
  4. Add 2 ice cubes.
  5. Add the 2 tsp of peanut butter.
  6. Blend on med-high. Use stick, if necessary to facilitate blending. With Vitamix or blend off, push down ice cream with stick.
  7. Continue blending until the ingredients get smooth and creamy.
  8. Add in the remaining almond milk, cinnamon, cocoa, chocolate chips, salt and ice.
  9. Blend on high until smooth.
  10. Add in the remaining ice cream (should be about 2 Tbsp)
  11. Blend on low for a nice thickness to occur.
  12. If shake is too thick, add a tad more milk.
  13. For a thicker shake add more ice cream.
  14. Add more ice if you want an icier shake.
  1. Pour into a frosted shake glass and add a straw or long spoon.
  2. Garnish with cocoa powder and cinnamon.
