Healthy Peanut Butter Apple Milkshakes

There are some days where I’m legitimately excited to bake all day.  I look forward to the grocery shopping experience, I’m excited to spend time in the kitchen, I want to get all of my ingredients and measuring spoons out on the counter.

And there are days where I just want to enter the kitchen to get no-effort-involved, pre-made food that literally takes less than 5 seconds to prepare.  Today is one of “those” days.

I would normally grab an actual apple, slice it up, and dip it in some peanut butter, but I’ve been avoiding the grocery store for the last week or so.  I just went over my finances and may or may not have gone over my grocery budget.  For the last two months.  EHEM.  Anyways…  So I’m cracking down and using ingredients I already have in my pantry.

Today, I was in the mood for something sweet (like always), and I was definitely feeling the peanut butter groove baby (again, like always).  But I also wanted something super quick and easy, because I’m a lazy butt.  I took out my blender, almond milk and peanut flour, then I found some unsweetened applesauce in the back corner of my pantry.

Ooooo, I know.  Peanut Butter Apple Milkshakes!  And BOOM.  There you have it, folks.

  1. The nutrition info on this recipe is just plain wrong – the one cup of unsweetened applesauce alone is 23 g of sugar plus the natural sugars in the other ingredients – how did you come up with only 6 grams of sugar???? 

  2. Ok.  Just found your page and you crack me up.  Love it!  Im currently trying to get my family on a gluten free vegan diet.  Thank you so much for the help <3 <3 <3

  3. Literally one of my fave combos ever 🙂
