Spike’s crazy shake, a giveaway, and a winner

Spike's pretzel shake
Note: this drawing is now closed. First, the winner of the giveaway for a copy of 101 Blender Drinks is… Sook from My Fabulous Recipes. Congratulations. Speaking of blender drinks, I’m a total pretzel addict, so when I saw Spike Mendelsohn’s recipe and video for a shake made with Snyder’s Peanut Butter Pretzels, I had to try it. By the way, Spike has a new book out, and it has a lot of great shakes, but not this recipe. And in case you’re nearby a TV, Spike will be on Good Morning America on Memorial Day. And if you live in the U.S. or Canada and want to be entered in a drawing for a copy of The Good Stuff Cookbook, just post a comment.

Yes, you’re seeing right. The rim of the glass is coated in peanut butter and then the crushed up pretzel snacks. Have I mentioned I love peanut butter?

The shake is also made with the crushed up pretzel snacks, plus milk and vanilla ice cream. I added some nutella (amazing!) and you can spike it (get it, Spike…) with a little creme de cacao if you’d like. I’d drink it fast though, because the pretzel bits will get too mushy after a while. Happy Memorial Day!

  1. Congrats to Sook on winning the book. She is a sweetie-pie and I love all her recipes.The crazy shake looks crazy-good. I am nuts about peanut butter or any nut-butter for that matter. My favorite brand of peanut butter is "Naturally more" with flax seeds.Have a great (long) weekend.Yes, I would love to win a copy of that book.

  3. Cool idea with the peanut butter and pretzels! But have to admit this shake gives me some inner turmoil – the OCD in me says "too messy" but my stomach is saying "give it to me!". I have a feeling my stomach will win 😉

  4. yeah, i am dangerous around peanut-better too. esp like pb&cos "white chocolate wonderful" i think it would be unreal in a shake like this.
