I used to work near a healthy takeout restaurant in Boston's Back Bay called b.good. They used to make a delicious chocolate peanut butter milk shake called the Drunk Elvis. Any suggestions as to how one might make such a shake at home? I've been craving one since this morning's healthy but non-chocolate smoothie. –- Susanna, MA
Hey, I know that joint. I wrote a little piece about it back in 2004 when it first opened.
So, since that shake sounded so good, and I seriously doubted my ability to crack their code, I asked the owners for the recipe. They were happy to oblige. When co-owner Jon Olinto sent it over, he added, “I can only hope that before you post the recipe, you'll test it at home and vomit all over yourself.”
Thanks, Jon. I surely did. And it was awesome.
6 oz. milk
6 scoops non-fat vanilla frozen yogurt (about 1½ cups)
3 Tbsp. Teddie all-natural, smooth peanut butter
3 Tbsp. Hershey's chocolate syrup
Blend in blender until smooth. Serves 2. Oh, who am I kidding? Served 1. (Garnish at your own discretion.)
