Two Sisters Times Two, Serial #19 and Fluffernutter Milkshake

Posted on

Some of you have heard of the “fluffernutter” sandwich–peanut butter and marshmallow fluff between two slices of square white bread.

Fluffernutters and I have a relationship that dates back–well, let’s just say a long, long time. It’s the original high-energy snack, before there was such a thing as a “high-energy snack.” It pulled me through many a double shift at work or an unplanned late-nighter, not to mention those afternoon swoons in grade school or the long bus ride home.

This fluffernutter mix is finding its way into many places other than between slices of bread. I’ve heard of it being used in ice cream, cookies, even oatmeal (for Heaven’s sake!).

And now, exclusively on Reading and Recipes (not really exclusively–check out the credit site–but we can pretend for dramatic effect), we can add milkshake to the list of peanut butter/marshmallow fluff conquered territories. Our Fluffernutter Milkshake will simultaneously cool you off and heat you up, fill you full of energy and make you want to kick back and take a nap. In short, it does everything this unique mix of protein and sugar is supposed to do, all in a drinkable form that’s simple to throw together and goes down oh-so-easy.

So mix up a batch and share it with a friend, then take a jog around the block and a swim in the pool just before you crash on the couch.
