The PB & J Shake from the 50’s Prime Time Cafe in the Hollywood Studios is a super-simple Disney recipe… and delicious too!  Did you know that you can order anything from the 50’s Prime Time Cafe menu from the bar at the Tune In Lounge next door?  It is a great option if you don’t have a reservation for 50’s Prime Time or if you are in the Hollywood Studios by yourself and you don’t want to sit at a table alone.

I was recently in the Hollywood Studios with my baby girl and it was so hot I knew that only a cold treat would hit the spot.  I decided to order one of the famous PB&J milkshakes from the bar at the Tune In Lounge.  I got it in a to-go cup and it was very rich and yummy.  It wasn’t too peanut-buttery… it almost had a chocolate taste although there is no chocolate in it.



Last night I decided to recreate this shake at home and it was really easy.  It only requires four ingredients.  Milk (I used skim), Vanilla Ice Cream (I used light ice cream), Peanut Butter and Grape Jelly.


First, take 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter and 3 Tablespoons grape jelly.  Mix them together.


Then load up your blender with 3 cups of vanilla ice cream and 1/4 cup of milk.

Next, top it with your peanut butter and jelly mixture.
Then blend away….  and enjoy!!
This shake tasted just like I the original shake at Walt Disney World.  The recipe made a generous amount for two adults (after taking that picture I split it into two glasses, and added a little bit that was left in the blender).  I am sure that Disney uses whole milk and full fat ice cream in their shake, but this lighter version with skim milk and light ice cream tasted just as rich and satisfying. 
Oh, and I don’t know if any 50’s Prime Time Cafe fans will notice, but take a look at the kitchen counter in the photos.  When I made this I was staying in my In-Laws’ 1950’s lake cottage and my counter tops were the exact same pattern as the tables in the 50’s Prime Time Cafe!  Their tables are grey and my counters are yellow, but it is fun for a Disney fan like myself.
