There’s something about peanut butter that rekindles childhood memories. It takes me back to good ‘ole days where scarcity of money didn’t hinge us from indulging into a good PB sandwich.

Peanut butter has come a long way ever since the sandwich phase. From smoothies to milkshakes, cookies or cakes – it never fails to invoke the inner child in me 😀

In fact, its a shake that I need to down almost immediately after returning from very long travels. Its cozy and so welcoming. Yes, peanut butter have that effect on me.

I can never ever ever get enough of your photography. The shake looks GORGEOUS! I wish strawberries were available in India throughout the year 🙁

PS: I love peanut butter in my sandwich along with some honey and chocolate chips *swoon*

Peanut butter it is not popular in Italy. I remember when my best friend showed me a jar of peanut butter she got from her american Uncle. I was a little child and could not believe that spread was made of peanuts. Now, like you, I use it for my smoothies. Unfortunately last time I bought a slightly salty version that does not fit with any smoothie. What’s in your peanut butter?

Kiran you take the best pictures. I actually didn’t like PB growing up, I just hated peanuts, nuts in general. Nowadays, I have PB every single morning for breakfast with banana, most days. This looks really comforting and healthy!
