Sorry, I was talking to my shake, not you. No offense.
Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? And that the third Sunday of July is National Ice Cream Day? No worries. Me neither. According to my Google research, in 1984 while I was proudly wearing neon, watching Ghostbusters, istening to “Like a Virgin” on a cassette tape, and waking me up before you go go, President Reagan issued a proclamation hailing July as National Ice Cream Month.
Thank you President Reagan.

I also did not know. I don’t even think in Italy we have a Gelato day. I must check it out!
Let’s party…Let’s rave!
Let’s party, Emanuele! 🙂
Medha @ Whisk & Shout

Thanks Medha! It was!
Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice
Oh peanut butter cookie milkshake?! YES! This sounds amazing, Rachelle! Such a perfect shake for the summer. Love the cookie crunch in here!
Thanks Gayle! You can’t go wrong with peanut butter in my book!
You know, people hate on Reagan, but the man loved jelly beans, declared ketchup a veggie (or was that Bush?), and loved on PB. You’ve gotta respect that. This shake is pretty much where my happy place lives forever!
Mir, you speak the truth! I totally forgot about the jelly beans! I’m not sure who did the ketchup thing. 🙂
Kathy @ Beyond the Chicken Coop
I like a whole month just dedicated to ice cream! Woo-Hoo! A decadent shake is just the way to begin the celebration!
I totally agree, Kathy!
Linda @ Veganosity
Thank you President Reagan! And thank you Rachelle, I’m going to make this with coconut or almond ice cream.
Awesome! I’m sure either one would be delicious!

karrie @ Tasty Ever After
I knew President Reagan did something good while in office. You go Ronnie! I’m making this recipe ASAP because 1) it’s awesome 2) it’s a great excuse to buy Nutter Butter cookies again after not eating them in F-O-R-E-V-E-R (probably 1984). Yay me! Thanks Rachelle!
LOL! You gotta love President Reagan and Nutter Butters!
Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary
You never cease to crack me up, Rachelle! Your blog is ALWAYS the place I know I can turn to when I need a little cheer and some damn good eats (or drinks of course)! Let’s talk about this milkshake for a second. Peanut butter cookie? Umm- yes. I will NEED two. One for both hands. Please and thank you. 🙂 we can listen to a little Madge as you whip me together one (u can spike mine)… when we are neighbors!! (2 hours away neighbors, but who’s counting? Not me!) Cheers my sweets! Xo
Ok. Thank you so much for me cracking you up. I crack myself up sometimes, but I don’t think that counts. And OMG! I CAN’T WAIT FOR US TO BE NEIGHBORS! I’m sorry – didn’t mean to shout, but I’m totally excited! And I will spike yours and mine while turning on Madge! 🙂
Cali @ Cali's Cuisine
Yes – Thank you President Regan! Love your creation! I remember Nutter Butter cookies to be a bit salty sweet, they must be a perfect addition to a peanut butter cookie shake!
Good memory! They are salty and sweet! Thanks Cali!
Jess @ Flying on Jess Fuel
Oh my. I definitely want this shake to be MY lover. I’m drooling over here! I would say though that bourbon is NOT optional. It’s a must! <3
LOL! Bourbon is never optional over here Jess!

OMG! I’m totally with you on the nostalgia!
