Peanut Butter—got milk?

Peanut butter has been an important ingredient in the snacking world for over a century. Crunchy or smooth, peanut butter is a smile-inducing snack. (Rather, you smile at the thought, as that peanut butter will keep your mouth too tightly shut between bites to actually smile.) 

Which is why you should always enjoy sticky peanut butter with a glass of milk. 

(Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr history buffs, please take note.) 

Whether it’s a PB&J with a glass of milk or creating a filling snack made with peanut butter and dairy, they’re a winning pair. Here are some peanut butter and milk snacks to inspire you to enjoy more of these two foods. 

Why not combine peanut butter and milk into a smoothie you can enjoy any time of the day, at-home or on-the-go? This Peanut Butter Cup Protein Smoothie uses chocolate milk with peanut butter and tangy Greek yogurt for a must-have peanut butter snack.  

But once you have a peanut butter and milk drink, that means you can pair more of these snacks with it!  

Paired with a peanut butter smoothie or a classic glass of cold milk, there are more snacks perfect for peanut butter lovers. Combine your milk and peanut butter with yogurt, warm spices like cinnamon and brown sugar, and sweet dried fruit for muffins to snack on all week long. (But perhaps not as long as you think. That drizzled glaze will have you reaching for seconds.) For an equally tasty snack in a third of the time, make a whip with peanut butter, honey, and yogurt perfect for dipping your choice of fruit or sliced vegetables. 

And for those who need something even more indulgent tasting, prepare peanut butter and chocolate ice cream. With a bowl of this no-churn option, you can complete a day full of peanut butter and milk-paired snacks. 

So whether you are looking for ways to celebrate National Peanut Butter Day or you are simply a lover of peanut butter with a glass of milk, there are plenty of recipes to try.
