Reese Is the Word!
BTW (we're very into abbreviations today), "PBCG" stands for "Peanut Butter Candy Goodness." Vanilla + peanut butter is perhaps the most underrated flavor combo of all time; why shouldn't it have its own blended drink?

Ingredients:
15 pieces Reese's Pieces candy, divided
1 1/2 tsp. fat-free non-dairy powdered creamer (like the kind by Coffee-mate)
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda)
1/2 cup light vanilla soymilk
1/2 cup fat-free vanilla ice cream (like Breyers Fat Free)
1 tsp. reduced-fat creamy peanut butter, room temperature
1 cup crushed ice or 5 - 7 ice cubes
Optional topping: Fat Free Reddi-wip 

Directions:
Place 5 candy pieces in a sealable bag and roughly crush. Set aside.

In a tall glass, combine creamer and sweetener with 1 tbsp. hot water. Stir to dissolve. Add soymilk, stir, and transfer to a blender.

Add the 10 remaining candy pieces and all other ingredients to the blender, and blend at high speed until completely mixed.

Pour mixture into the tall glass and gently stir in the crushed candy (reserving some of the candy if you plan to add whipped topping). Top with Reddi-wip, if using, and sprinkle with reserved candy pieces. Dig in!

Peanut Butter Candy Milkshake, Average
Peanut Butter Candy Milkshake, Average

We Got Chills...
You pretty much can't go wrong combining ice cream with peanut butter... flavor-wise, at least. From a calorie standpoint, the combo can be a LOT riskier. Each ingredient tends to be high in fat and calories to begin with -- combine 'em and you're in double trouble. And don't think the danger doesn't apply when you're dealing with a different form of peanut butter -- like bite-sized candy pieces -- and sipping the combo through a straw! We love a good milkshake, but most versions are heavy enough WITHOUT the addition of candy chunks. And while the stats below represent a reasonably sized treat without whipped cream, there are many shakes out there that are FAR worse. So if you crave a sippable version of the Reese's-n-cream combo, do yourself a favor... DON'T get one from an ice cream shop; DO make our super-delicious PBCG Shake. Mmmmmm...
