Disney’s Peanut Butter And Jelly Milkshake

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

If you grew up eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, then not only are you likely to still be eating these even throughout your adult life when no one is watching, but you’re also surely going to want to try this epic recipe for Disney Parks’ Peanut Butter & Jelly Milk Shake.  If you were lucky enough to visit 50’s Prime Time Cafe at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, then you’re also likely to recognize this dreamy treat that takes your favorite childhood sandwich to the next level, turning it into the milkshake that you always wanted.  This is the real Disney magic. 

For those that have visited the Disney cafe know that it offers a unique vibe – making you feel as though you’re living in your favorite 1950s shows with clips playing in the background and serving some iconic American dishes, such as the peanut butter and jelly milkshake that you can now make yourself in the comfort of your own home! This time around, there’s no need to beg your parents to take you on holiday or let you eat sugar, the ball is in your court. 

You’re also likely to already have all of the required ingredients for the recipe in your home since it’s made up of only peanut butter, jelly, milk, and ice cream.  It’s most recommended to make it with vanilla ice cream, and the jelly should be grape or jelly – but it never harmed anyone to mix things up. Sliced strawberries also work well if you don’t have jelly at home, because let’s be real – adulting is all about only cooking with what you already have.  So whenever you’re having some nostalgic cravings, this shake surely has your name all over it.  And for the full ‘50s Prime Time Cafe experience, you’re going to want to pair it with some fried chicken.
