Frozen Fluffernutter Martini


When I was a little girl, there were only two kinds of kid-approved sandwiches and both involved peanut butter.  The classic PB&J, of course, and the fluffernutter.  That ingenious combination of sweet marshmallow fluff and salty peanut butter was perfect on its own or with the addition of some sliced bananas.  OK, sometimes there was some chocolate hazelnut spread as well but the fluff was the constant.

I really hadn't eaten either sandwich in years but I happened to find myself with leftover peanut butter from a recent chocolate and PB dessert recipe and a bit of fluff from whoopie pies back in the fall.  Ironically, I didn't even consider making a sandwich but instead I hatched an evil cocktail plan.  You see, I also had a bottle of Smirnoff Fluffed Vodka on hand.  And evil is a fitting description for this drink, let me tell you.  Perfectly balanced and not overly sweet, it goes down way too easily.  Cheers!

For 2 Servings:
4 oz. Marshmallow fluff vodka
1 Banana, frozen
3 Tablespoons peanut butter
3 Tablespoons marshmallow fluff
1/4 Cup milk
Pinch of sea salt
Ice
Whipped cream, for garnish
1 Teaspoon peanut butter thinned out with 1 teaspoon milk, for garnish

Add the vodka, banana, peanut butter, marshmallow fluff, milk and sea salt to a blender.  Fill with ice and blend until all the ice has been crushed.  Pour into two chilled cocktail glasses, garnish with whipped cream and drizzle with the thinned peanut butter.

  1. Oh, my gosh. I think I would have eaten pb sandwiches as a child if my mom had added marshmallow fluff! But instead, I'll just drink this grown up twist instead!!! I think that vodka may be the next liquor store purchase!
