To know or not to know: that is the big question when it comes to finding out your baby’s gender. Long before I was pregnant, I knew that I did not want to know the baby’s gender. I loved the idea of having it be a surprise after going through labor. And on the flip side, my husband always knew he would want to find out the gender. Ultimately, he agreed that waiting would be fun and he was mostly on board with this decision. But, then I had a change of heart. After looking at furniture and thinking about preparing for the baby, I decided I wanted specific things, so there was no other option. My desire to plan began to outweigh my desire for a surprise. My only stipulation was that we’d get the results in an envelope from the doctor, and open it together in a memorable way.

After the appointment, my husband and I headed to Jennifer’s Pharmacy, an adorable old-fashioned-like pharmacy with a soda fountain where one can enjoy a sandwich and a milkshake. Since milkshakes and smoothies have been the one thing that I’ve consistently craved during my pregnancy, I thought it would be fun to go to Jennifer’s for our gender reveal. We gave the ladies who were working the counter our envelope and asked them to make us milkshakes, either blue or pink, based on the results. We turned our backs to them and sat in anticipation as the ladies had a grand ol’ time telling us that they knew and we didn’t know! When the milkshakes were ready, we turned around to see baby blue shakes: IT’S A BOY!

In honor of my pregnancy craving and gender reveal, I’m sharing my favorite milkshake recipe: Peanut Butter Banana. The simple combo of creamy peanut butter and banana is something I can’t get enough of, and then blended with frozen yogurt or creamy ice cream means pure delight.
