Peppermint Shake Love
The first time I took a sip of the peppermint shake I was in love. Even after it was gone from the menu I would often drive thru and ask if they still had them. Some stores have leftover supplies a few months after the promo is gone. But after that…its an entire year before you get to drink one again. So I came up with a solution – make it at home.
What Do I Need To Make A Peppermint Milkshake?
- vanilla ice cream
- candy canes
- semi sweet chocolate
- peppermint extract
How Do I Make A Chick Fil A Peppermint Shake?
- Crush your candy canes into pebble sized piece by pulsing them in a blender.
- Add in ice cream.
- Top with shaved chocolate.
- Pour in peppermint extract.
- Add Milk.
Its as simple as that!
Sometimes I like my shakes as is – I skip the whipped cream and sprinkles. But with this shake I love a dollop of whipped cream, ALWAYS a cherry, and a dusting of crushed candy cane.
When It Comes To Blenders
Of course, any blender will work for this recipe. But I love having a high power blender at home. It is the appliance I use the most, and one I will never be without. For years I purchased cheap blenders that broke often. Since investing in a good blender I haven’t had an issue once. So take my advice and skip the cheap ones and invest in a nice one when you can.
