Chad and I had a little ice cream date last week, and since going out usually is not an option I made us some milkshakes at home; and we caught up on a few shows on our DVR. If you saw my round up for last week then it is no secret to you how much I love peppermint. Being in the Christmas spirit, I decided to give our milk shakes a peppermint twist! It’s so easy to make and only takes a few
– 3-4 scoops of vanilla ice cream
– 1 ½ cups of milk
– 3-4 crushed peppermints
– 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
– Whip cream for topping (optional)
Add your ice cream and milk into your blender and blend until smooth. If it looks too milky add more ice cream and blend, repeating until you get the right consistency that you desire. Add peppermint extract and candy pieces, and blend for a few seconds more until it is evenly distributed in your shake. Pour in your glass and add some whipped cream for topping! Hope you all enjoy!
