The Best Peppermint Shake
This Peppermint shake – is simple, quick and delicious! It is one of our favorite holiday treats! A cool drink made from vanilla ice cream, milk, peppermint extract and topped with whipped cream and crushed candy cane pieces! – Oh My ! I could drink this every day.
In the past, I probably would have gone to https://www.chick-fil-a.com or Friendly’s to pick up a peppermint milkshake. However, now that I know how easy it is to grab the stuff at the grocery and whip it up in 5 minutes or less, it is so much quicker.
Remembering my past, making milkshakes at Friendlys or Frisch’s was never my favorite thing to do. Now that I have a ninja blender though, its no trouble at all, it mixes up so quickly.
