Peppermint milkshake

Peppermint milkshakes are fun to serve both kids and adults. Instead of topping the shake with whipped cream, I like to use pink cotton candy and a garnish of edible gold; you can also use crushed peppermint candies, as well.

Deliver Ingredients


  • 8 scoops peppermint ice cream, softened
  • 1 ½ cups whole milk
  • 1 ½ cups ice cubes
  • Pink cotton candy, for garnish
  • Edible gold, for garnish


Combine all the ingredients in a blender on high until smooth. Pour into tall or shot glasses. Serve immediately.

Peppermint Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peppermint Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
