101 Days of Christmas: Peppermint Milkshake

Peppermint Milk Shake {101 Days of Christmas at}

While the holidays bring with them scarves and mittens and wishes for a white Christmas for our family, I know it’s not cold everywhere in December (the shame!). In fact, we actually spent two Christmases in St. George, Utah — a high plains desert in the southwestern corner of the state — after we got married, and there we enjoyed temperatures of 60 degrees for most of the winter.

Hot chocolate and wassail will always be my holiday drinks of choice — even in hotter climates — but this peppermint milkshake is a great alternative for those of you who still want to sip the flavors of Christmas without the added heat of a steaming cup of hot cocoa!

It’s simple to throw together in a blender, making it the perfect drink choice as you decorate the tree or snuggle up to watch a holiday movie.


  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • whipped cream
  • crushed candy canes


Combine ice cream, milk and peppermint in a blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy.

Top with whipped cream and crushed candy canes and serve immediately.

Makes 2 milkshakes.
