Chocolate Peppermint Shakes


Don't you just love peppermint especially around the holidays?! I have to admit that I'm a sucker for peppermint candy canes, peppermint bark, peppermint scented lotions and soaps, and peppermint flavored hot chocolate. Last night, our family enjoyed chocolate peppermint shakes and they were a hit! These shakes would be perfect after a day of sledding or at a holiday party or enjoying while reading Christmas stories. Plus, these shakes are so easy that the whole family can help! 

Chocolate Peppermint Shakes
equal parts or scoops of chocolate ice cream and peppermint ice cream (about three scoops of each) 
(peppermint ice cream is available at most grocery stores around the holidays)
1 1/2 cups of milk

In a blender, blend until the ice cream is well mixed and at a consistency you enjoy. 
Top your shake with whipped cream!

  3. I used to make a protein shake like this that tasted like thin mints! Anything minty and chocolates is good in my books. Thanks for the reminder about it and for posting this on the fantastic Friday link party!
