A smooth peppermint milkshake is the perfect winter drink you and your family will rave about! It’s basically everything you love about winter in a frosty glass!

 

A creamy peppermint milkshake?  I’ll take two, please!

With Christmas just weeks away, we’re ushering in the new season with one of your all-time favorite winter drink recipes – the Peppermint milkshake. 

What really brings this recipe together is Hudsonville’s Limited Edition Peppermint Stick ice cream.  Traditional candy cane pieces are mixed into vanilla ice cream to create this magical, minty, holiday favorite.

This delicious peppermint shake recipe can easily be made with or without alcohol. 

If you are entertaining this holiday season, and want to turn your peppermint shake into a boozy cocktail, we recommend adding RumChata. The peppermint flavor and the creamy rum come together perfectly for the best Christmas cocktail.  

Top them with all your favorite fixins’ including whipped cream, warm chocolate sauce, salted caramel sauce, crushed candy canes, crushed peppermint and so much more!  

Did we mention they taste exactly like the Chick Fil A peppermint shake?  If you love them as much as my house does, this is the perfect at-home copycat recipe. 

Below, we are sharing a number of variations you can choose to suit your taste buds!

WHAT IS RUMCHATA? 

RumChata is a cream liqueur that uses five times distilled Caribbean rum and real dairy cream with natural cinnamon, vanilla, sugar and other secret flavors.

Does Rumchata need to be refrigerated?  Once opened RumChata can remain at room temperature and will keep its great taste.

 

ARE THERE ANY SUBSTITUTIONS FOR RUNCHATA? 

Absolutely!  If RumChata isn’t your thing, there are a number of delicious substitutions.  Here are just a few of our favorites: 

 

 

ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO MAKE A PEPPERMINT MILKSHAKE

While we made this recipe with creamy peppermint ice cream and chocolate chips, there are a number of ways you can vary this milkshake recipe.   Here are just a few of the ingredients we like to add or replace.

  • Vanilla Ice Cream – If for any reason you cannot locate peppermint ice cream, you can also use vanilla ice cream with peppermint extract, peppermint chocolate or crushed peppermint.  
  • Irish cream or coffee liqueur – If you don’t like the taste of rum, feel free to replace with a Irish cream or coffee liqueur.  Be sure to taste before serving and add any additional flavors to enhance the recipe. 
  • Dark chocolate chips or white chocolate – Prefer dark chocolate chips or white chocolate?  We have tried both and they taste delicious!

WHO MAKES THE BEST PEPPERMINT ICE CREAM? 

Our family loves Hudsonville Ice Cream over almost any other brand.  We fell in love with Hudsonville Ice Cream several years ago and haven’t looked back since.  They are the only brand of ice cream we purchase.   

They are a Midwest brand north in Michigan.  Their facility are right near their farms because they believe having their cows closer means fresher milk in their ice cream.  Sometimes I even add a small scoop of their Limited Edition Peppermint Stick ice cream to my coffee or hot chocolate for that added wow factor!
