Easy Peppermint Milkshake Recipe

I have a easy Peppermint Milkshake recipe that is a huge hit at our house!  I love this time of year when we can add candy canes to our recipes because it reminds me of all the fun times we have around the holidays.    Have you tried our homemade Easy Peppermint Cookies yet?  Oh – they are delish!  They are pretty to look at too with the striped Hershey’s kisses on top of the cookies.

Milkshake recipes are super simple.  You can turn milk and ice cream into your favorite milkshake by adding lots of other flavors.  Another favorite is cookies n cream milkshakes.  It’s amazing what a few Oreo cookies will do for your milkshake!  Or what about those popular Girl Scout thin mint cookies!  Oh goodness my mouth is watering just thinking about that one!  This easy Peppermint Milkshake recipe is just as good and all you need is a candy cane!  I love the cold, creamy, milky flavor with a bit of a crunch from the sweet candy cane!

Now if you don’t have one of the milkshake machines like I do you could easily put this in a blender too.  I personally like the hand blender because it stores easily and it’s small.  If you are in the market for one I prefer the Cuisinart Hand Blender because it’s sturdy and very well made.  It’s lasted me many years too.  It’s worth every penny.  I am also a huge fan of the food processor.  If you’ve followed my blog you will know how much I love it.  I seem to talk about it all the time.  It chops everything like beef, veggies, nuts and more!  And again I like the Cuisinart brand.
