What does Chick-Fil-A put in the Peppermint Milkshake?

Chick-Fil-A’s Peppermint Chip Milkshake takes their hand spun vanilla ice cream and blends perfectly with peppermint bark. Adding in chocolate chips to give it the best chocolate flavor. They top it off with whipped cream and a cherry.

How long does Chick-Fil-A have the Peppermint Milkshake:

Chick-Fil-A has their Peppermint Chip Milkshake only for a limited time. It is available November 14th through January 7th. Make it a holiday tradition and make your favorite milkshake at home.

But if you make it at home, you can enjoy anytime you get that peppermint milkshake craving.

What should I top my Shake with?

We usually top our shake with whipped cream and crushed candy canes. We also love to place a cherry on top. You can easily drizzle with chocolate syrup and add a more chocolate chips.

Recipe Variations and Substitutions:

  • Milkshake Consistency – If your milkshake is too thick, add more milk.  If the milkshake is too thin, then add more ice cream to thicken it up. 
  • Peppermint Candy – We used candy canes in this Chick-Fil-A Peppermint Shake, but you can use just regular peppermint candy.
  • Sprinkles – We like to add in some red and white sprinkles to add to the holiday fun.
  • Change the Ice Cream – We used vanilla ice cream, you can use peppermint ice cream or chocolate ice cream.

How to Serve:

  • Mason jars – We always have a ton of these around and the milkshakes look pretty in them.
  • Tall ice cream glasses -I love these old fashioned glasses. They remind me of what you would find at an ice cream shop.

A Good Blender Recommendation:

Currently, I use a Vitamix and I love it. This blender is an investment as it’s not the cheapest, but it is one investment that does not disappoint.  It will probably be the last blender you ever own. 

If a Vitamix isn’t in your budget currently, then I recommend a Waring professional blender. This blender works well too.  It doesn’t work quite as well as the Vitamix, but they are the next best thing for a much more reasonable cost. 

This holiday treat blends perfectly in one of these blenders.
