Delicious 3 Ingredient Peppermint Shake Recipe

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post by Belfonte. However, all opinions are my own.

There is something about the holidays that just has me craving peppermint. I am always trying new recipes that are easy to make with high-quality ingredients. I have found the best of both with this delicious 3 ingredient peppermint shake recipe.

Easy & Delicious

I wanted to create a recipe that was easy to make and looks impressive. This will be my go-to this year when celebrating with family and friends. I want to make sure everyone knows just how thankful I am for them and the perfect way is with a tasty treat and time together.

Ingredients

You only need 3 ingredients to make this delicious peppermint shake. You can also top it with whip cream for a final touch and one more ingredient.

The following ingredients make 1 serving. If you have more people just double, triple, etc.

  • 1 cup Ice Cream – For this recipe I used Belfonte vanilla ice cream. You can have fun with the ice cream flavors and mix it up to whatever your taste buds desire. I like a classic vanilla ice cream, but you could try cookies and cream, chocolate, etc.
  • 1/2 Cup Milk – Again, you can mix up the milk you use, I prefer Belfonte skim milk so that is what I used in the recipe and it turned out so good.
  • 1 tablespoon Candy Canes- I decided to crush up candy canes. For me, it was more festive and fun to use candy canes but any peppermint candy works!

Optional Ingredients To Style Up Your Shake

  • Optional (whip cream)– I highly recommend you top your shake with whip cream and more candy cane pieces. You’ll love the final look.
  • Chocolate Bark – I used melted chocolate bark around the rim of my glass to add a peppermint touch.

Supplies

  • Measuring cups: 1 cup and 1/2 cup – These will be used for the ice cream and the milk.
  • Tablespoon – Used to measure out your peppermint pieces, but you could also just sprinkle them in based on your liking.
  • Blender – This is your key tool to make this milkshake.
  • Baggie + Kitchen roller – You can get creative with how you crush your candy canes into little pieces but I used a baggie and a roller. It worked really well and my candy canes worked perfectly.
  • Small bowl – If you decide to add the chocolate touch you’ll need a small bowl to melt the chocolate.
  • Straw – Top this treat off with a festive straw.

Instructions

Don’t worry I know the holidays are busy so you will be able to mix this shake up quickly and enjoy it!

  1. Gather all of your ingredients and supplies. Having everything out and ready will make your recipe quick and easy!
  2. Crush your peppermint into little pieces. If you choose to buy it already crushed that works, too. But, if not I used a kitchen roller and put my candy canes in a clear plastic baggie.
  3. Use your blender. Mix 1 cup Belfonte vanilla ice cream and 1/2 cup Belfonte milk. Add 1 tablespoon of peppermint candy pieces and blend.
  4. Pour and Enjoy. Pour your shake into a glass and enjoy or continue and make it even more festive!
  5. Melt a piece of chocolate bark. Dip your glass rim into the melted chocolate and then dip into crushed candy pieces. Make sure to do this before you add your shake.
  6. Top with whip cream. Now that you have added your chocolate park and peppermint around the rim. Make sure your shake it poured in and top with whip cream.
  7. Add a straw and enjoy! I used a red and white straw to go with the peppermint look. You can also eat with a spoon!
