Peppermint Twist

When the month of December rolls around, I always know I will find something special at the grocery store: Peppermint Ice Cream! This Holiday Season I want to put a simple twist on this classic, so I found a recipe for a Peppermint Shake from GoodHousekeeping.com. Sounds delicious, huh?!

Peppermint Shake from azcentral.com's Jaimee Rose

 

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. In blender, blend candies until finely crushed.
  2. Add ice cream, milk, and peppermint extract and blend until mixture is smooth and frothy.
  3. Pour into 2 tall glasses.

To add an extra touch…

  • Blend in a tablespoon or so of chocolate chips.
  • Garnish the rim of the glass with crushed peppermint (shown in picture above).
  • Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
  • Stick a candy cane into the glass for decoration.

Love food. Love self. Love life.
