There is something about this time of year and the whole winter season that screams PEPPERMINT to me! I just love peppermint. Mint chocolate chip ice cream is my all time favorite flavor of ice cream. York Peppermint Patties…I could and do, eat them by the handful. Chocolate and mint is totally my jam. So today I am really excited to share this delicious dessert smoothie recipe (aka milkshake) with you that I think you will love! PLUS, this is a great way to use your leftover candy canes up too!

There are many blenders you can use for making smoothies, but I personally own the Vitamix 780 and think it is simply the best. I get smooth, consistent results every single time which is exactly what I want for all my smoothies! You can buy your own Vitamix 780 HERE.
This delicious peppermint shake recipe is easy to make and perfect for the holiday season or all year long whenever you're craving that delicious mint and chocolate combo!
Place chocolate chips in a blender and pulse a few times until the chips are in smaller pieces.
Place 2 candy caned into the blender and pulse a few times until the candy canes are in smaller pieces.
Place milk, ice cream and essential oil or extract into the blender and blend until smooth.
Pour in a glass and top with whipped cream and crushed candy cane pieces.
This recipe is the best way to use left over candy canes! But if you don’t have any candy canes, you can snag some of those hard peppermint candies and use those instead. Both will offer the same delicious flavor that a peppermint shake should!
