I recently entered a milkshake phase. Dangerous territory, I know. Every time we have guests over, I make a different milkshake. Most of them are spiked. It’s SO fun. I thought I already had a favorite recipe (cookie butter + whiskey milkshake), but this one stole first place for sure.
Am I bragging too much about my milkshake? I hope not. But if I am, you’ll just have to try it to confirm whether or not it lives up to this hype!
Chocolate ice cream
Milk (of any kind, I use almond milk)
In your Vitamix blender, combine 1 cup chocolate ice cream, half a cup of milk, 1.5 ounces peppermint schnapps, 1.5 ounces coffee flavored liqueur and one whole candy cane. Blend and serve!
I garnished mine with a peppermint rim, another candy cane and a little whipped cream.
The number one key to making great cocktails at home is to always measure your alcohol. When people just pour in however much “seems right”, it’s usually way too much, which makes your drinks less tasty because the proportions are all off.
As a general rule, I use 1.5 ounces for a small glass and 3 ounces for a tall glass. Before I started going by this, my drinks were really hit or miss (too strong, too weak, etc.), but now they are much more consistent!
We have been using it twice a day for the past month. We’ve made salad dressings, sauces, soups and smoothies. I’m really glad we got one before I started on my cookbook recipes because it’s a game changer!
It leans more toward the chocolate flavors than the coffee. If you want a more intense coffee flavor, I recommend subbing the chocolate ice cream for coffee ice cream.
Are you planning a party? You definitely need to whip up a few of these. And don’t forget to listen to this song while you’re doing it. It elevates the whole experience by like 10 points.
