Copycat Chick Fil A Peppermint Milkshake

If I’m being honest, one of my favorite things about the holidays is the incredibly delicious peppermint chocolate chip milkshake from Chick Fil A. After trying it for the first time, I was absolutely hooked and craving it all the time. When the holidays were over, I was heartbroken that I’d have to wait another year for the peppermint shake to come back. It was then that I decided to create a copycat Chick Fil A peppermint milkshake recipe so that I could enjoy this little taste of Christmas whenever I wanted.

Making the peppermint chocolate chip milkshake at home gives you the most bang for your buck and is also a fun activity to do with friends and family during the holidays. All you need is 5 minutes and a few simple ingredients.

A Healthier Peppermint Shake

Peppermint milkshakes are a great treat when I want to indulge during the holidays, but my favorite thing about this milkshake is that you can have the same amazing flavor with a lot less sugar and calories by making just a few simple ingredient swaps. Sugar free peppermints and chocolate chips can be found at your local Walmart.

Usually, I make the copycat Chick Fil A Peppermint milkshake with the no sugar added vanilla Bluebell ice cream, but (if you’re not in the south) I also love the Bryer’s carb smart ice cream that is lower in carbs and sugar. (Ingredient swaps such as the ones that I’ve listed above are great for cutting down on sugar, but always be sure to check the nutrition facts of your ingredients so that you know exactly what is in them and if they meet your specific dietary needs.)

Chick Fil A Peppermint Milkshake: FAQ’s

Can I use candy canes instead of peppermints?

Yes! Candy canes will give you the same peppermint flavor as the mints. The recipe calls for 10 round peppermints, but 4-5 regular sized candy canes will also do the trick.

What kind of milk should I use?

Use your milk of choice when making this recipe. My go-to is unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Any type of milk will work great!

Can I use peppermint ice cream?

Yes! If you want your milkshake to have even more peppermint flavor, you can totally use peppermint ice cream. Depending on your taste buds, you may want to adjust the amount of peppermint candies you add to the shake if you do decide to use peppermint ice cream. However, if you’re like me, the more peppermint flavor, the better!
