Make Ahead and Storage:

Can I Make Milkshakes Ahead of Time?

It is not suggested that milkshakes be made ahead of time. Even when re-frozen it just never really has the same texture as serving it right away

What is in a Chick-fil-A peppermint Milkshake?

Their milkshakes are vanilla ice cream based and peppermint flavored with white chocolate bits and peppermint candy – possibly peppermint bark

When does Chick-fil-A sell the Peppermint Milkshake?

This is a seasonal milkshake with a short window. Typically Chick-fil-A starts selling these milkshakes in November through the Christmas and holiday season and stops in January

Tips and Tricks:

  • peppermint bark is typically sold around the holidays. Andes mints make a great version of peppermint bark that you can find around the holidays
  • I think that a soft peppermint stick or soft peppermint candies are the best options for this shake. If you can’t find them, then you can use regular candy canes
  • if you can find peppermint ice cream in your freezer section, then feel free to substitute that for the vanilla ice cream and omit the peppermint extract
