Chocolate Peppermint Milkshake - a quick and delicious ice cream milkshake whips up in minutes! #SlowChurnedSmiles

There’s a saying, “Laughter is the music of the soul.”  And at our house, we laugh everyday – thanks in no small part to my husband Jack who really likes to keep things fun around our home!  In addition to Jack being a great cook, he also has a great sense of humor – and even the most common of things are an opportunity to share some everyday smiles!

I’ve mentioned before, that we recently bought a new blender.  Among its great features, it has a “smoothie” setting which makes the blender cycle through several different blending speeds such as short pulses and fast frothing.

One day, while making a breakfast smoothie, Jack started to do a dance to the blender’s beat – robot and freeze dancing during the short pulses and then a crazy-fast dance during the frothing!  It made all of us laugh – but especially our 6-year-old – and so now, every time we make a smoothie or milkshake in the blender (like this recipe for our Chocolate Peppermint Milkshake), we all start to dance and boogie around the kitchen!  (I tried to convince Jack to allow me to take a video of him dancing so I could include it here, but no luck…)

Dancing around the kitchen is just one family ritual that makes us smile – and another is enjoying some delicious Edy’s Slow Churned Ice Cream.  Whether you’re blending it up into a delicious chocolate peppermint milkshake like this recipe, or enjoying a homemade ice cream sundae – you can feel good about serving Edy’s to your family. With wholesome ingredients like nonfat milk that’s churned together slowly, you get super rich and creamy ice cream with 1/3 fewer calories than regular ice cream!

      LOL Simone – I’d say a reenactment is most likely (so there’s no proof) – especially if the kids are around! Hope to see you soon!

        Do you recommend to add peaches to this recipe?

        • Martha wrote:

          Hi Ruth – we have a peach and pineapple smoothie recipe that might work better! I personally wouldn’t mix the peppermint ice cream with peaches – but vanilla would be delicious!

    When I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, I would go to our local ice cream parlor (that has been around for 100 years) and get a “Peppermint Hot Fudge” Milkshake once a week. Never had one before that, haven’t had one since she was born, but that might change!!!! Thank you for posting!!!
