Boozy Peppermint White Chocolate Milkshakes

Ice cream and candy and booze! Oh my! There really isn’t anything not to love about these Boozy White Chocolate Peppermint Milkshakes.

Have you tried the new white chocolate peppermint LINDOR truffles? Smooth white chocolate is hugged by the crunch of a peppermint studded white chocolate shell; they are just the greatest little balls of Christmas magic. They’re deliciously addicting on their own, but even more magical when blended into a milkshake.

Last month I won a Vitamix from the kind folks over at in a contest to curate a collection of delicious holiday dessert recipes. You can see my collection here and download the Foodie App for iPad here which features 40 new seasonal recipes each month. I was beyond ecstatic to receive my gorgeous CIA Professional Series Vitamix and, like any good foodie would, immediately started blending everything in sight.

I started out blending responsibly – blending fresh juices and protein packed morning smoothies. But before we knew it, I had discovered that you absolutely cannot go wrong when throwing ice cream and alcohol in the blender. I had picked up some Fior di Latte – a white chocolate grappa – on our cruise last month that was just begging to become something decadent. Our first milkshakes of OREOs, vanilla ice cream and Fior di Latte were just the tip of the iceberg of what was to come. Ice cream, booze, cookies and candy, the possibilities were endless!

By far my absolute greatest creation to date was when I decided to throw a few white chocolate peppermint LINDOR truffles into the mix. The white chocolate grappa and white chocolate truffles with a hint of peppermint made the merriest of winter treats. I don’t know that I can top these Boozy White Chocolate Peppermint Milkshakes, but I’ll take one for the team and try. Just promise not to judge the ratio of healthy smoothies to milkshakes that are created in our new Vitamix!
