One of my favorite parts of summer is when Chick Fil A puts out its peach milkshake. Holy peaches Batman, that thing is like heaven in a styrofoam cup. I mean honestly. I'm an addict.
This year, due to rapid (ahem) pregnancy weight gain, I tried to avoid them. I meant to treat myself once over the summer and wouldn't you know by the time I finally went to do it - it was gone! What the?? That is NOT nice to do to a pregnant lady. The nerve.
So - knowing that I had recently been fortunate enough to stock up on some ACTUAL Georgia peaches, I knew I had to try my hand at making a copycat version of the shake. I felt pretty good about this - I'm sure CFA adds some kind of liquid chemical crack that makes you addicted to it so I knew this would be a better option anyway. I hunted down a recipe and gave it a whirl.
And PS? Georgia peaches? Wow. Sorry, South Carolina - Georgia completely has a leg up on the peach department. There is just no comparison. *ducks head*
Here's what you'll need:
Chick-fil-A CopyCat Peach Milkshake
2 cups French vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup half and half
1/8 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1 1/2 cups fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
Put all ingredients into blender and blend on high for 1 minute.
What's your favorite kind of milkshake?
