Easy Blender Mint Milkshakes

Making a milkshake with your blender is an easy way to have these yummy treats right at home. You don’t have to go to a restaurant or a drive-through just to get a creamy and delicious milkshake.

One of the great things about a mint milkshake is that although it’s thick and rich, the mint makes it deliciously refreshing! 

With just a few simple ingredients, these mint milkshakes are so easy to make. Making these drinks is also fun! As soon as I pull the blender out, my whole family gets excited!

How to Make Mint Milkshakes

First gather your ingredients – 

  • Chocolate Sauce – Chocolate sauce is a staple for all kind of desserts including sundaes and to top brownies. It will generally thicken when chilled, and will thin our when it’s warmed up, so I like to use chocolate sauce straight from the refrigerator for this recipe.
  • Mint Chip Ice Cream – Mint chip ice cream is really the basis of this entire recipe. There are many different brands with slightly different flavors. I generally look for a mint chocolate ice cream that’s more subtly minty for this recipe. 
  • Whole Milk  – Whole milk milk as close as possible to the way it comes from the cow. Different milks (skim and 2%) have some of the fat removed. Whole milk is the creamiest and richest ingredient option for milkshakes. 
  • Whipped cream – Whether you like whipped cream from the can, or to whip your own (whipping cream, powdered sugar, and a pinch of salt) – whipped cream is a perfect topping for milkshakes.
  • Cherry – Is there anything more iconic on a milkshake than the cherry on top? Marachino cherries are the most traditional type for desserts and drinks. It’s the perfect topper for this recipe.

Once you have all your ingredients, use the following method to make your milkshake:

  • Prep – To prepare your glass, pour some chocolate sauce onto a plate. Place your milkshake glass upside down on the plate to create a chocolate rim around the glass. 
  • Milkshake making blender method – Spoon ice cream and milk into your blender. Blend on low until smooth and creamy. If you notice ice cream getting stuck, use a pulsing action to dislodge.
  • Milkshake making stick blender method – Spoon ice cream into your milkshake glass and then pour milk over it. Submerge your stick blender into the the mixture and turn it on low. Blend until smooth.
  • Milkshake making jar method – Spoon ice cream into a jar with lid, using a spoon, mix ice cream until smooth and creamy. Once soft and stirrable, pour milk over the mixture. Screw lid onto jar and shake until blended.
  • Top with whipped cream and a cherry to complete your milkshake!

Tips and Tricks to Perfect Mint Milkshakes

Try putting the glasses you’re going to use for the milkshakes in the freezer before making these, chilled glasses keep the milkshake thick longer and also is a nice touch! 

Serve these milkshakes as a dessert or special treat! They’re festive and fun.

Homemade milkshakes are a great way to help teach kiddos how to cook. With simple ingredients and a fun recipe, they’ll start to pick it up fast!


Can I substitute milk?

Yes! If you want to use 2% or skim, you can do that, too. However, whole milk will make a thicker and creamier milkshake.

Will this taste like a fast-food shake?

Many fast food restaurants (Arby’s, McDonald’s, Chic-fil-A) all have seasonal mint milkshake offerings. Usually these places will have a milkshake maker and use a mix. I prefer the taste and consistency of a home-blended milkshake.
