Our Chick-fil-A copycat peach milkshake recipe is made with fresh, juicy peaches. This homemade version is so easy to whip up in your blender this summer! Kids will love this delicious way to cool off.
- 2 cups fresh peaches, peeled and diced (roughly 6; 460g)
- 1 cup fresh peaches, peeled and chopped (roughly 3; 230g)
- Peach peels from the 9 peaches
- 1/3 cup peach nectar (80 ml)
- 8 scoops vanilla bean ice cream, such as Breyer's or Blue Bunny (400g)
- pinch of turmeric
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (120 ml)
- 2 maraschino cherries with stems
- Peel: Peel, pit, and chop the peaches. Measure out 2 cups of large chunks and 1 cup finely diced peaches.
- Puree: Put the peach peels in the blender and puree with a little peach nectar. You'll want 1 1/2 cups of puree for two milkshakes or 2/3 cup of puree for one milkshake.
- Blend: Place the pureed peach peels, vanilla ice cream, peach nectar, and 2 cups of diced peaches in a blender and blend until thick and combined. If you have a less powerful blender, you'll want to divide the ingredients in half and make one milkshake, then repeat to make the second milkshake.
- Add Chunks: Stir in the chopped peaches to add additional chunks.
- Whipped Cream: Whip the cream with a hand blender or a whisk, adding a touch of sugar or vanilla as desired. Spoon or pipe the whipped cream on top of the milkshake.
- Garnish: Top the milkshake with a maraschino cherry with a stem and one or two red straws. Enjoy right away or place in the freezer for 20-30 minutes so it doesn't melt.
- Use ice cream with a strong vanilla bean flavor that is frozen hard and not melted.
- Add more ice cream or freeze it for 30 minutes to thicken the drink.
- After it's blended, stir in more chunks of diced peaches for the right texture.
- At the beginning, add pureed peelings blended with peach nectar
- If using frozen or canned peaches, macerate the peaches by sprinkling with sugar, lemon juice and a pinch of salt and let stand 30 minutes on the counter.
