This Copycat Chick-fil-A Peach Milkshake recipe makes the best peach milkshakes ever! Made with fresh and frozen peaches, these summer treats are delicious!
This homemade peach milkshake is so easy to make, and it's probably my favorite milkshake recipe. This post was originally published in 2015, but since it's peach season, I'm sharing it once again!
I know I already told you about our little Flagstaff vacation. Well, before we left Flagstaff, we stopped at a Chick-fil-A drive-thru for a quick lunch to go.
So right as the Hubs was ordering, I spied a large picture of a peach milkshake from their menu, so of course, I just had to have one. And oh, my goodness, was it ever good!
So when we got home, guess what I made? That's right. I whipped up this Copycat Chick-fil-A Peach Milkshake just so that I could experience the joy all over again!
I've told you before what a huge peach lover I am. Seriously, I love just about any peach recipe, especially peach dessert recipes!
But the funny part is that we don't have a Chick-fil-A near us, so I had no idea that this peachy confection even existed until just recently. Actually, this is probably a good thing since I would probably be buying milkshakes like crazy, and I definitely don't need to be doing that!
I'm also not usually big on copycat recipes either. I mean, I may try to make something similar if I happen to find a recipe I really like, but I've never gone out of my way to mimic the exact taste of something or call it a copycat recipe.
See, this particular shake was super thick, like I prefer shakes to be, but instead of being smooth, it also had little bits of peaches in it. So you got the incredible taste of a juicy peach with every sip. And that's, what I wanted to re-create!
How to make a peach milkshake
I found that using a combination of frozen peaches and fresh peaches helped give me both the taste and the consistency I was after. I also used whole milk, just to keep the milkshake nice and creamy.
Because if there's one thing that bugs me, it's a thin, watery, runny milkshake. Really.
So, this definitely isn't diet food, but it's not like I drank the whole thing, as tempting as that may have been. In fact, all seven of us shared the peach shake when we were on vacation. Honestly!
But that's the fun part of being on vacation or even just enjoying summer vacation --it's perfectly fine to splurge every now and then. And since it's almost time for the kids to head back to school, I'm glad that we had the chance to indulge.
