Mint Chip Milkshake

Earlier this week Kaydin and I whipped up a quick milkshake for a quick evening treat. I never keep ice cream on hand but when it was cheap at the grocery store a couple weeks I threw it in the cart.  It came together really easily using my immersion blender. I don't use this little kitchen tool too often, but it's one I'm really glad I have.  
For the milkshakes I used the vanilla and a little bit of the chocolate ice cream from a Neapolitan mix (I would never choose Neapolitan but I let Kaydin choose).  Instead of using regular milk I added some of the coconut milk I picked up at Trader Joe's last week.  <-- Sooo good! Try it when you get the chance! I even caught Kaydin drinking from the carton after I poured in what we needed for the milkshakes.  To add just a little extra to the mis I added some Andes mint chips I have had in the cupboard.

A quick spin with the immersion blender was enough to get everything mixed just right!
 This is a little dessert I would love to have a few times per week!
