What you’ll need

  • 1 Chick-fil-A Vanilla Milkshake (you’ll only use half)
  • 6 fl. Oz evaporated milk
  • 6.75 fl oz. coconut milk
  • 7.5 oz cream of coconut
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. natural vanilla extract

Time to shake things up

  • Start by combining all ingredients in a blender or a bowl. Blend until all ingredients are combined.
    • If you’re using a bowl, use an immersion blender to combine your ingredients.
  • Chill and serve over ice or serve warm for cold-weather comfort!
  • Enjoy with friends and family

Pro-tip: If you want a minty twist, substitute our limited time Chick-fil-A® Peppermint Chip Milkshake for the Vanilla Milkshake. Omit the cinnamon and vanilla and whisk or blend ingredients. Top it off with a candy cane.
