If you live anywhere near a Chick-fil-A restaurant, you’ve probably enjoyed one of their delicious Peach milkshakes. CFA only offers this delicious milkshake seasonally; typically just during the summer months. However, you can now enjoy this peach milkshake recipe all year long!
Made with just a few simple ingredients, this thick and delicious peach milkshake is topped with loads of whipped cream and a maraschino cherry – just like Chick-Fil-A!
Here’s the copycat for the Chick-Fil-A Peach Milkshake recipe:

How do you thicken a homemade milkshake?
First use a really good (and very frozen!) ice cream. Softer, slightly melted ice cream will render a thinner milkshake. Using a good quality vanilla ice cream, straight from the freezer will help ensure a nice, thick texture.
You can also add less milk and more ice cream, just ensure the ice cream is hard.
How do you make a peach milkshake?
Start by adding very frozen vanilla ice cream to a blender. Add in cold milk, fresh or canned peaches, and sugar. Blend until smooth.
In addition to the peaches that you blend with the ice cream, I added some finely diced peaches at the end that I stirred into the milkshake. This helps ensure you get plenty of peach in each drink, and also really replicates the chunky, peachy texture of the original Chick-fil-A shake.
Pro-Tip: The blender I use and love is my Blendtec Designer Series Blender. Not only does is make milkshakes and smoothies with ease, it can easily handle pancake and muffin batters, soups and even nut butters! Use the discount code DELIGHTFULEMADE to get 20% off your blender purchase.

Topped with a generous amount of whipped cream, and a maraschino cherry and you’ll think you’re at the restaurant! With a spoon, or a straw this shake is amazing!
Here’s how this delicious Chick-Fil-A Peach Milkshake recipe comes together:
- 2 c. good quality vanilla ice cream, very frozen
- 1/2 c. cold, whole milk
- 1 (about 1 c.) large peach, peeled and sliced (reserving about 1/3 c., diced), or frozen or canned peaches
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- whipped cream
- maraschino cherries
- In a blender, add the ice cream, milk, 2/3 c. of peaches, and sugar. Blend together until smooth. Stir (not blend) in the remaining 1/3 c. of diced peaches. Pour into two glasses and top with whipped cream and cherries. Enjoy right away.
This makes 2 medium shakes, or one (VERY LARGE) shake.
Also, if fresh peaches are not in season, frozen or canned peaches are a great alternative.
This shake is such a fantastic way to enjoy the season’s freshest peaches. Blend up these milkshakes at the end of a hot day or for a fun, afternoon snack. Enjoy! ~Erin
