Candy Cane Milkshake with Pure Leaf Raspberry Iced Tea

December 6, 2016 in Beverage / Tea Recipe

This is the perfect recipe to say a final farewell to the warmer weather all while welcoming the festive season. Ice cream is not a one season treat for me and sometimes plain vanilla is all I need because I prefer dressing ice cream up myself. That usually involves tea in some way. Whether I’m sprinkling matcha on top before I indulge, or drizzling on a houjicha infused magic chocolate shell, tea and ice cream seem to be made for one another. This time around I’m taking Pure Leaf Canada’s Raspberry Iced Tea and making a candy cane milkshake.

When the holiday season arrives and the Christmas decorations need to be put out, usually I’m found sipping on a tea infused hot cocoa. However, this year, it hasn’t been as cold as it should be already and itโ€™s the day after my birthday, so this creamy, peppermint and fruity drink is a must. candy cane milkshake
