Copycat Shamrock Shake

St Patrick's Day party

Had a fun activity night last night with my girls from church.  We got a jump on St Patrick’s Day by decorating some wood blocks (see picture) and by eating some St Pat’s themed treats.  First up, this knockoff of a McDonald’s Shamrock Shake.  The recipe comes from a blog called “No. 2 Pencil”.  It was pretty tasty, better than an actual Shamrock Shake I think because it tasted like real ice cream and I don’t think that McDonald’s really does taste like real ice cream.

4 cup slow churned vanilla ice cream

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract

1 1/2 – 2 cups low fat milk

3 tablespoons sugar

green food coloring

Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
