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.
