Minty, Green St. Patrick's Milkshake

Welcome to the last day in the St. Patrick's Day mini-series. Yes, I PROMISE today is the last day in this special green week saga. So, you are probably asking yourself what does she have for us today? Well, today I present you with... dum, dum, dum... a green, minty St. Patrick's Day Shake. Oh yes, marvel in it, embrace it and run to your kitchen right now and mix this baby up! It is the perfect end-of-St. Patrick's - Day week treat. It is a copycat version of the famous - or infamous - McDonald's Shamrock Shake. I have never been a huge fan of this shake phenomena, but Nick loves these drinks. I thought it would be a great way to end the week and I knew Nick would REALLY enjoy it. But then again, he has loved everything I made this week.



So lets get down to the VERY simple ingredients to this shake:

  • 1 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon mint extract
  • 4 drops green food coloring



  • Combine all of the ingredients into a blender and blend on high speed for a few seconds [until the shake is at your desired thickness]
  • Pour into a cup and drink away!!


This is probably one of the easiest recipes to make and the ingredients are probably all in your pantry. Go make this shake right now. For those people who miss their green McDonald's shakes during the other 11 months of the year, this recipe will sure quench your craving! I hope you all enjoy!


Until Next Time,

Happy Creating!
