With Saint Patrick’s Day not far away all these different fast food joints, are serving their mint flavored Shakes. As I was sitting here, I started to crave me a mint shake, and I was so tempted to hit McDonald’s up for their Shamrock Shakes. However, this would mean I had to buy three of them, one for dear daughter, one for dear husband and of course one for me…
Have you seen the price of shakes lately? The price of them is just as bad as the price of gas. So as I sat here thinking more and more about the yummy green shake, I decided to head to the grocery store and get the stuff to make my own.
I already had the green food coloring, and the milk. So I got some mint extract, and vanilla ice cream. Total seven dollars!
When I got home, I got the blender out, and made me a shake!
2 cups of Vanilla Ice Cream
1 cup of milk (this will vary depending on what thickness you like of your shake.)
2 drops of green food coloring (this gives a mint green color)
About ¼ teaspoon of mint extract blend up, and put your straw in and ENJOY!
This will make a heck of a lot more shakes for a lot cheaper than going to the fast food joints, and the temptation to purchase other unhealthy menu items.
