Pinterest Challenge: Shamrock Milkshakes

I LOVE maybe even love love milkshakes! I love anything that has ice cream in it. I don’t frequent McDonald’s often at all, maybe three or four times a year, and that’s only when they have their beloved Shamrock Shakes! I can’t help it. Especially being pregnant this time of year, I may or may not have had a TON of them already =)  Kiley also loves milkshakes, but they make such a mess in the car, and as soon as we get it, she has to have it and a mess always ends up happening.

So, I searched on Pinterest for a replica Shamrock Shake and found one! The original pin came from The Family Kitchen. The ingredients are so simple that you probably already have them in your house!



3 cups of vanilla ice cream

1/2 teaspoon of mint or peppermint extract

Green food coloring, a couple of squirts

1 3/4 cups of milk, your choice, we drink 1% so I used that


Put all ingredients in a blender and blend till it’s a milkshake consistency.

Enjoy. Kiley did! =)
