Homemade Shamrock Shake Recipe
1 vanilla milkshake
1/4 tsp. mint flavoring or extract – start with less and add more to taste (Do not use peppermint flavoring– It isn’t the same)
6-8 drops green food coloring
Make up your favorite vanilla shake – I usually use about 2 cups of vanilla ice cream in a blender and keep adding milk until I get the thickness I want. If you get it too thin, then add more ice cream. If it is too thick, add more milk. (Careful, though– A little milk thins it a lot.) Different types of ice cream may make the flavor slightly different. You might try inexpensive and low fat ice cream to start with.
* Add some chocolate chips or shaved chocolate if you love chocolate and mint flavored chips or candy if you like.
