I know I’ve said it before, but I crave milkshakes so bad when I am pregnant!  Once I had a McDonald’s Shamrock Shake, I knew I needed to come home and make one ASAP!  This tasted just as good as the real thing and I didn’t even have to leave the house to get my milkshake fix. :)


Copycat McDonald’s Shamrock Shake Recipe:
(Makes 2 servings)

3-4 cups vanilla ice cream
1 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon pure peppermint extract
1/4 teaspoon green food color
Whipped cream, for topping
Green sprinkles, for topping

Place ice cream, milk, peppermint extract and green food coloring in a blender.  Cover and blend until smooth.  Pour into glasses and top with whipped cream and sprinkles.  Serve immediately.

    Are there different types of ‘mint’ to use in this? Or can peppermint extract expire? I don’t know how old mine is, maybe a year or two, but it smelled ok. One sip of this shake and I gagged – the peppermint is just SO strong. I’m disappointed that I wasted that much good ice cream on this – now I can’t get the taste out of my mouth. :(
