One of my favorite treats around this time of year is a shamrock shake from McDonalds, and while it isn’t one of the healthiest options, sometimes it’s good to indulge.
Not everything you make in your blender needs to be healthy, and we deserve a treat.
This recipe will taste pretty close to the classic flavor with a little bit of extra mint tossed in at the end to make it extra special.
- 2 cups of vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup of soy milk
- 1/4 teaspoon of mint extract
- A few drops of green food coloring
- 3 Thin Mint cookies
- Add the vanilla ice cream, soy milk, mint extract and the green food coloring to the blender container and secure the lid.
- Turn the blender on at a low speed, then slowly increase speed to high.
- Blend on high for 30-45 seconds.
- Reduce the speed to low, open the lid plug and drop in the Thin Mint cookies.
- Blend for 5-10 more seconds, until the cookies are mixed in evenly.
- Pour into a glass and enjoy!
