Shamrock Shake (McDonald's Copycat)
adapted from about a hundred different recipes
• 2 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
• 1 cup whole milk
• 1/8-1/4 teaspoons mint extract (not peppermint!)
• 10 drops green food coloring
• whipped cream
• green sugar sprinkles
• maraschino cherry
➀ Add ice cream, milk, mint extract and food coloring to blender; blend until smooth.
➁ Pour into glass; top with whipped cream, sprinkles, and a cherry. For the most authentic experience, drink with a straw!
➂ Vary it up: For added pizazz, drizzle chocolate syrup on the inside of the glass before adding the blended shake. Sub out the vanilla ice cream with chocolate for a fun chocolately spin. Or for a boozy twist, try adding some créme de menthe before blending!
