When I announced the little Green Project in this post…Sarah admitted,
“Whenever I think of green in March I think of Green shakes at McDonalds. (Horrible I know, but they are so yummy!)”
I haven’t had one of those in forever, in fact I forgot they existed. BUT, since she brought it up, that’s all I’ve been able to think about. Mmmm! Shamrock Shakes.
SO, I did what I MUST. I tried to re-create a minty milkshake. They aren’t the healthiest things on the planet…but because I knew the ingredients in them I KNOW they’re healthier than the McD’s version.
And because I made them myself, I know they’re less expensive than the McD’s version, so I saved some green.
Okay, so my milkshake isn’t green. I tried to find some fresh mint, but I wasn’t successful. I had to use mint extract instead.
Hey, if you want to add green food coloring…I’ll look the other way.
Instead, I put a green straw in mine and took a picture of it on my green tea towel.
We all found this milkshake to be SO refreshing and a very fun treat (that I’ll probably make once a year…sometime in March.) My men love it when I experiment with recipes for you. :)
March Minty Milkshake (Oh how I love coming up with ridiculous recipe titles)
3 cups vanilla ice cream (unless you’re using homemade, I recommend Breyer’s ice cream since at least it uses real ingredients)
1 cup whole milk
1 1/2 t. pure mint extract
Mix all ingredients well in a blender. Makes 4 one cup servings.
So that was my fun little Green Project this week. What fun little Green Project did YOU come up with to share?
