DIY Shamrock Shake
It’s that time of year when everyone goes absolutely insane for the shamrock shakes at McDonalds, but you know what? You can make your own at home! Give this a try and let me know what you think:
First make a vanilla shake with vanilla ice cream and milk.
Next add some peppermint extract. Now remember, peppermint extract goes a long way so you don’t want to overdo it. Here’s a good rule of thumb:
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- ¾ cup of milk
- ¾ teaspoon peppermint extract
And then the final step is to add up to 8 drops of green food coloring. Food coloring is a potent ingredient just like peppermint extract is, so you don’t want to put too much in. 8 drops max should be more than enough.
Blend all ingredients on high speed until smooth, and you’ve got yourself a delish shamrock shake!
