McDonald’s Shamrock Shake Copycat Recipe

3 cups good quality vanilla ice cream
1 3/4 cups 1% milk
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
Green food coloring, if desired

Blend all ingredients in a blender until completely thick and smooth. Pour into glasses and serve! Makes 1 giant shake, or 2 generously sized shakes. (Personally, I love it when a milkshake comes with an extra milkshake on the side.)

Sláinte!
