My family looks forward to this time ever year because it is the one time when they can enjoy a Shamrock Shake!

I on the other hand cringe at the financial and nutritional cost of enjoying such a treat. In fact last year we practically choked on our Shamrock Shakes when the bill was around $20!!

But this year we can enjoy the much anticipated taste of the minty shakes for just a few dollars and know exactly what is going into each of the shakes.


– Vanilla ice cream – Low-fat milk – Mint extract – Green food coloring

Blend it all together until it has a nice creamy texture and all of the food coloring has been evenly mixed in to give it that nice green tone.

Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream if you would like to.
