Wondering why McDonalds has such a crowd? It's their new St. Paddys Day Shamrock Shake! But rather than stand in line for this green tasty shake I have a recipe for one that taste even better. How do I know this? Well this one has chocolate at the bottom and you don't have to wait as long to get it , not to mention it cost less.
Mint Chocolate Shamrock Shake
2 scoops chocolate ice cream (for diabetics use Carb smart only 4g carbs)
1/4 cup of milk
3 scoops vanilla bean ice cream
1/3 cup of milk
1/4 teaspoon pure mint extract
whipped cream & sprinkles
Green food coloring
In a blender, combine chocolate ice cream and 1/4 cup of milk until smooth.
Add chocolate milk shake to the bottom of a tall glass.
In a blender, combine vanilla ice cream, mint extract, 1/3 cup of milk and green food coloring (optional) until smooth.
Carefully poor the mint milk shake over the chocolate in the same glass and top with whipped cream and sprinkles.
