'Tis the Season for Shakes & Smoothies - Shamrock Shake

It's April (no joke! - ok a day late) and a month of healthy salads is over and we are on to Shakes and Smoothies.  Well smoothies can be a bit on the healthy side but shakes, well there is nothing healthy there and I won't be sorry.  

McDonald's makes a mint (pun intended) on the Shamrock Shake around St. Patrick's Day.  Who knew it was super easy to make?  

Shamrock Shake

2 cups vanilla ice cream
1-1/4 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon mint extract
8 drops green food coloring

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until smooth. Stop blender to stir with a spoon if necessary to help blend ice cream. Pour into 12- ounce cups.
