Handmade Challenge #12 - Shamrock Shake

These shakes have a long history in my family. Every babe has been treated to one long before they should be and an addiction is born. We’ve already partaken in a few from the fast food chain, but for financial and health reasons we have moved to the homemade kind for the rest of the green season. The recipe is easy and highly adaptable, so have fun and try not to dye your fingers and your kitchen green (not that I did that).

Shamrock Shake

2 cups vanilla ice cream or soy ice cream

1 ¼ cup milk, soy milk, or almond milk

¼ tsp mint extract

8 drops of green food dye*

*The mister pointed out that this is not necessary and just adds unnecessary dye into our diet. I stuck my tongue out at him.
