Shamrock Shakes

In honor of St Patrick's Day, here is a copycat recipe I found that tastes  ALMOST identical to the shakes Tristen and I love!!

Shamrock Shakes

2 cups vanilla ice cream
1 1/4 cups 2% milk
1/4 teaspoon mint extract
8 drops of food coloring (We didn't use that much. More like 4)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until smooth. Stop blender and stir with a spoon if necessary to help blend ice cream.  Pour into 12 ounce cups, add a bit of spray whip cream, throw a cherry on top and ENJOY!!
