Homemade Shamrock Shake
Our creamy, mint shake is similar to McDonald's in flavor, but has 28 grams of sugar instead of 73.
Yield: 1, 12-ounce shake
- 2 Tbsp. fresh mint leaves
- 1 1/2 cups light vanilla ice cream or light vanilla frozen yogurt
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1/4 tsp. real peppermint extract
Place all ingredients in a blender (we used a Ninja Kitchen System 1200) and blend until smooth.
Add more mint if desired. If too thin add more ice cream. If too thick, add more milk.
Serve immediately with a sprig of fresh mint and/or light whipped cream.
