HAHA. I crack myself up sometimes. I thought I had published my previous post titled “Springtime Brew”. However, as I went in to edit it to then make a new post for Easter Smoothie, I suppose I did not make two separate posts. Oh, well.
I shall recreate what I posted.
I do not eat at McDonalds, nor Taco Bell, Burger King, or pretty much ANY fast food place. I have many reasons, but generally out of principle, I do not. Also, we do not have normal tv, cable or satellite. We have netflix and hulu. Therefore, I was surprised when one of the kids asked for a “Shamrock Milkshake from McDonalds”. I stopped into a local grocer and picked up the ingredients I assumed would be in a “shamrock milkshake”. I found myself amazed, appauled and happy when I was told, “This tastes EXACTLY like a Shamrock Milkshake”. So, here goes…
I took a quart of Bryers French Vanilla icecream and relocated it into my blender. I added whole and 2% organic milk (add to the consistency of your liking), 18 drops of green food color paste from Williams Sonoma, and 2 teaspoons of mint extract.
The kids took the recipe from my Springtime Brew smoothie and took it a step further. They added colored sugar sprinkles. I couldn’t help but think it looked Easter-ish.
Make It Fun!
