Today, I want to share with you a quick and simple treat for all fans of St Patrick’s Day, those who like green and those who like milkshakes – that covers practically everyone, right?
Right! So now that we’ve established that everyone here is need for a little treat, here it is. My fantabulous (real word!), green and tasty Shamrock Shake.
Ingredients for 1 Shamrock Shake:
1 scoop mint chocolate ice-cream
2 scoops vanilla ice-cream
1/4 tsp peppermint extract
some green and yellow food colouring
some green or rainbow colour sprinkles
1. Pop the ice-cream, milk and peppermint extract into a blender and blend until your shake has a nice and thick consistency.
2. Colour your shake with some green food colouring. I added some yellow to make the colour pop a little more, but this is an optional step.
3. Pour into a high glass, we used a sundae glass, top with squirty cream and decorate with sprinkles.
4. Serve with a decorative straw. I only had a pink and white straw, so I covered the pink bits with green washi tape – you wouldn’t have guessed, would you?
Enjoy and remember me when you find that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, will you?
