Can you believe that St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner already! This year it is on March 17th. And one of my favorite things about this time of year, though I avoid the place like the plague at all other times, is McDonald’s Shamrock Shake.
Yes, I know they are horrible for you, and probably don’t even contain dairy but “sugar infused plastic“, but damn are they delicious. And it only happens once a year…
But, the facts remain that they are terrible for your health, so in an effort to swear them off I attempted my own homemade version. The recipe I used is similar to this one from SparkPeople. Now I don’t have to wait all year, or hope that the ice cream machine isn’t broken, I can have a Shamrock Shake anytime!
- 1/2 cup frozen Greek plain or vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- Couple drops food coloring
- Couple drops peppermint flavoring
- 2 tbsp honey or sugar
Step 1: In a blender, combine all ingredients.
Step 2: Blend well until smooth. Add as much green as you want.
