Drinkin’ o’ the green: a delicious milkshake. Photo courtesy McCormick.
This classic milkshake can be transformed into a St. Patrick’s Day special with a hint of green food coloring. Here are two delightful recipes, both with a hint o’ mint: one that everyone will enjoy, one strictly for adults (using creme de menthe instead of peppermint extract).
Our first mint milkshake recipe, from McCormick, makes three servings; prep time is just five minutes.
EMERALD MINT MILKSHAKE RECIPE
1. Place ice cream, milk, peppermint extract and green food color in blender; cover. Blend on high speed until smooth.
2. Pour into glasses. Top with whipped cream and sprinkles, if desired. Serve immediately.
*You can make green whipped cream, too. Make a conventional whipped cream recipe, adding several drops of food color before beating. Add it drop by drop, until you reach the desired color.
