Gluten/Dairy Free Shamrock Shake

who doesn’t love the shamrock shake from McDonald’s?    I love them but I don’t love the ingredients!   I read this recently and it really made me think about what I was buying.

Mostly I have made these at home and have done it with several different recipes:

put all in the blender and mix

1.   use 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of vanilla ice cream, 1-2 drops peppermint essential oil, 2 drops of green food coloring.  Top with whipped cream and a cherry. (add more milk or more ice cream for your favorite consistency)

2. Chocolate chip mint ice cream, milk and mix.  top with whipped cream and cherry if desired.  If your mint ice cream isn’t already green you can add food coloring.

3.  Dairy free, Oh so delicious vanilla or mint ice cream, small amount of coconut milk and mix.  if using vanilla add in some peppermint essential oil or flavoring and green food dye or leave it dye free.  Its the flavor not the green that makes it good.

4.  Want to get really creative?  make your own ice cream for the base of this dessert.   Can’t beat the flavor on that!

Now you don’t have to drive all the way down to McDonald’s or other fast food just to have your St. Patrick’s Day Shake.
