Homemade Shamrock Shake like McDonalds

Other blogs would probably take the time to doll this simple shake up; cutsie little glass or jar, whipped cream, sprinkles, whatnot.  

Remember though; that's not me.  That's not my blog.  I'm not a food-blog wanna be. This website was started as my personal site long before those were 'the thing'.   I give myself a pat on the back when I remember to take a picture on my cellphone before serving it to my family. 

So feel free to cutsie up this shake as much as you want.  All I needed was a minty Shamrock Shake to whip up quickly and take outside where we were enjoying a fire on the patio before dinner.

Minty Shamrock Shake
2 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream
1 cup milk (I used almond milk)
3 drops green food color (about)
2 drops food/candy quality peppermint oil
3 drops food/candy quality spearmint oil
3/4 t vanilla extract

Place in a blender.  Pulse then blend on high til smooth.  You may need to add more milk if it's too thick or more ice cream if it's too thin to your liking.  You can make it cute with whipped cream, a cherry, etc. or just enjoy it as it is.
