Recipe: The Classic Shamrock Shake

Hey cupcakes! Now that Valentine's Day has come and gone, it is time to put away the pinks and reds in exchange for some extra greens 😉 I think St. Patrick's Day is such a fun holiday, and the food is just amazing! To get you all in the spirit, I wanted to share a recipe for the classic Shamrock Shake that is so popular this time of year. ☘ Let's jump right into it!

What You Need:
-1 cup vanilla ice cream (or frozen yogurt)
-3/4 cup milk (1% or 2% is fine!)
-1/2 tsp mint extract
-Green food coloring
-Whipped cream
-Chocolate chips (optional)
-Cherry (optional)
-Sprinkles (optional)

What To Do:
1. Add ice cream/frozen yogurt, milk, and mint extract into a blender.
2. Blend well (until there are no chunks!)
3. Add one drop of food coloring (or more if you like the flavor of food coloring haha) and blend until the color is mixed throughout. If you don't want the color to be green, just skip this step as it is pretty unnecessary if you ask me!
4. If you want, add some chocolate chips and pulse briefly to get a mint chocolate chip flavor 😍
5. Pour into a mason jar or glass.
6. Top with whatever you see fit: whipped cream, cherries, sprinkles, etc.
7. Enjoy!
