Homemade “shamrock” shakes

Last week, I took the boys to McDonalds so they could try the Shamrock shake. Both of them loved it! This week I decided to make my own version. Ice cream was on sale for a pint. Can’t beat a dollar for a pint!

It’s so simple to make. Just put the ingredients in the blender and blend away.

Oh and while they were enjoying their treat, I was enjoying my St. Patty’s smoothie. Recipe to come later.

The Imaginative One says it would be better with whipped cream.
