Here's a grown up version of the Shamrock Shake, McDonald's annual frosty green treat. It's better than the childhood favourite because it has booze in it.
1¾cups low-fat vanilla ice cream
¼ cup vanilla vodka (or unflavored vodka ½ tsp. vanilla extract)
¼ cup Creme de Menthe
½ tbsp grated dark chocolate 1 tsp for topping
a few sprigs of mint
Throw ice cream, vodka and Creme de Menthe in a blender and mix until it’s just evenly combined. .
Using the handle of a wooden spoon, muddle mint at the bottom of a tall glass.
Pour the creamy, green goodness to just below the brim.
Stir in chocolate shavings until well incorporated.
Sprinkle the remaining chocolate on top.
Makes two small shakes or one Super Size.
