I added half the amount of milk called for--we wanted a thicker shake. The kids and I shared this between us. We thought this was very good, I'll make this again. NOTE: I used Turkey Hill vanilla bean ice cream and PURE peppermint extract.

OK check it out......here is my version: 4-5 large scoops vanilla ice cream, 1/3 to 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp mint (not peppermint-i always associate peppermint with pinks and reds.......not greens!) extract and 6-7 drops of green food coloring. Blend it up real good and voila! I think its a pretty close match to McDonalds shamrock shake but hey...who am I??? lol
