The Irish heritage comes from my Dad’s side.
We are a lot alike me and my Dad.
We both have red hair.
We both like to cook.
We both love to be innovative.
We both like beer.
When I was little I remember my Dad using this:
She’s going on 50 I think.
She looks pretty hot if you ask me.
If you notice, it says “cocktail mixer”.
I treasure this gal.
I never hide it in the cabinet.
She’s been on display in our kitchen since we married.
My sister would love to steal it.
She thinks I hog all the good stuff.
My parents used her for several things, including but not limited to:
potato pancakes (can you believe that?)
Now we can add Shamrock Shake to the list.
Have you ever tried one?
It may seem as though I am obsessed with Mc Donald’s since starting my
Blog Bulge series. I assure you I am not, but every March I do take my girls to Mc Donald’s for a Shamrock Shake. This year I decided to make my own version.
Pour into blender:
2 Cups Vanilla Frozen Yogurt
2 Cups Fat Free Milk
1 1/2 Teaspoon Mint Extract (peppermint)
6-7 drops of green food coloring
Blend for about 2 minutes. This makes 2 large 16 oz. servings, or 4 small 8 oz. servings at 145 calories per 8 oz. serving.
My husband will be soooooo happy!
I’m puttin’ this on Pinterest and looks like there is room for adult beverage variations… The 50’s/Florida shade of green is very nice.
Looks scrumptiously delicious to me! ~ Gonna make it to share with sister Lucy, & my Mom for St. Pat’s Day Julie! ~ Thanx!
[…] Low Calorie Shamrock Shake […]
I know that will be good. I am going to try and make it with 1 frozen banana, 1 cup coconut milk unsweetened, mint extract and food coloring. Sounds so good! Luck of the Irish ☘️ to you!
Sounds great, Kyle!
this looks and sounds amazing. my husband is Irish also, and we to try to catch McDonalds Shamrock shakes to. This year, we will be making your shake instead. By the way I love your story about your blender, cute and so funny. Thanks for sharing.
