Adult Shamrock Shake

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve had a McDonald’s shamrock shake (or McDonald’s for that matter…), so I should write a disclaimer that this shake won’t taste exactly like the fast food version – it’s better!  Adding some booze makes it an “adult” shake, and a perfect treat for the holiday.

This shake is really easy to make, and you can adjust the amounts of all the ingredients to your liking.  I just added a bit of this and a bit of that as I went along, so this recipe makes a lot – probably enough for two pint glasses worth.  When I recover from this batch I’ll make it again so that I can write out some more exact measurements for you guys.

“Adult” Shamrock Shake

about 5 scoops Mint Marble Fudge non-dairy ice cream (see Notes)
1 1/2 – 2 cups ice cubes
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
1/4 cup Creme de Cacao
1/4 + 1 – 2 tablespoons Creme de Menthe

Add all the ingredients to the blender and turn that sucker on!  Blend it up, and serve immediately.

Notes: If you can only get a hold of vanilla non-dairy ice cream, just add a bit of chocolate syrup to taste, and a bit of mint extract if the Creme de Menthe doesn’t provide enough mint flavor on its own.
