Shamrock Shake Knock Off Is a Winner
It's safe to say that Pinterest has almost completely replaced the Food Network for me. I get hungry every time I load my Pinterest page.
But today was the first time I've actually tried something out. No surprise it's a McDonald's knock off. None of us even goes to McDonald's anymore. Only the Shamrock Shake had me reconsidering our decision to shun my beloved fast food giant.
Now that I can make my own -- and that homemade version is so much better -- there may be no going back to McD's.
For the most part, we used the babble.com recipe of 3 cups good vanilla ice cream; 1 3/4 cups milk; 1/2 tsp peppermint extract; and green food coloring. We topped ours off with whipped cream and a Girl Scout Thin Mint.
