It’s that time of year again…
I just love these darn shakes. They’re minty, sweet, and creamy… and mostly, reminiscent of my teenage years. I remember enjoying these shakes with friends, and not having a care in the world… nor did I even realize that the 12 oz shake carried a whopping 530 calories. Unbelievable!
I’ve also not had a Shamrock shake for years… but that doesn’t make me not think about them this time of year. And, I’m excited that I made a pretty good version of it this year with a tiny fraction of the calories that comes in the original!!
1 cup Arctic Zero
1/2 cup skim milk
6 drops of green food coloring
a dash of peppermint extract
1. Place your Arctic Zero on the counter to thaw for about 15 minutes. This will make it more scoopable.
2. Place all of the ingredients in your food processor or blender. Note: I added about 1/16 tsp. of peppermint flavoring to the mix and it was perfect. Be VERY careful with the mint extract – – it’s extremely potent!
3. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add more green food coloring, if needed to get the right color. Because I used a brown Arctic Zero, the color didn’t end up being a vibrant green, but I loved the flavor combo!
4. Move to a glass and enjoy!
