Every March, a McDonald's commercial advertising the Shamrock Shake comes on and I'll get swept up with nostalgia and tell myself to get one at the drive thru. But alas, the image of poor Phoebe watching me slurp down the shake prevents me from getting one. Here's a non-dairy version:
2 c vanilla soy ice cream
1 c almond milk
1/2 t peppermint extract
3 - 4 drops green food coloring
Mix all ingredients together in a blender. Makes four 6-oz servings.
Phoebe decided to gild the lily. She saw a recipe on the back of her Cool Mint Oreos (yes, Oreos are dairy free, go figure), added some chocolate syrup to the bottom of the glass, and sprinkled some Oreo crumbs on top.
