5. Leprechaun Shake

Ingredients:

✓ 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
✓ 3/4 cup milk
✓ 3 or 4 drops green food coloring
✓ A few drops of peppermint extract flavoring…to suit your taste.
Chocolate syrup

How to make a leprechaun shake.

Instructions

  1. Put ice cream, milk, peppermint, a few squeezes of chocolate syrup, and food coloring into a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth and green.
  3. Pour into glass.

NOTE: Having just made the above recipe, I added a few more large scoops of ice cream for a thicker shake. Either decrease the milk or increase the ice-cream. Don’t be afraid to add the chocolate syrup. It doesn’t change the color and gives it a good taste. You can also omit the peppermint extract if you prefer a plain shake; however, it really DOES leave a refreshing taste after it’s finished! (Image by KidActivities.net)
