Last week was a long week, and by Friday I knew that my husband and I needed a special little treat. For once, I really didn’t feel like baking anything so I started thinking about something else I could make that could be festive for St. Patrick’s Day. I still had some thin mints hiding in the back of the freezer, and we are both ice cream fiends, so the idea of a thin mint milk shake was born. I am obsessed with the peppermint chocolate combo, so I definitely made this EXTRA minty and it was SO good! Whatever you do, just don’t think about the calorie count when you enjoy this though 😉
Boozy Thin Mint Milkshake
1 pint vanilla ice cream (or mint)
1 cup milk
3 ts mint extract
2 oz silver rum
6 thin mints + 2 for garnish (or oreos)
Green food coloring
Whipped cream for garnish
Add ice cream, milk, mint extract, rum, and food coloring to blender and mix until smooth. Crush up 6 thin mints and add them in, blending enough to incorporate while still leaving some bits.
Serve immediately with whipped cream and extra thin mints on top.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
