After reading a few different recipes for this, I decided this particular recipe sounded the best in my opinion. We made it tonight for a St. Patty's day treat, and we all thought it was YUMMY! This might become an annual tradition. :) Definitely beats corned beef and cabbage, although I wouldn't really know since I've never actually eaten corned beef and cabbage... :)
- 3 cups good quality vanilla ice cream
- 1 3/4 cups 1% milk
- 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
- Green food coloring, if desired
Blend all ingredients in a blender until completely thick and smooth. Pour into glasses and serve!
This made plenty for all 3 of us. We also topped ours with whipped cream and green sprinkles, like the picture.
