Thin Mint Milkshakes

St. Patrick's Day is TOMORROW, and I've got just the treat for you! We always celebrate with Guinness Shepherd's Pie and Irish Soda Bread... followed up with a green dessert! This year, we'll be enjoying these Thin Mint Milkshakes. Cool creamy ice cream, blended together with creme de menthe syrup and Thin Mint cookies. If you are a fan of the famous Girl Scout cookie, you will absolutely love these shakes. IMG_9817 Funny story - I posted a picture of this shake on Instagram, and one of my friends asked for the recipe. She assumed it was a healthy spinach smoothie (probably due to the greenish color), and when I gave her the recipe, she was quite surprised! Haha. While this is not a healthy spinach smoothie, it is a tasty treat, and super easy to prepare. IMG_9812 To make the milkshake, combine some vanilla ice cream, creme de menthe syrup, and Thin Mint cookies in a blender. (If you don't have access to Thin Mint cookies, Keebler Grasshoppers work great!) Whirl it all together, and then pour into a glass and top with whipped cream! Easy peasy.
