Shillelagh Shake!

Top o' the mornin' to ya!

My half-Irish eyes are smiling while sipping on this cool shake. 

(Shillelagh, pronounced shi-lay-lee, ya' know the Irish walking cane)

You must try my version of the franchise frozen concoction, featuring REAL ingredients.

After seeing the pictures of pink goo used to make nuggets, we will think once, twice and then make our own! 
A couple unexpected ingredients make this truly a treat!

In your blender:

fill half way with vanilla ice cream

about a cup of milk

2 tablespoons of heavy cream

2 tablespoons of vanilla Torani syrup

2 drops of real peppermint extract

2 drops of green food coloring

This is not a low fat treat, but genuinely unexpectedly delicious.
Peppermint extract is very strong, don't overdo, this isn't a mint milkshake. The few drops add subtle freshness. Vanilla Torani also adds additional depth of flavor.

You could even make this into a cocktail by substituting the mint extract with a jigger of Dr. McGillicuddy.
