The video of the milkshake being made was much appreciated. It has made me want to make this even more. When I was a child, I remember going to McDonald's and drinking a shamrock shake and really enjoying it. Now that I'm grown up, I still crave this treat. To lighten up this recipe, I would use fat free or 1 % milk. If an even healthier version is desired, reduced fat vanilla ice cream or vanilla frozen yogurt could be used.

I have never been a fan of McDonald's ice cream so I have never had the shake. But, I do love mint and would love to try it for myself and I could use good quality ice cream. Instead of vanilla ice cream, you could always just use mint flavored. Maybe that wouldn't taste the same. It would still be good.

I also make a point to get at least one Shamrock Shake around St. Patrick's Day, but now I can have one any day I please!
