So I haven't ever tried the shamrock shake that is at McDonalds in March. My hubby started talking about it the other day and saying how excited he was for March and to go to McDonalds to get this special shake. Then as I was going through pinterest the next day guess what I came across? This recipe!! So I had to give it a shot. It turned out pretty good. The original recipe said 1/4-1/2 tsp of mint extract, but I even thought that 1/4 was too much mint flavoring. I would even say 1/8-1/4 tsp. 1/2 would be way too much. Anyway, you all should give this recipe a try... it's delicious! :)
