It’s that time of year again! Shamrock Shakes are back and as exciting as that is, it’s not too exciting if you have a hard time digesting milk. So, I figured why not make my own dairy free (mostly), healthier version of the classic McDonald’s drink. It’s simple and easy and perfect for your next St.Patrick’s day party. I used mostly soy products but they can easily be switched with almond or coconut milk/ice cream. They are all equally delicious but will have a different taste. I did opt for real whipped cream but you can use a soy whipped cream instead. The serving size is two large milkshakes or should I say soyshakes.
Prep time: 5 minutes – Process time: 5 minutes
1 3/4 Soy milk original milk
3 Cups Vanilla Soy Ice Cream
1/2 Teaspoon Peppermint Extract
Green Food Coloring
Now get your handy-dandy blender out and blend together the soy milk, soy ice cream, peppermint extract and three drops of food dye until smooth and thick.
Pour your shake into a tall glass, add whipped cream, green sprinkles and a bright red cherry, as desired
Note: You may need to add more food coloring depending on how green you want it.
It’s as simple as that. Enjoy your luck of this Irish treat!
