McDonald’s Shamrock Shake Sighting
We had our first Shamrock Shake Sighting today at the Bricktown McDonald’s in Oklahoma City. The Super Bridgy was with me as I promised I’d pick her up from preschool early and spend part of the afternoon with her.
I loved Shamrock Shakes as a kid, although they were a lot better than they are now. Not to burst anyone’s Shamrock Shake bubble, but the few times I’ve bought them over the past couple of years, they haven’t been completely frozen or mixed. The green swirling dye is a bit unappetizing. Bridgy didn’t seem to mind though, but wow! These things are sooooo sweet.
Recipe for Shamrock Shake
1 1/2 cups frozen vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup skim, organic milk
10 drops green food coloring
1 teaspoon peppermint extract or 1/2 cup pulverized peppermints (I use my magic bullet!)
Whipped cream (optional)
1 red maraschino cherry
Mix the first four ingredients together and then top with whipped cream and a cherry. Yum!
When’s the last time you had a Shamrock Shake Sighting?
Here’s a vintage commercial featuring the Shamrock Shake. I love the girl’s green McDonald’s uniform!
