1 ¾ c. low-fat vanilla ice cream
¼ c. vanilla vodka (or unflavored vodka + ½ tsp. vanilla extract)
¼ c. Crème de Menthe
½ tbsp. grated dark chocolate + 1 tsp. for topping
a few sprigs of mint
Throw ice cream, vodka and Crème de Menthe in a blender and mix until it’s just evenly combined. The beauty of a Mickey D’s shake is its ridiculous, straw-defying thickness. To replicate that effect, make sure not to over-blend. And if you do, then I’m sorry – you’ll just have to add more ice cream.
Using the handle of a wooden spoon, muddle mint at the bottom of a tall glass. Pour the creamy, green goodness to just below the brim. Stir in chocolate shavings until well incorporated. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate on top.
This recipe makes two small shakes or one Super Size. You can share if you want to, but if you’re at my house, you’d better get your own.
