St. Patrick's Day "Shamrock" Shake

I always like to try something new every year for St. Patrick's Day. This year the Mr. came home with a ton (okay, more like 4 boxes) of Girl Scout cookies. I still have 3 boxes of Thin Mint still in the freezer from last year. So since it's darn near impossible to eat just 2 cookies, which is the serving size for Thin Mints, I decided to turn it into an adult version of the Shamrock Shake using the cookies.

You can always add more or less milk depending on the shake consistency that you prefer. And of course for a child friendly version, skip the liquor and add a squirt of chocolate syrup instead.

Makes 1 shake

  • 6 scoops (about 1 1/2 c.) fat free vanilla frozen yogurt
  • 1/2 c. skim milk
  • 1 1/2 oz. (1 shot) Baileys Irish Cream
  • 1 1/2 oz. (1 shot) chocolate liquor
  • 2 Thin Mint cookies
  • 8 drops of green food coloring
  • 1 Thin Mint cookie for garnish

  1. Put all the ingredients except for the garnish cookie, in the blender and blend until well smooth. Pour into glass.
  2. Using a sharp knife, slowly slice into the cookie using short shallow strokes. (if you get too overzealous, the cookie will slit in half.)
