Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

At 4:30 today I’ll appear on Channel 12 Valley Dish with Tram Mai, where we’ll be making my Corned Beef, Cabbage, and Potato Pizza, along with this Mint-Chocolate Shake. If you want your shake to be green, it’s important NOT to use green-colored mint chocolate chip ice cream, but instead, the more natural white ice cream. When blended, the green ice cream turns a lovely chocolate brown from all those chips! You’ll be using green food coloring to turn the white ice cream green. Either way, green or brown, this is one heavenly holiday treat! Now you can go to the “In The News” page on the left and watch the video of the show…

St. Patty’s Mint-Chocolate Shake

1/2 cup milk
5 to 7 drops of green food coloring
1/8 teaspoon pure mint extract
8 to 10 scoops mint chocolate chip ice cream
(white, not green ice cream)
2 tablespoons rum

Whipped cream
Mint sprigs
Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies

Pour milk, food coloring, and mint into a measuring cup and stir to blend. Place milk mixture, ice cream, and rum (if using) in a blender and puree.

Pour into two tall glasses and garnish each with a sprig of mint, whipped cream, and a cookie or two. Stick in a straw, and enjoy!

How big do you consider a scoop to be?

Hey Marissa-May-May…. doesn’t matter what size, just adjust the milk so that it blends easily… you should have seen me struggling with the darn blender on TV yesterday… nothing like Live TV and an uncooperative blender/mixture to embarrass a person!
