Shamrock Shakes

3 cups vanilla ice cream
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
green food coloring

Blend all ingredients in a blender until completely thick and smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.

You could also get all fancy and add whip cream and sprinkles on top. :)

After I made this, I wondered why the recipe didn't just call for mint ice cream. Then you wouldn't have to add the peppermint extract or food coloring. ;)  I might try that next time and see how it turns out and if it tastes the same.  You could really make this for any holiday and just change out the ice cream flavors (peppermint candy cane anyone? yes please!).
