Shamrock Shake Recipe

This post is totally not for me, but strictly for my readers. I hate most things made with mint and I especially think McDonald's Shamrock Shake is disgusting, but I have tons of friends who love it. Since St. Patty's Day is tomorrow I thought I would post 2 recipes for McDonald's Shamrock Shake. The first one is the healthy substitute that can also be made into an alcoholic beverage which is always a plus. The second recipe is McDonald's actual recipe for their shake. I hope everyone enjoys them! Have a great St. Patrick's Day!

Skinny Shamrock Shake

To spike the shake, add one shot (or more) of vodka before blending.
