While there is a little bit of mint in this shamrock shake, this is definitely not some healthy "green" version of the traditional, likely toxic, McDonald's version. No, I updated the shamrock shake of m youth by adding some booze - bright green creme de menthe for the color, and Baileys for some richness. I blended these with that touch of mint, some milk and some vanilla frozen yogurt. Yum. The perfect way to celebrate St. Patrick's day.
