HG's Shamrock 'n' Roll Shake

Shamrock Star!
Happy St. Patrick's Day, people! To celebrate, we've got a McDonald's-
inspired Shamrock Shake swap that's sure to make Ronald green with envy.
Creamy vanilla goodness with a hint of mint... Mmmmmm!

3/4 cup light vanilla soymilk
1/2 cup Breyers Double Churn Free Creamy Vanilla fat-free ice cream
1 tbsp. Coffee-mate Sugar Free French Vanilla powdered creamer
1/4 tsp. peppermint extract
2 drops green food coloring
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda)
1 1/2 cups crushed ice (8 - 12 ice cubes' worth)

Place Coffee-mate in a glass and add 1 tbsp. very hot water. Stir until
powder dissolves, and then transfer mixture to a blender.

Add all other ingredients to the blender. Blend at high speed until mixed
thoroughly. Sláinte! (That's the Irish way of saying, "Cheers!" -- we
know 'cuz we Googled it.)

McDonald's Shamrock Shake

It's Not Easy Being Green
Whether or not you celebrate St. Patrick's Day, you probably grew up
indulging in the beloved McDonald's Shamrock Shake. There's something
about that thick green shake that's ridiculously INTRIGUING. Is it the minty
flavor? Its smooth creaminess? The fact that it's available for a limited time
only? (Probably all of the above.) But now that you're all grown up, chances
are you don't find yourself making a beeline for Mickey D's to get your mitts
on this chilly treat. Besides, depending on the size you choose, it clocks in
with 420 - 1,110 calories and 10 - 26g fat (POINTS® value 9 - 24*). Eeeks!
Rather than just living in the past and savoring your Shamrock Shake
MEMORIES, whip up our guilt-free version of the gorgeous milkshake right in
your very own kitchen -- and have a mintylicious day! By the way, ours is
available all year round... Hear that, Ronald?
