Thin Mint Shamrock Milkshake


Rich and creamy thin mint shamrock milkshakes …the perfect dessert for Saint Patrick’s Day!

Have you bought your first box of Girl Scout cookies yet? I caved and bought 2 boxes of thin mints from my friends. I’m proud to say after two weeks I still have a box left. Crazy, I know. It must be a miracle! Those things are dangerous I tell ya! The absolute best place to keep them is in the freezer. Your kids won’t find them and they taste amazing cold. Throw them in a blender with a little mint chip ice cream and you have this delicious thin mint milkshake. I’ve been making these since I was a Girl Scout and they are seriously so good!

Thin mint milkshake on good!

    The mint and chocolate combo is my weakness…which always leads to me buying far too many boxes of Thin Mints. This shake is brilliant!

    This looks absolutely delicious! Thin Mint Cookies and I have a bad relationship. I eat the box way to quickly!
