Recipe: Shamrock Shake

---Originally posted on 3/15/11 to Teenage Times---
 Hey there.
    So you know how St. Patty’s is in a few days? Well, I don’t celebrate it(too young for know, complications) other than wearing green. Well, upon some web surfing, I found this interesting little article on Shamrocks, which urged me into green, which pushed me into food, which shoved me into a milkshake. Alrighty, here we go.

            Three cheers for ungranite countertops?
  •    1/2 cup milk
  •    1 cup vanilla ice cream
  •   1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  •   Several drops of green food coloring
     Let’s get started. You can do this in four easy steps(bolded), but my tips are here, too(unbolded).
    Scoop the ice cream into a blender or mixing bowl. Leave it there for five minutes. (If you need to, microwave the ice cream thing for 40ish seconds on auto defrost. It scoops out easier this way.)
     Add milk and extract. (Be ridiculously careful with this fast-moving extract, okay? It’ll completely mess up your shake — with medicine flavor)
 Blend it or mix it. (If mixing, use fork and stir quickly)
    Add some drops of green food coloring. (I used four little drops)

                                   (It says Happy Saint Patrick’s Day:)

     Easy, aye? Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
