A sweet, scrumptious dessert for St. Patrick’s Day. Refreshing Creamy Mint Chocolate Chip milkshake that everyone will enjoy…and it’s skinny!
Have you ever made something just so you can use a new dish or a new appliance? Yeap, I do that every time I get a new “toy.” The second I bring it home, I search for something to make. In this case, I got a couple of new toys…
I got a new Magic Bullet! I can’t tell you how many times I went back and forward about getting it. Hubby actually got one for me for Christmas, but I ultimately decided to return it since I still had a Ninja. But see, my Ninja is like a million years old and not as sharp anymore. Needless to say, it has some performance issues. So after thinking about it for two months, I ran out and got the Magic Bullet with the gift card that I got from returning it in the first place…how ironic.
The second new “toys” are those adorable green striped St. Patrick’s Day straws that you see in the photo. I’ve been walking by them at Target for the past couple of weeks and finally couldn’t help myself any longer. I think that they are just too cute and I had to have them!
I couldn’t wait to get home and try it out so I decided to make a milkshake for the little man and myself. I wanted to make it skinny so I searched for frozen yogurt in a mint flavor. Shockingly, almost every brand had a mint or mint chocolate chip flavor of frozen yogurt. I guess it becomes a popular flavor during this time of year. How lucky for us! (Get it?)
- 2 scoops of mint chocolate chip frozen yogurt
- 1 scoop of Cool Whip, lite or fat free (frozen for best results)
- 1 cup of skim milk
- 3 Fresh mint leaves
- Light Whipped cream to top it off
- Green sugar is optional
- Hmmm...do you need the directions? Eh, why not...
- Combine the frozen yogurt, Cool Whip, milk and mint leaves in a blender and pulse until smooth.
- Top off with some whipped cream.
- Sprinkle with a little bit if green sugar if you want.
