Hands up if you are a girl scout cookie lover.
Both of my hands are raised. We always have a large order of girl scout cookies. My husband literally orders an entire case of thin mints. We keep them in the freezer, where they will last forever! Well, technically they should last forever, but in reality, they only last like a month. Two at the most. Sad huh? Considering we have thin mint cookies coming out of our ears, I thought I might as well make something with them. My husband reluctantly sacrificed half a box to me.
This milkshake was definitely on a whim and just a random craving. But totally worth indulging in. I mean really, how can you go wrong with thin mints and vanilla ice cream? This milkshake was the perfect way to end a warm Spring day, where I actually ended up sunburnt! I promise you, you won’t be sorry if you go and make this. Now.
Island Bakes Original
- 3 cups vanilla ice cream (or if you're freaky like that, use chocolate ice cream!)
- 1 sleeve of thin mint cookies, plus more for garnish (optional)
- 2 cups milk
- Optional- if you really like mint, add a dash of peppermint extract
- Place all the ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve with additional crushed thin mint cookies on the top. Enjoy!
