The golden arches has this recipe down pat. Now you can make a refreshing Creamy Mint Shake right at home!
Ah, the tastes of spring. Rolling through the drive thru of the golden arches during the month of March only meant one thing, green mint shakes!
I remember growing up, when our parents would let us try a spoonful of their minty after dinner grasshoppers at a fancy restaurant. I was hooked, only it was alcoholic. So we learned how to make our own kid-friendly mint shakes at home- sans the alcohol, of course!
Even though this minty beverages seems seasonal to us, it's a delightful treat all year round! They've even made an appearance at our New Years Eve parties!
These mint shakes also make excellent cool down treat for the guys in the field during the hot summer months! You can check out what else we serve our farm crew here!
