Thin Mint Milkshake

Reasons to make a Thin Mint Milkshake:

A. You want to be cool and make a green drink, but you haven't been brave enough to try this yet.
B. You have leftover creme de menthe from making these.
C. St. Patrick's day is near so everything should be green and minty.
D. You are human.

That covers around 90% my readers, so let's begin.

Did you guys know that there is a Girl Scout Cookie Finder app? It takes your location and shows the closest places that the mini saleswomen stake out and what time they will be there. Best idea!

Did you also know that it isn't always correct? That when you get your husband up at 9 am to drive to Lowe's so you can have first pick of the cookie flavors (and he already thinks you're crazy), that they might not actually be there? Or that they might not be at Dollar Tree either? Or Walmart? Or said husband might start getting cranky because he doesn't want the cookies nearly as badly as you do?

I do wonder if we are on some watch list for the amount of time Saturday morning that we spent stalking the small children. That's really going to help my google ratings - put stalking and children in the same sentence. When I saw the rainbow of boxes outside a pet supplies store and screamed "Pull over! They're here!!" I had to play it cool. Like we needed pet supplies, and then, "Oh, Girl Scout cookies? I mean, I guess we can support the troops." So Koda got some raw, organic, refrigerated dog food and may never eat her normal kibbles again. 

Back to what you really want, the recipe.

Thin Mint Milkshake

4 small scoops of vanilla ice cream (your home ice cream scooper, not Baskin Robbins style, don't get too agressive)
1/4 cup of milk
4 Thin Mint cookies
2 tablespoons chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon of creme de menthe

If your ice cream is pretty hard, microwave the scoops for about 15 seconds. Dump all ingredients in the blender and blend until you can't take it anymore, and just want the milkshake in your mouth.

Top with homemade whipped cream if you are feeling super Martha Stewart.

This is what your husband will do to his milkshake, in the amount of time it takes you to take pictures of yours in the grass. 

Stalk the children. Buy the cookies. Make the milkshake.
