St Paddy's Day Milkshake


I am not a big St. Patrick's Day person...
Although I do like the green food..
This year I decided to make a green mint milkshake and this recipe turned out great.
My pictures aren't the best as it was early evening so not a lot of natural light 
and the more pictures I took, the milkshake kind of separated some but it still tasted good.


St Paddy's Day Milkshake


1.5 cups ice cream
1 cup milk (I used skim)
3 tsp creme de menthe syrup
1 tsp minced fresh mint
2-3 drops green food colouring
extra mint and andres creme de menthe thins, coloured sugar for garnish 

In blender mix ice cream, milk, creme de menthe syrup and mint until smooth.  If you want a thicker milkshake add more ice cream or thinner add more milk.  Add 2 -3 drops of green food colouring until you get the shade of green you would like.  To make green coloured sugar, add a drop of two of food colouring to sugar and mix.  Dip rim of glass into sugar.  Pour in milkshake and garnish with andres mints and extra fresh mint.

Enjoy

Ice Cream Cake

I know, you don't have to tell me.... it has been a long time since I have done a post but I will remedy that and finish this post today as you may need this for a birthday or a celebration.
A couple of weeks or maybe even a month I go I saw this recipe on facebook from Mainelybakes and pinned it right away so that when I get company I can make and wow them... Well, I made it and I wowed them.  My company was quite impressed with my creativity and it all went except two small pieces that my husband and I shared a few days after.  I will be making this again and there are many different combinations that you can use, so make it your own.


                                                       ICE CREAM CAKE
The original recipe is Here and probably a bit more healthy as she used  light ice cream sandwiches and yogurt.  But who wants to be healthy... I was going for the gusto...

Ingredients:
1 box ice cream sandwiches
1 box Kemp fudge crunch ice cream (I didn't use quite all)
raspberries to cover the bottom and for garnish
Hershey Bits 'O Brickle Toffee bits
Hot fudge sundae topping
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

I used my 10 inch springform pan.  Cut 9-10 ice cream sandwiches in 4ths (if you want to see how it is done go here.  I didn't remember to take a picture of this).  Place around edge of spring-form pan and place in freezer until solid.  I waited for about an hour.
 Once the ice cream sandwiches are frozen again, I sprinkled the bottom with frozen raspberries or you could use fresh if you want.
 Scoop half of the ice cream over the raspberries and spread until level.  I then sprinkled the toffee bits over the ice cream.  Scoop the rest of the ice cream on top of the toffee bit and spread.  Sprinkle more toffee bits on top  Place back in freezer until ready to serve.
 When ready to serve place whipping cream in bowl and start beating on high until start thickening.  Add sugar (you could add more if you want sweeter whipping cream) and vanilla slowly and continue to beat until you get stiff peaks.
 Drizzle hot fudge sundae topping over the last layer of ice cream and toffee bits.  Top with whipped whipping cream and garnish with fresh raspberries.... Serve.

And Enjoy!
Just think of the possibilities that you could do with this dessert.... So many.  I hope if you do your own flavors and fruits that you will let me know how you did it.
