It's been all over American since 1970. It appears every March and 60 million have been sold. It's a cool 530 calories with 15 grams of fat.


I'm talking about the McDonald's Shamrock Shake. How about one with less calories? You can make your own Shamrock Shake at home. You can then control your portion sizes and make a less-fattening version. "The Daily Meal" website suggests you can eaily do it if you can make a vanilla milkshake. Vanilla ice cream and milk mixed in the blender. Then you add pepperment extract for that mint flavor, and a few drops of green food coloring. Feel free to add whiped cream and a cherry on top. Happy St. Patrick's Day.
