Green Mint Chip Mudslide Milkshake

St. Patrick’s Day is almost here! Get ready to celebrate with a fun adult milkshake. Minty, chocolate and a little booze is just what this Irish girl needs to get me in the mood for St. Patty’s!

Since I’m in Florida for the next few days, I’ve got a very special guest taking over my blog while I’m gone… :)

Green Mint Chip Mudslide Milkshake - Get ready for St. Patrick's Day with an adult milkshake!

Hello all!  My name is Carrie, & I am happy to be hanging out at The Tasty Fork just for today sharing my delicious recipe for a grown-ups only milkshake perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.

But first let me say hello and tell you a little about myself and my blog…

I have been blogging over at Frugal Foodie Mama since January of 2011.  Most often you will find me there sharing my favorite recipes, my antics as a stay-at-home mama to a toddler and a teenager, & my tips for how I have managed to remain a foodie on our single income budget.

I also have a niche for creating fun cocktails (I blame that on my years as a server & bartender back in the day), and for finding fun ways to bake and cook with booze.  I enjoy it so much so that myself and another food blogger started a Spiked! Recipe Challenge last year.  (Be sure you pop on over & check the challenge out! We are hosting our next recipe challenge in April.)

Now let’s get back to that adult milkshake, shall we? ;)

Mudslides have to be one of my favorite frozen adult treats.  Traditionally frozen mudslides are made with vanilla ice cream, but I wanted to give this spiked milkshake a St. Patrick’s Day twist by using mint chocolate chip ice cream instead.

I also gave it a little extra chocolate kick by using chocolate vodka instead of plain vodka.

This Green Mint Chip Mudslide is green, Irish (ahem… Bailey’s), and creamy & delicious… Much better than doing shots of whiskey if you ask me… ;)
