Yummy Shakes like McDonald's Shakes

Aside from using the blender, this is how I make my shakes. I use a portable blender :) It's quick and easy to clean. One night we made some shakes of different flavors using this one. I had avocado shake (avocado,milk,sugar and ice) and hubby had oreo shake (oreo ice cream and milk). Both tasted good! You must try it yourself. You may make any flavored ice cream for shakes, just add a bit of milk and blend. It is healthier if you will have fresh fruits and just add milk, ice and sugar. Make some for this hot season.

Here are another recipes for a shake which you need to use the blender.

It's McDonald's Shakes

2 cups ice cream (your choice of flavor)
1 1/2 cups low−fat milk
3 Tablspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon pectin

Combine all ingredients in blender. Makes 2 servings.

McDonald's Shamrock Shakes

2 cups vanilla ice cream
1 cup milk
1/4 cup half and half
1/4 teaspoon MINT extract (not peppermint)
8 drops green food coloring

Mix all ingredients on high speed until smooth. Stop blender, stir and blend
again, if necessary to combine ingredients. Makes 2 − 12 oz. shakes.
