Copycat McDonald’s Shamrock Shake Recipe

I know I’ve said it before, but I crave milkshakes so bad when I am pregnant!  Once I had a McDonald’s Shamrock Shake, I knew I needed to come home and make one ASAP!  This tasted just as good as the real thing and I didn’t even have to leave the house to get my milkshake fix. 🙂

    Are there different types of 'mint' to use in this? Or can peppermint extract expire? I don't know how old mine is, maybe a year or two, but it smelled ok. One sip of this shake and I gagged - the peppermint is just SO strong. I'm disappointed that I wasted that much good ice cream on this - now I can't get the taste out of my mouth. :(
