I love ice cream. Actually, “love” may be an understatement. I have an obsession.
When I was in middle school, I used to eat ice cream for breakfast. My parents had already left for work when I was getting up and getting ready for school. I would scoop out some ice cream and saddle up on the couch and watch TRL (that’s “Total Request Live”) on rerun from the night before or the countdown for rap and R&B..the name is escaping me but I distinctly remember Tyrese’s “Sweet Lady” making multiple appearances.
Anyway, one of my favorite ice creams was always mint chocolate chip. I stopped eating it when my step dad introduced me to Moose Tracks, but craved the mint when I was pregnant with Dylan. It was the only time I had a “I must have this, please go get it for me” craving. I am pretty sure I made Dan go get it for me at 9pm one night, while he was watching one of his favorite shows. Thank God for DVR.
When we were on vacation with my in-laws, someone came home from the grocery store with Oreo thins. What?! Why?! I took this as a challenge, naturally, and created a mint chocolate chip milkshake. It is crazy easy and you can customize it to your liking.
You can use any Oreo you’d like! I love how there are pretty little green flecks throughout the milkshake. This was so delicious!
Here is the recipe!
