If find yourself craving them year-round . . . or you'd rather make them at home instead of drinking a cup of mysterious, green chemicals . . . here's a recipe that comes pretty close to the real thing but it has REAL ingredients:
--Three cups of a high-quality real vanilla ice cream.
--One and 3/4 cups of milk (more or less to suit your thickness preference.)
--1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract (a little bit goes a long way!)
--Green food coloring.
Mix those four ingredients in a blender and enjoy!
